How to create a profile

You need to create and complete a profile to apply to jobs, save searches and save jobs. But first, you need to create a login.gov account.

To create and complete a profile:

  1. Follow the steps to create a login.gov account and click Continue to USAJOBS at the end.
  2. Click Create Profile (if you don’t already have one) when you’re back at USAJOBS.
  3. Complete all of the required fields in the Profile section.

We recommend you also fill out the other sections of your profile and your Preferences, because we can use this information to improve your job search results.

You must complete the required sections of your profile before you can submit this application.

This means your profile isn’t complete. Click Continue to Profile and complete all of the required fields.
