There are many challenging job opportunities within FSIS. Veterinarians serve in positions in field operations, technical services, international operations, and as scientific and policy advisors in the Agency. These positions vary in grade and salary based on responsibility, educational level, and experience. As you progress in FSIS, opportunities exist for traditional positions designated exclusively for veterinarians but also for non-traditional positions.
Where to Start?
There are two personnel systems to consider. One is the General Service and the other is the Public Health Service Commissioned Corps as a Veterinary Officer. You must be a U. S. citizen to work in the Federal Government. If you are currently employed by FSIS, you may consider the Commissioned Corps. Please refer to the Office of Personnel Management's Web site for details on all qualifications.
