Updating An Application

For most announcements, applicants can review or revise their application at any point during the open period of the announcement. They can view, update their responses or documents, and/or submit or resubmit their application unless the HR User has specifically prohibited updates to the application from the Vacancy Settings page in USA Staffing.

To update an application, applicants should log into their USAJOBS account through Login.gov and click the + next to the job they want to update. They can then click the Update Application button. They will be directed to the USA Staffing application. When they have made their changes, they will need to click the Submit Application button for the changes to be made.
