(November 2, 2022) — There has been some recent confusion regarding a recent job announcement for GS-1340 Meteorologists grades 5 through 9, USAjobs Announcement number: NWS-23-11699756-DE, with promotion potential to a GS-12.
With the implementation of the Mobility MOU, NWSEO agreed to post an out-of-cycle GS-1340-5/7/9 DE-only announcement before the next series of GS-1340-5/12 announcements to support the pace of hiring. The hope was for the out-of-cycle job posting to occur in late August. That was not the case, however, due to delays caused by the transition from jobs being posted on Monster.com to USA Staffing.
As a result, the out-of-cycle job ad was posted on October 31. With this out-of-cycle job ad posted, the next priorities will be GS-1340-13 Lead Meteorologist positions, expected to be posted by the end of this week, and GS-1340-11/12 MAP w/PCS positions.
Now that the out-of-cycle job ad has posted, the next full round of GS-1340-5/12 announcements, as outlined in the MOU, are:
Around Nov 15 or so, post GS-1340-11/12 MAP w/PCS
Around Dec 5, post a round of GS-1340-11/12 RON announcements
Around Jan 2, post the next GS-1340-5/7/9 DE-only announcement
