There also may be age limits for some positions based on the physical demands of the position. These positions may include jobs within the US Border Patrol also certain job within the Department of Justice. On the flip side of this, the Federal Government tends to go out of their way to hire Senior workers. In fact, the US Government has a Senior Executive program. Seniors often find it easier to get a job working for the Federal government as they have more experience than someone younger trying to begin their careers. Many workers are US Veterans or have previously worked for the government and are a returning employee.
