JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO – RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) — Air Force Personnel Center human resources officials have expanded a self-service initiative allowing civilians to request updates to their personnel records online.

Employees can now request updates for résumés, name changes, veterans’ preference for reduction in force, awards, education, training, certification and licensure.

The initiative empowers employees by eliminating the need for them to contact their local civilian personnel office to accomplish these updates. These online initiatives also make it easier for former military members to update information to their civilian employee record.

“This one-stop web location allows Air Force civilians to review their records and to submit change requests online, all without leaving their office,” said Clara Howard, an AFPC human resources specialist. “More importantly, we will send civilians notifications when the updates have been completed.”

One popular self-service request is the “Résumé Update” application, which allows an employee to submit a comprehensive résumé for filing in their electronic official personnel file. The résumé can be used for many human resources purposes, such as RIF, worker’s compensation or management directed reassignments; all without having to go back to the employee and requesting additional information, officials said.

It’s important to note, consideration for job vacancies still requires the employee to submit their résumé and associated documents to the specific job announcement on www.USAJOBS.gov.
