Federal Career Transition Assistance Programs (CTAPS) are designed to help federal help employees who have been laid off from their jobs to fill new vacancies with the same agency or find similar jobs in a private sector career.
Before they were famous, many truly influential men and women started by serving their country in the US military or grew up in military families.

How Military Career Transition Assistance Can Help Find Your Next Federal Job

Federal Career Transition Assistance Programs (CTAPS) are designed to help federal help employees who have been laid off from their jobs to fill new vacancies with the same agency, to find similar jobs in a private sector career, or to find new work within another federal agency.

ICTAP is the Interagency Career Transition Assistance Plan that helps place separated federal employees into other agencies or departments.


If your department has undergone a reduction in force (RIF), you are eligible for CTAP. You can also participate in CTAP if you retire rather than be laid off in an RIF action. If you have suffered a compensable injury, or you refused a transfer of function or a reassignment, you can also participate in CTAP.


CTAP provides a number of employment support services, including training for a career transition with an initial skills inventory and assessment, and access to relevant job-search information. You can attend seminars and workshops on resume writing and interview techniques, and use special application and resume software.


You will also be given special selection priority; the department where you worked must give priority position to benefit from priority selection. If you are applying for a job in a different federal agency, you must live within the local commuting area and you must be well-qualified for the position.

You have eligibility for this CTAP and ICTAP programs for one year from the time of your separation; don't wait too long to take advantage of this federal job placement option.
