The Internal Revenue Service now has a new job search tool on YouTube dedicated to helping job seekers learn about employment opportunities at the IRS. The IRS has a wide range of jobs and needs staff with a variety of skills to serve the nation's taxpayers.
As many recent high school and college graduates actively seek employment, the IRS’s new YouTube playlist, Working at the IRS, provides information about various career paths available throughout the nation’s tax administration agency. The playlist features “Day in the Life” videos in which IRS employees discuss their jobs, the diversity of the IRS workforce and the culture of the agency.
“This is a great opportunity for new graduates and applicants to explore employment with the IRS and join a dedicated workforce serving our nation’s taxpayers,” IRS Chief Human Capital Officer James Falcone said. “Potential applicants can learn a lot from a job description. But showcasing our talented employees on YouTube gives applicants first-hand insight into whether or not they would be a good fit for a particular position.”
The IRS has more than 100,000 full-time and seasonal employees and hires new employees throughout the year to fill a wide array of positions, including revenue agents, revenue officers, criminal investigation special agents, financial analysts and economists.
The job video playlist on YouTube complements other video tax tips on the IRS YouTube channel (IRSvideos) for individuals and businesses. The IRS has videos in English, American Sign Language (IRSvideosASL) and Spanish (IRSvideosmultilingual).
New IRS Careers Website
In addition to the new YouTube playlist, the IRS Human Capital Office recently launched a new and improved IRS Careers Website with more detailed information on job openings, how to apply for new positions, what qualifications potential candidates need, and information on the benefits of working at the IRS. The site features a direct link to the IRS on USAJobs.com, the main source for federal employment opportunities, allowing candidates to focus their job search.
