As a current Fed, I recently saw an announcement that was Delegated Exam Authority: Open to public. I emailed HR and was informed that it is NOT Schedule A eligible.

How does one know if a job announcement is Schedule A eligible? Only if it is stated in the job announcement? Or, do I have to keep emailing HR to find out? In which, half the time I NEVER receive a reply back.

Thanks in advance. I

The path of least resistance is the "eligible for special hiring authorities (e.g., the Schedule A appointment for persons with disabilities" job announcements. HR is not the authoritative resource. The point of contact is the selective placement program coordinator. Stop emailing HR with questions answered in detail elsewhere.

A Schedule A hiring would result in a two year trial period. Not ideal for a current federal employee. Expect little if any helpful information from management or HR.

How do I know a job is open to individuals with a disability?
In the job announcement look for the This job is open to section. When a job is open to Individuals with a disability you’ll see this icon: There may be other groups listed that can also apply.

You can also select the Individuals with disabilities filter in search. Your results will display all jobs open to individuals with disabilities.


-->> -->> This job is open to... Individuals with disabilities & click Apply. <<-- <<--

If This job is open to... Individuals with disabilities NOT = YES do not click Apply.

Stop emailing HR. Stop emailing SPPC. Apply via USA Jobs.
