High level appointments must be confirmed by the Senate, Lower level appointment can be made on his own volition. How he chooses the people to appoint depends on the president. Most of them have advisers that they trust and rely on to help them select the right people for the various jobs. Big campaign donations seem to be a factor in choosing ambassadors.

The President appoints federal judges, including supreme court justices, ambassadors to foreign countries, cabinet secretaries and certain other cabinet level positions. All must be approved by a majority of the US Senate.

( Lower level positions are filled by civil service employees, which are hired on the basis of merit examinations and who keep their jobs when the administration changes. )
