How do I apply for U.S. Postal Service jobs and exams?

You do not apply for an exam; you apply for a job. You are scheduled to take the proper exam as you apply for a job.

But the frustrating glitches and obstacles in the online job application process can prohibit success. See our How to Apply page for details.

Over 95% of all Postal jobs are filled from new exams 474, 475, 476 & 477. So you will almost certainly take one of these four tests.

Effective test preparation is essential. It is imperative to achieve your best possible score the first time around because (1) the job is automatically offered to the applicant with the highest score and (2) if you do not score high enough to get the job, depending upon your particular score, you must wait either one year or two years to re-take the exam.
