people applying for a jobThe process for applying for a job on Fort Leonard Wood is all done via the Internet. The first thing all "Appropriated Funds" applicants must do is prepare and/or upload their resume to USA Jobs. To get started you must "Create a Profile" or "Sign In". Here you will see the Resume Builder/Upload Tool.

After you have created your resume, you are ready to start your job search and apply online. USA Jobs is the primary job search database for all Appropriated Fund and Non-Appropriated Fund positions.

When you see a job announced for which you want to be considered you must apply during the time frame listed on the announcement.

The personnel then provide selecting officials a referral list of the best qualified candidates from which to select. Once the supervisor makes his/her selection, we make a tentative job offer to the person selected by telephone. After information is collected and verified (Qualifications such as Appointment Eligibility, Veteran Preference, and etc) personnel with call the selectee with a firm offer. If information cannot be verified, no firm job offer will be made.
