Virtual Hiring Resource Center

collage of people at work

Welcome to the Virtual Hiring Resource page. Here you will find all the items discussed and presented during the LIVE HHS & FDA Virtual Hiring Events. Please review the material provided to learn about the Federal Hiring Process from our experts here at HHS & FDA. They will take you through the steps of developing your federal resume, setting up and using USAJOBS and much more.

Over the next few weeks we will be taking steps to review and restructure entire Virtual Hiring website. As we have progressed through this process and listed to your comments and suggestions, we have learned a lot. We now intend to all that we have learned from this process and make the information and website more user friendly for everyone. Some of the changes we are making are as follows:

  • New videos on additional topics
  • Re-recording and enhancing the original sessions
  • Calendar of future events and training session
  • Section dedicated to the most common questions
  • And much more

We are extremely thankful for your support though this entire process. We have learned a lot from our successes and failures. However our end goal is to provide you with the tools you need to be successful in your journey towards employment.

We are encouraged that so many people have responded so positively we wish all of you the best as you move forward.

Thank you,

Michael J Kawczynski


We have included both the full length video version of the Hiring Event and the individual sections of the presentation, in both video and text format. In sections 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 we have provided both the Flash video version of the presentation and a YouTube version.

The Flash version is the original copy and of higher quality, but requires you have a flash player to view. We have also provided you the converted YouTube Version of these presentations. However you may notice that the video track on the YouTube version is slightly delayed.
