Post Opportunities

PMF appointment, rotational, and training opportunities are all posted in the PMF Talent Acquisition System (TAS). Such opportunities are exclusively for current Finalists and Fellows only. Finalists will use the PMF TAS to search for available PMF appointment opportunities (from the Become a PMF\Find a Job\Job Search webpage) and Fellows will use it to search for rotational and training opportunities (from the Current PMFs\Training and Development webpage). A single template is used by agencies to build all opportunities and a sample can be found below and under the Agencies\Resources webpage.

Agency PMF Coordinators and Agency HR Recruiters have access to the PMF TAS to create these opportunities. Once in the PMF TAS, users navigate to the "Launch Pad" where they will find the "Hiring Management" module. The PMF template shortens the process as it is used as an announcement board. Applicants do not apply through the PMF TAS for opportunities. This allows Agency Users to skip some of the steps in the process. There are seven steps to post an opportunity.

  • Step 1:  Announcement Information - contains the organization, position title, series, grade, opening and closing dates, and duty location
  • Step 2:  Announcement Text - description of the opportunity, agency information, how to apply, and qualifications
  • Step 3:  External Job Board Information - most information is pre-populated; only update the name of the hiring agency and contact information
  • Step 4:  Assign Questions - Skip this area
  • Step 5:  Crediting Plan - Skip this area
  • Step 6:  Phasing, Tracking and Notification Information - Assign the type of opportunity (e.g., appointment, rotation, or training) and the date entered in the system
  • Step 7:  Administrative Settings - Approve the announcement for posting

Please refer to the PMF TAS User Guide for Agencies and templates below for detailed instructions and help on posting opportunities. In addition, agencies can find a sample template on how an opportunity will appear on-line in the table below.

Only registered Agency Users have access to the PMF TAS to post opportunities. The PMF Program Office manages the Agency PMF Coordinator accounts at the primary, agency-wide level. Coordinators can grant access for those serving as Agency PMF Coordinators at the sub-agency level, Agency HR Recruiters, and other Agency Users (e.g., those needing to search for Finalists). Only primary agency-wide Coordinators can query various system reports. Please contact your designated Agency PMF Coordinator for assistance.
