About the United States Postal Service

A self-supporting, independent federal agency, the U.S. Postal Service is the only delivery service that reaches every address in the nation: 160 million residences, businesses and Post Office Boxes. We are the second largest company in America. The U.S. Postal Service provides accelerated career paths through our entry level developmental programs, such as the Professional Development Program and the Seasonal Internship Program.

Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion is key to our corporate success because it affects every aspect of the organization—employees, customers, and the business. Our investment in a strong diversity program creates a positive work environment that recognizes the contributions of all our employees, and it provides us with a strategic advantage.
