Your CDC Journey Begins Here

Congratulations on your new position with the CDC. We’re glad to be your employer of choice!

Our New Employee Orientation Program is a two-part process designed to help you smoothly transition into your new role and provide you with a solid foundation for a productive and satisfying career. The following information, in addition to your employee checklist, will give you an idea of what to expect.


Before You Arrive

All new employees receive an official offer letter and a welcome letter from the Human Resources Office (HRO). The offer letter specifies your new job title, the Center, Institute and/or Office (CIO) to which you are assigned, and salary information. The welcome letter includes infor-mation about our two-part orientation, including the times, dates and locations, and how to access Onboarding Manager, the automated system for preparing and submitting your HR paperwork prior to your first day.

Part 1: Logistics and Learning

In part one—your first day—of the orientation process, you will be sworn in to federal service; sign your completed HR forms; learn more about the CDC’s vision, mission and core values, and hear from our administrative experts from human resources,ethics, and Safety and Security, among others.

Part 2: Exploring the World of CDC

Part Two of the orientation process is an in-depth exploration of the CDC that takes place every other month at our headquar-ters building in Atlanta. It will highlight the CDC’s role in public health and the many special components of the agency that make us a leader in public health and prevention.

Orientation for Regional, Field and International Staff

Our field staff, an invaluable first-line defense against public health threats, collaborate with local and state health districts and departments of health, as well as ministries of health overseas. Orientation for field staff varies according to the organization to which they have been assigned. More
