All Federal agencies fill their jobs like any other private industry. They allow applicants to contact the agency online directly for job information and application processing. But, while applying for a government job is still similar, there are many differences due to the many laws, and regulations.

If you want to apply you can mail, or fax your resume, even apply online using their resume in My USAJOBS. Or you can use the OF-612 application for Federal Employment, instead of sending a resume.
There are only a few positions that will require you to take a written test.

The area of consideration, that is listed right there on the federal vacancy announcement, is the area or demographics that the agency will consider hiring candidates from. The agency will designate whatever area of consideration it considers to be appropriate. A candidate that may reside outside the area of consideration unfortunately will not be considered for employment.

Visit any government website for more detail on working for the government and how to apply.
