Qualifications and Eligibility

Like any employer, AFCS expects you to be "qualified" and "eligible" when you apply for a position. Why are these distinctions important?

Qualification is based on education and/or experience. As with any other employer, you will need to have certain educational and/or work experience in order to be qualified for a given position. For example, if you apply for a physician’s position, you will need to have completed medical school and fulfilled the related requirements. The kind of educational or experiential background needed is always delineated in the USAJobs announcement or social media job posting or advertising materials. Be sure you meet those expectations before you decide to apply.

Eligibility is based on Federal regulatory requirements that determine who can apply for specific jobs. Eligibility requirements are found within each USAJobs announcement and within DHA jobs posted to job boards and social media sites, as well as within advertising materials. It is critical that you review these eligibility requirements. If you do not meet them and you apply, you will be determined to be not qualified.

For additional information on this subject, please see the Air Force Civilian Employment Eligibility Guide.
