Air Force Civilian Service website aids job seekers
RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas — Jobseekers unfamiliar with civilian employment opportunities within the Air Force now have a new online resource that defines the numerous career fields and outlines many of the benefits of being a federal employee.
The site, http://www.afciviliancareers.com, contains practical information for those interested in applying for a federal job within the Air Force Civilian Service, including various hiring authorities, base locations, career field descriptions, employee benefits and application procedures.
“The Air Force has always relied on the civilian workforce to meet the mission. With new organizations standing up and an overall net gain in civilian positions, we hope more people will look at all the benefits we have to offer and consider applying with us,” said Michelle LoweSolis, the director of civilian force integration at the Air Force Personnel Center.
One of the highlights of the website is a job match machine. By entering educational background or specific skills, the job match machine will generate a list of possible career choices.
The site also has a resume coach that walks users through some of the most frequently asked questions: How do I get my resume to stand out? Do veterans or current federal employees have different application procedures? What should college graduates include on their resumes?
Additionally, the site features a faster-loading HTML version, or the more interactive Flash version, along with special downloads and video clips.
When visitors are ready to search for an AFCS job, clicking the “apply now” button on the home page will give them access to Air Force jobs listed on USAJOBS.gov. There, they can build resumes, search for job vacancies, and submit their applications.
