Current eligible employees can self-direct their careers by applying for open positions within the Federal Reserve. The primary objective is to fill the position with a person whose qualifications best match the requirements of the position and whose career would be best served by a developmental opportunity. Generally, anyone who has been in his or her current position successfully for one year or longer can apply.

Performance Evaluations
