Creating a SME-QA job announcement

When the content of your well-written job announcement is complete, create a draft announcement on USAJOBS.

Recruiting For Your Roles

To attract highly qualified applicants who don't typically search USAJOBS, plan to advertise your announcement before posting using common private sector recruitment methods.

Plain Language Guidelines for Writing Your Job Announcement

The job announcement should be an accurate representation of the position and not come verbatim from the Position Descripion.
