Luke’s civilian job openings listed online

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO – RANDOLPH, Texas — With Luke Air Force Base’s transition to the resume-based single staffing tool, all Air Force civilian employment opportunities are now listed on the USAJobs site, Air Force Personnel Center officials said today.

In 2010, AFPC announced that the Air Force would transition to a resume based system using a single staffing tool for all Air Force job seekers using USA Staffing to post job announcements on USAJobs.gov. Implementation occurred in stages, said Nancy Tackett, AFPC Human Resources Technical Operations Branch. Luke’s July 27 transition was the final stage.

USA Staffing is a web-based system that automates civilian employee recruitment, assessment, referral and notification processes, Tackett explained. It generates vacancy announcements for appropriated fund civilian positions and posts them on USAJobs and the Air Force civilian careers website at www.afciviliancareers.com.

“Hiring managers have 15 days from the time they receive candidate resumes to make their selection, so the resume process helps them meet that deadline,” she said.

The transition helps ensure the right people are hired for the right jobs based on qualifications while respecting merit system principles and veterans preference. Job seekers who need help capturing their qualifications on a resume can visit an installation Airman and Family Readiness Center for resume-building assistance.

For more information about civilian careers, go to USAJobs.gov or www.afciviliancareers.com. For information about other personnel issues, visit the myPers website at https://mypers.af.mil.
