First-Ever CareerSMART Event in DC Wednesday, Nov. 14th
The U.S. Postal Service will highlight professional employment opportunities in nearly every occupation during a free career information event on Wednesday, Nov. 14 in Washington, DC.
CareerSMART will showcase the Postal Service’s need for professionals, e.g., accountants, lawyers and engineers, and give job seekers opportunities to talk with USPS representatives about advantages of a Postal Service career. Candidates will learn about current openings and can drop off résumés.
“Our business is processing and delivering mail; however, few people know that the Postal Service is one of the largest businesses in the world — and has occupations in every profession from IT to engineering to supply management,” said Deborah Giannoni-Jackson, Vice President, Employee Resource Management.
The Postal Service is on the Forbes Global 100 list as one of the world’s largest companies, with nearly 700,000 career employees. Competitive pay and benefits packages are offered, as well as innovative training, development and educational opportunities. The array of job responsibilities and opportunities for learning enable employees to use skills early in their careers and provides opportunities for changes in jobs while still staying with the same employer, according to Giannoni-Jackson.
“We want people to recognize the many opportunities and benefits offered by the Postal Service,” said Giannoni-Jackson. “The Postal Service is a leader in the use of innovation and technology, is committed to protecting the environment, and is a leader in the communities where we operate.”
Current and future career opportunities are available with the Postal Service in these and other areas:
