WIESBADEN, Germany — Air Force civilians will be required to follow new procedures when applying for some jobs at air bases in Europe and two air bases in Texas and South Korea.

Starting as early as mid-February, those applicants should apply through USAJOBS, the job site of the federal government, according to a news release issued by the Air Force Personnel Center.

The change affects civilian employees applying for jobs at any of the Air Force bases in Europe, Goodfellow Air Force Base, near San Angelo, Texas, and Osan Air Base in South Korea. It applies only to jobs staffed through the Air Force Personnel Center, not through other Air Force agencies.

The USAJOBS site allows applicants to create and save up to five resumes and select which one they want to submit online for a particular job.

The personnel center will screen applicants based on resumes instead of career briefs and job-experience skill codes, officials say. Applicants can track when their application is received, when it’s being assessed, and if it’s referred to an official making the selection.

Air Force employees can find jobs open to them by looking for the phrase "Current Permanent Air Force Employee" on jobs advertised in USAJOBS.

USAJOBS can be accessed by computer or smart phone using a username and password. For more information, employees can call the Air Force Total Force Service Center at (800) 525-0102.

Employees currently apply for jobs through the Air Force Civilian Employment Self-Nomination Application found on the personnel center’s Web site.
