Burning Question: Is the new USAJobs a step forward?

The government's job application system recently got a makeover. After a weekend-long transformation earlier this month, USAJobs 3.0, the latest iteration of the website, now is up and running and ready for public use.

According to the Office of Personnel Management, the new USAJobs was designed to make the employment search process easier for potential hires and federal recruiters alike. One official even compared the revised system to Amazon and other major retail sites that allow users to "window shop" and find the products they are seeking with ease.

But as with any overhaul, glitches and confusion are bound to occur. We've had a hard time connecting to the site, and the USAJobs Facebook page has been flooded with complaints that the system isn't functional or user-friendly.

So, tell us in the comment section for this story -- USAJobs 3.0, boom or bust?
