Single staffing tool goes Air Force wide

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO – RANDOLPH, Texas — Beginning this summer, all Air Force civil service employees will have transitioned to a resume based system when seeking new positions for Air Force civilian vacancies worldwide.

In 2010, the Air Force Personnel Center announced the transition to a single staffing tool for all Air Force job seekers utilizing USA Staffing to post all job announcements on USAJobs.gov. The final implementation to the single staffing tool will transition Luke Air Force Base, Ariz., employees in late July.

USA Staffing is a web-based system that automates civilian employee recruitment, assessment, referral and notification processes. It generates vacancy announcements for appropriated fund civilian positions and posts them on the Air Force civilian careers website www.afciviliancareers.com and at USAJobs.gov. Additionally, USA Staffing accepts applications via Internet or fax; analyzes applicant qualifications; and notifies applicants of results.

The Air Force now requires all job candidates to submit a resume when applying for a job announcement posted on USAJobs. Once a job announcement closes, hiring managers receive copies of candidate resumes instead of copies of Air Force employee career briefs.

Having the ability to compare candidate resumes instead of career briefs helps hiring managers select the best qualified candidates for vacant positions within 15 days, Air Force Personnel Center officials said.

“The Air Force transition to the resume based system ensures the right people are placed in the right jobs, and to help agencies accomplish their mission while respecting the merit system principles and veterans preference.” said Nancy Tackett, an AFPC supervisory human resources specialist.

Job seekers who need help capturing their qualifications on a resume should visit an installation Airman and Family Readiness Center, which offers resume-building assistance.
