What do we mean by federal jobs?

Among the legislative, judicial, and executive branches of the federal government, the opportunities for employment are vast. Politicians and legislative staff, civil servants, and members of the armed forces are all considered federal employees. There are many ways to work in the federal government, but this website largely focuses on full-time career civil-service employment within the 15 executive branch departments, which make up the cabinet and numerous independent agencies and government corporations.

There are roughly 2 million civilian government jobs at more than 120 federal departments and agencies, not including the U.S. Postal Service. These jobs are available in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, all U.S. territories, and more than 140 foreign countries worldwide.
