Get Postal Jobs in Any Economy!

With over 500,000 employees at more than 31,000 facilities, the U.S. Postal Service is one of the largest employers in the world. By constitutional mandate, they process and deliver 493 million pieces of mail to 157 million residential and commercial addresses daily. It takes an army of workers to fulfill this mandate. Regardless of the economy, they always need motivated employees.

Your Personal Guide to Success

The new system allows you to apply anytime, but it is a nightmare to use. Finding all the job listings is virtually impossible without tips for getting around the programming glitches and chronic posting errors. And the new Postal exams still carry failure rates of 80-90%. Now more than ever, professional guidance and test prep assistance are essential for a successful Postal job search.
