Abstract:

FOCIS is a PC-based software system developed by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management to help job seekers and Federal employees obtain information about Federal careers, occupations and training. FOCIS has three modules or parts. The first part will give you career guidance, occupational information, and advice on how to find a job. It will assist you in matching your interests, preferences and abilities to a suitable line of work and allow you to quickly access information on Federal occupations and Government organizations. After you find an occupation which you want and for which you are qualified, you can learn how to apply for jobs. The second module will make it possible for you to search current job openings. Your computer must have a modem in order for you to be able to transfer computerized listings of job vacancies from the Office of Personnel Management OPM to your computer. The third module provides information about a large number of training courses that are available to Federal employees.
