Agency Guidance for Populating Government-Wide USAJOBS Portals with MHME

Mission Critical Custom Tagging - woman working on a laptop

OPM has pushed out numerous job sites to help agencies better advertise mission-critical occupations to in-demand job seekers. Some of these job sites automatically populate if agencies have relevant hiring paths marked or are using existing MCO tags in their MHME system. Others require agencies to update their MHME system with custom MCO tags and then those tagged vacancies will begin to pull through to these portals. Below are all the current government-wide job sites offered by USAJOBS with guidance on how to leverage these for your agency’s vacancies.


These pages will only populate if you specifically select the correct predefined (MonsterGov added) or custom tag (Agency added).  For instructions on how users can leverage MCO tags in MHME, refer to the guide here.  System administrators: access the 4.15.2 Release Notes posted to the Corner for guidance on adding custom MCO tags into MHME.
