USAJOBS.gov offers you a variety of ways to search the database of current job openings. The easiest way to look through this database is to perform a broad keyword search, and then refine your results according to your preferences. No matter how you search, you can refine your results in a variety of ways. Once you have determined your work priorities, you will likely have very specific preferences in mind. Refine your search using that criteria through the “refine your results” box or through the “advanced search” feature.

A normal “Search” for Jobs in Japan should include the following:


  • Yokosuka, Japan AND Yokosuka Naval base, Japan
  • Sasebo, Japan AND Sasebo Naval base, Japan
  •     (Note that using Yokohama, Japan will also yield results for Yokosuka Agency)
  • Department of Defense, Department of the Navy Relocation Authorized:
  • Yes Grade:
  • GS 09-15
  • Agency - U.S. Pacific Fleet, Commander in Chief
  • And, the most important part: Check “Federal Employees.” Typically, SRF-JRMC and PSNS Det jobs are not available to ALL US CITIZENS.
