"Clunky but getting better"

What do you like best?

I like that you can create a profile, and the site will auto fill all of your information to most applications. Not having to fill out the same information over and over when you're applying to multiple jobs is a HUGE plus.

What do you dislike?

Searching can be a little challenging at times. I am not sure if it is the site that causes the issue, or if it is the individual agencies that cause the issue. When searching using keywords, such as "Law enforcement" you don't always get the jobs you're looking for. I seem to get a lot of jobs that will come through that mention "works with law enforcement" somewhere in the description and this muddies my search results.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was able to apply to many jobs with relative ease.

"Review of USA Jobs"

What do you like best?

I liked the fact it can allow employers to find candidates for their positions. It also allows candidates to search and find employment opportunities which fit their backgrounds.

What do you dislike?

I did not like the fact that many of the positions on this site as a job seeking candidate often have strict requirements to meet for hire. Also the layout can be difficult to follow in choosing how to filter searches for desired results.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend others use this product, because it effectively screeens for the best potential employees. For job seekers it helps them to find career openings that best fit their experience and skillset.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Traditionally, this is useful in solving the absence of a job; however, the hiring processes of these positions can be a rather long process. For example, when submitting an application it can take extended time before an interview is even set up. Many positions require a test to be completed and pre-screening questions or documentation be reviewed. Time table on these things can be many weeks or several months.

"Convoluted and Ineffective Process "

What do you like best?

A searchable database allows the user to search by many parameters to find job openings

What do you dislike?

This application process works like a black hole and prevents very qualified and enthusiastic candidates from applying. Many positions are filled before being posted and there is so much text to weed through on each page that it's difficult to find the critical information. Also, there are algorithms that search for certain key words to determine eligibility, but that is all very mysterious to the user.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Figure out key terms to use in your application materials; contact an individual human before you submit to ensure the job is open and a good fit

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It attempts to hire new talent for government jobs, but does a very poor job. It is often redundant with hiring decisions that have already been made.

What I like best about USAJobs is that it is very user friendly and allows for many filters to be applied along with specific locations to be pinpointed for jobs or positions.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike about USAJobs is that when it comes to file downloading it seems that sometimes it does not read well with their program and jumbles up your layout and format.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problems I am solving with USAJobs is being able to apply for government jobs easily and able to obtain very direct means of applying.
