Hi,

There are a couple of positions I am interested in (with different agencies). In cases where the same job is posted twice (once for all US citizens, and a separate posting for current federal employees), does it make sense to apply to both? Is there a benefit to applying for the "US citizens" announcement in addition to the current federal employees announcement?

Yes, always apply to both, if qualified.

There is a difference.

Us citizen jobs veterans have an advantage. If you are a current fed, say you retired after 20 yrsenlistedservice and got a job as a 7 but given your experience you are qualified for GS 12 level jobs. A job that closely matches what you did in militaryopens up as a civ job you can’t get it through current feds because you need to climb the ladder. You can apply as a US citizens snd get it.

Not 100% accurate. You could apply to the internal announcement if VEOA is listed as an option (or if the announcement is open to those civil servants outside the agency, and so VEOA would apply as well). Or if you were 30% or more Disability Rated by the VA, and then that could be the hiring authority used...and so on.

Bottom line...always apply under every hiring authority you qualify for. You never know which cert will be the one used!
