Do I need a resume?
Yes. You should always maintain a current resume, but when you apply for civilian jobs with the Air Force Civilian Service (AFCS), you will be able to submit your information through something called the USAJOBS Resume Builder, when instructed to do so. You’ll have the chance to submit all the same information contained in your current resume, but by using the Resume Builder all candidates use the same format which facilitates the evaluation process.
If all resumes go into the same format, how will I stand out?
The same rules apply to the USAJOBS Resume Builder content as they would with a traditional resume. To stand out, choose the right words, be concise, quantify, and don’t forget what we like to call “DUH” items. You’ll read more about these items below.
