In case you are looking for better opportunities within the USPS organization, and you think that you have the necessary skills, you can quickly apply for an open position through the LiteBlue eCareer portal. Essentially, it allows you to make a vertical or a lateral move within the organization. So, as the name suggests, the eCareer portal gives you the option to apply for careers within USPS electronically. This eliminates the need for paper and email-based applications that is an inefficient method. Now that you know what the LiteBlue eCareer is, it is time to understand how to access it and use it. Let us find out.
Who can use LiteBlue eCareer?
To apply for jobs using LiteBlue eCareer, you need to be a career employee. If you are a non-career employee (a temporary employee), you cannot use eCareer to apply for a job. If you happen to be a non-career employee, you can only apply for externally posted jobs via this URL: www.usps.com/employment. You will have to create an external account or log in to an existing external account and then apply. LiteBlue eCareer is all about internally posted jobs available only for career employees. Also, Postmaster Reliefs can use the eCareer portal. They are allowed to apply for and compete for career 6-hour Postmaster vacancies that have been announced internally. Also, they need to ensure that the vacancies are available within their districts with an area of consideration expanded to the career bargaining employees.
