The Canandaigua VA Medical Center encourages individuals with a disability or disabilities to apply for employment.

We offer individuals with disabilities the opportunity to apply for employment even when there are no current position vacancies or open job announcements. People with qualifying disabilities can be appointed to Federal jobs non-competitively through a process called Schedule A. If you would like more information on your rights as an individual with a disability, consult the Federal Employment of People with Disabilities. 

Additional information for Veterans regarding the Department of Veterans Affairs Veterans' Recruitment Appointment (VRA):

The VRA is a special authority by which agencies can, if they wish, appoint eligible veterans to positions for which they are qualified, up to and including GS-11 or equivalent, without issuing a vacancy announcement. Ordinarily, an agency may simply appoint any VRA eligible who meets the basic qualifications requirements for the position to be filled without having to announce the job or rate and rank applicants. However, Veterans' preference applies in making appointments under the VRA authority. This means that if an agency has two (2) or more VRA candidates and one (1) or more is a preference eligible, the agency must apply Veterans' preference. Furthermore, an agency must consider all VRA candidates on file who are qualified for the position and could reasonably expect to be considered for the opportunity; it cannot place VRA candidates in separate groups or consider them as separate sources in order to avoid applying preference or to reach a favored candidate. Veterans are hired using an excepted appointment to positions in the competitive service. After the individual satisfactorily completes two (2) years of service, the Veteran must be converted non-competitively to a career or career-conditional appointment.  Agencies must also establish a training or education program for any VRA appointee who has less than 15 years of education. This program should meet the needs of both the agency and the employee.

Responding to a Job Announcement

Be sure to follow the “How to Apply” and “Required Documents” instructions given in the job announcement. They are your primary guide for responding to a posted opening. The vast majority of positions require an online application with the exception of a few healthcare occupations therefore it is important to fully complete the online application process after which you should receive a system-generated confirmation via email.

If you are unable to comply with the application instructions and require assistance or if you have additional questions, you should contact the point of contact in the “Agency contact information” section at the bottom of the announcement.
