Department of Interior, Indian Affairs -- Hiring a Genealogist

Please feel free to disseminate the following information to anyone who may be interested.  It pertains to a job announcement for a genealogist (permanent professional position) in the Department of Interior, Indian Affairs.

Please do not contact NGS as I have no information other than that given below.  Do click the provided links for full details

The Genealogist, GS-0101-13 vacancy is now open and will close at 12 midnight on Tuesday, September 29.  The vacancy announcement numbers are CD-15-PQ1478707 (DEU) and CD-15-PQ1478711 (MP) and can be accessed directly by following the links provided:

NOTE:  Please let potential applicants know that when they get on www.usajobs.gov and search for Genealogist it will say that no jobs were found.  This is because applicants must click on the circle to the left of the screen next to “jobs for Federal Employees.”  The vacancy announcement will then appear.  This applies to current employees as well as Tribal members.

Current and former Federal employees must submit their SF-50, BIA Form 4432, and resume(s).  They should not submit award SF-50s, however, as those do not contain all the data we need.  Also, Federal employees must meet time-in-grade requirements – this means that they must possess one year of specialized experience at the next lower grade level to qualify for the grade for which they are applying (e.g., they must have one year of specialized experience at the next lower grade level to be considered).

Tribal members must submit their BIA Form 4432 and resume(s).

OF-306 Requirement:  Please be aware that it is a requirement for all applicants to submit a completed OF-306 form with their application.

Resumes should be geared towards the specialized experience qualification requirements stated in the vacancy announcement and this experience must be clearly shown on their resumes for them to be considered qualified.  While a candidate may serve in a position(s) with the same title or similar title of the position, if that candidate’s resume does not address the specialized experience and/or duties performed in the position held, the candidate will not be found eligible.
