Non-Competitive (No Public Announcement Requirement)
Allows Federal agencies to appoint veterans to positions for which they qualify up to the GS-11 level without competition. After satisfactorily completing 2 years of service, the veteran will be converted noncompetitively to a career-conditional appointment.
The following veterans (if they received either an honorable or general discharge) may be eligible for this appointment:

A term appointment is a non-status appointment to a position in the competitive service for a specified period exceeding 2 years and lasting no more than 4 years.
