    The DS-0174, Application for Employment as a Locally Employed Staff

for recruitments conducted at approximately 170 U.S. embassies and

Methodology

    Candidates for employment use the DS-0174 to apply for Mission-
advertised positions throughout the world. Mission recruitments 
generate approximately 40,000 applications per year. Data that HR and 
hiring officials extract from the DS-0174 determine eligibility for 
employment, qualifications for the position, and selections according 
to Federal policies.
