For many people, completing the required U.S. Postal Service (USPS) exam is the biggest hurdle of the application process for employment with the USPS. Once you complete the exam, you will likely be eager to know your score. The USPS online job application system lets you search for job openings, apply for jobs, schedule postal exams and view your postal exam scores.

Check the email address associated with your USPS candidate profile, if you have one. If you created a candidate profile prior to taking the exam, then your exam score was immediately sent to your email address after you completed the exam. If you do not already have a candidate profile, continue to the next step to create one and receive your postal exam score.

Visit (the official website of the U.S. Postal Service) and set up a candidate profile by selecting “Careers” from the bottom of the homepage, then selecting “Create your eCareer profile” on the right sidebar.

Complete the required forms, and enter the Exam History Code that you received from the official testing center where you took your postal exam.

Submit your information.

Access your candidate profile to view your score. It will be posted within 24 hours.
