WASHINGTON – The Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE/NNSA) will host an online virtual job fair, Wednesday, June 24 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern Time.

Candidates can apply for NNSA federal positions in fields like general engineering, physical sciences, operations research, public affairs, and security. NNSA personnel will review resumes submitted in advance to help determine which candidates may be scheduled for interviews during the virtual job fair. Candidates will also be able to have one-on-one chats with hiring managers and human resource professionals regarding available opportunities.
Locations for these positions include Albuquerque, New Mexico; Amarillo, Texas; Kansas City, Missouri; Las Vegas, Nevada; Livermore, California; Oak Ridge, Tennessee; and Washington, DC. Individuals are encouraged to register for the event as soon as possible here.

“This virtual job fair presents an excellent opportunity to begin a career with the Nuclear Security Enterprise, from the safety of your own home,” said Frank Lowery, NNSA’s Associate Administrator for Management and Budget. “We have been hiring new team members for our national security missions throughout the COVID-19 pandemic by using virtual interviews and the like, so this virtual job fair is a very logical extension of our approach.”
From the job fair’s online registration platform, candidates will have the opportunity to browse videos about NNSA’s different sites. From the virtual lobby, attendees will be able to visit program booths, view information for each of NNSA’s locations, and if interested, apply directly for jobs of interest from the virtual fair.
Candidates will also have the opportunity to register and submit resumes the day of the event, although pre-registration is strongly encouraged. Depending on the number of people who register and submit resumes, follow-up interviews may continue to take place for several days after the event.
Working at NNSA means a competitive salary under an alternative pay system, rather than the General Schedule. Additionally, NNSA offers federal benefits to include health insurance, Thrift Savings Plan, paid leave, flexible work schedules, and transportation subsidies.
