Information on job vacancies with the Federal Government and the Postal Service is provided free of charge. However,

and apply for Federal jobs. Some companies go so far as to use names that imply affiliation with the Federal
Government such as the "U.S. Agency for Career Advancement," or "Postal Employment Service."
