Step 1 – Create a USAJOBS Account

To apply for NRC job vacancies you will need a USAJOBS account. Create your account now to complete your profile and build your resume. You may create and store up to five resumes in USAJOBS. If you already have an account with USAJOBS, we suggest you review its accuracy prior to applying for job vacancies.

Step 2 – Search for Job Opportunities

After you have completed the registration process and posted your resume(s) with USAJOBS, you will be ready to apply for NRC job opportunities. You can view a list of current NRC vacancies at USAJOBS, or search for NRC vacancies by using Search Jobs.

Once you have searched for and found a job opportunity of interest to you, please be sure to read the vacancy announcement carefully. Take this time to review your resume to make sure you meet the qualifications for the position. Be sure to review the major duties as well as the knowledge, skills and abilities listed in the vacancy so that you may be able to relate your experience to the job. Describe your accomplishments, process improvements, awards and commendations, training, and community or outside professional activities that are applicable to the position. Provide specific and detailed information including the start and end dates for each job you have held.

If you feel you meet the eligibility requirements, just select the “Apply Online” button and follow the online instructions. You will then be transferred to NRCareers and your USAJOBS registration information, including your resume, will flow from USAJOBS to NRCareers.

 
Step 3 – NRCareers Additional Information

Once you have been transferred to NRCareers, follow the online prompts to complete the application process. Be certain to read the on-screen instructions thoroughly before continuing. First, you will be asked to complete or update your information on file.

If you have previously applied for a position with the NRC, since our integration with USAJOBS, you will have the option to update your information on file each time you apply for a job. By selecting this option you will be able to verify that your data on file is accurate. After completing or updating your information, you will be informed of the announcement types you are eligible to apply to. Follow the prompts to continue.

Step 4 – Vacancy–Specific Questions

In addition to the personal information, demographic information and resume that you have already provided, you may be required to complete an online questionnaire. When an online questionnaire is part of the job announcement, you must respond to all the questions in order to successfully complete the application process. Be sure to read the announcement in its entirety before you apply to ensure you complete ALL required steps and attach any required supporting documentation such as your college transcript or performance appraisal. You will not be considered for the position if any part of the application is incomplete.

After successfully completing the application process you will be re-directed back to USAJOBS where you can view your application status, continue to search for job opportunities or apply for additional vacancies. You may return at any time until 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the closing date of the vacancy announcement to update or make changes to your application package. To do so, just follow the instructions above.

If you have any questions or need additional information about a specific vacancy announcement, please contact the Human Resources Specialist listed on that particular announcement.
