Log In to the Secure Web Site
All applications are taken electronically via the Great Jobs website. To apply for a TFS position, go to the main employment page (

Click on the “Search Postings” button, define your search criteria and choose “Search”. Then choose to “View” the position in which you’re interested. Click on “Apply for this Job Opening”. You may be asked additional questions.
Confirmation and Log Off
Once your application and additional documents have been successfully submitted, you will see a confirmation page. From there you can go to the “Manage Jobs” section. Please remember to log off when you are done.
If at any point in this process you need help or are unable to attach your resume to your online application, please contact
