You're eligible if you're a current federal employee at the hiring agency.

How do I know if a job is open internally?

In the job announcement look for the This job is open to section. When the job is open to current employees of the agency, you'll see the internal icon Internal to an agency.

There may be other groups listed that can also apply. Jobs are sometimes open internally only and sometimes internally as well as being open to other hiring paths. This is up to the agency's discretion.

You can also select the Internal to an agency filter in search. Your results will display all jobs open to current employees of the hiring agency.
