USAJOBS Video 1: Where to Search For IHS Jobs


Where to Search for IHS Jobs Welcome to the Indian Health Service. This
is the first of five videos created to assist you in applying for an Indian health profession
position through USAJOBS.gov. If you envision a career with a true purpose
and mission, the Indian Health Service is looking for people like you. If you are willing
to commit to working in Indian health communities where you can truly make a difference, we
encourage you to take the next step toward realizing your future. There are several websites where Indian Health
Service jobs can be found, such as: • IHSJobs under the current vacancies link
on the career opportunities section of the IHS.gov website
• USAJOBS.gov where you can find civil service and Commissioned Corps positions
• Health care Job Boards such as 3RNet.org and Healthecareers.com.
• Indian Health Service Facebook Pages, such as the Indian Health Service Health Professions
Recruitment and the Indian Health Service Dental Careers. You will notice that the jobs posted by IHS
offer one of three different career paths — federal civil service, US Public Health
Service Commissioned Corps and direct Tribal hire positions (listed on IHS.gov/JOBS). Each
career path requires its own set of forms and documentation; we suggest you read the
job vacancy thoroughly before applying. Please refer to Video #4 for more detailed information
on each career path. All IHS civil service and Commissioned Corps
positions, including paid externships, are posted online through USAJobs.gov. You must
submit your application through USAJOBS.gov with the exception of applying for a direct
Tribal hire position, which requires submitting your application through the job posting on
IHS.gov/Jobs. We also encourage you to seek out other tribal health positions by contacting
the various tribes or other contacts located in the job opportunity announcement, as there
may be other positions available. If you’re considering a Tribal hire position,
go to IHS.gov/jobs and we thank you for your interest. If you’re considering a civil
service or Commissioned Corps position, please view the five videos, each of which will prove
helpful during the application process. Contact us with questions at:
