The other is sometimes referred to as “External” announcements; these announcements are open to all U.S. citizens. To determine if you are eligible to apply under an internal announcement, locate the “Area of Consideration” or the “Who may Apply” on the announcements to see if you meet one of the categories that may apply for consideration.
