Why is Careers@Gov down for "scheduled maintenance"?

Planned maintenances keep Careers@Gov running smoothly to prevent disruption and/ or unforeseen difficulties to our job seekers. Such down times are important to keep our servers and software secured against any new vulnerabilities that surface from time-to-time.

We keep maintenances to a minimum of two (2) Sundays a month between 12 midnight to 8am and we will notify all job seekers and users of the Website at least one (1) week prior to the maintenance date via the Website.

During this period of time, you can still browse and apply for jobs using the Careers@Gov application which can be downloaded on iOS and Android.
