Government Job Applications / Resumes /
Application for Federal Employment Form OF-612" is a simplified application
that agencies can use in the recruiting process. Most agencies require
applicants to submit their applications through online resume builders and
federal style resumes are the more popular application method. The OF-612 form
is particularly useful for applicants who do not have extensive job-related
qualifications, such as recent graduates or applicants for entry level or wage
grade positions. This optional application form contains information considered
to be the minimum necessary to determine an applicant's qualifications.
The second form, "Declaration for Federal Employment", OF-306 is used
primarily to collect information on conduct and suitability, and also on other
matters, such as receipt of a government annuity. Agencies have the option of
asking applicants to complete this optional form at any time during the hiring
process, but it is required by all appointees, those selected for a job. It is
anticipated that only the final few applicants who have a good chance of
receiving a job offer would complete this form. This form also warns applicants
of the consequences of submitting fraudulent information and to ask them to
certify the accuracy of all of their application materials.
Applicants must also complete Occupational Questionnaires
to collect applicant information and qualifications in a format suitable for
automated processing. Different version of the forms are used, depending on the
occupation or automated system being used. Most of this data is now submitted
online through resume builders and the occupational questionnaire process.
