2/6/2012 - FORT EUSTIS, Va. -- The Fort Eustis Civilian Personnel Advisory Center (CPAC) will begin using USA Staffing to fill vacant positions no later than March 31, 2012.
Army vacancy announcements will continue to be posted on both www.armycivilianservice.com and www.usajobs.gov. Jobs announced under USA Staffing will require some new application procedures and documents which will be described in the individual vacancy announcement.
There are steps that you as an employee or potential applicant can take now to simplify and expedite the process of applying for specific jobs under USA Staffing.
1. Create accounts under both USAJOBS and Application Manager. A USAJOBS account is needed to apply for all Army positions. You may already have a USAJOBS account. If not, go to www.usajobs.gov and click on "First Time Visitors" and then "Create an Account." An Application Manager account will be required when you apply for jobs under USA Staffing. Go to www.applicationmanager.gov and click on "Create an Account," then follow the directions.
2. Pre-position your resume. You may create and store up to five versions of your resume in your USAJOBS account. This allows you to tailor your resume content if you have significantly different types of experience/skills and apply for jobs in different occupational areas. Be sure that your resume clearly describes the duties you have performed and the level of your experience. Include the beginning and ending dates for each job and the hours worked if less than full time. If you include volunteer experience, be sure to include the amount of time spent and describe the work you did.
3. Upload supporting documents. Some documents are required to verify your eligibility for employment, veteran's preference, education and/or credentials. You can scan these documents, save them on your computer, and then upload them to your USAJOBS account by following the instructions under the "Upload a New Document" section. Once you correctly upload a document, it is available for use in all future applications.
4. Make sure your account always has your current contact information, especially your email address. Review and update your resume periodically so it is ready to use when you find a vacancy in which you are interested.
By pre-positioning your resume and supporting documents in your USAJOBS account, you will be ready to quickly respond when you see a vacancy that interests you. If your resume and supporting documents are loaded in your account, the only requirement to finalize your application package will be completion of the assessment questionnaire for the specific job you are applying for.
