3/28/2011 - ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- While most Air Force bases are using a streamlined employee recruitment process called the Air Force Single Staffing Tool, Robins is among 12 bases that have not made the switch. That will soon change.
Robins will implement SST in late April. Current civilian employees will then apply for internal openings at www.usajobs.gov. Previously, civilian employees applied for jobs through the Candidate Announcement Notification System.
The application process for USA Jobs requires applicants to submit a resume electronically. Employees are encouraged to begin developing a resume to apply for future job opportunities. The resume should highlight knowledge, skills and abilities based on previous and current employment.
To help job seekers whose skills in creating a resume may be rusty, the Airman and Family Readiness Center is offering free resume-writing classes at the Base Theater.
"A lot of older employees have never used USA Jobs, and many have never created a resume," said Dell Steplight, one of the teachers of the class. "If an employee wants to be competitive for promotion, he or she must become proficient in crafting resumes, and this will help."
There will be two classes a day on 12 separate days, beginning Monday (see schedule). Classes will run from 9 to 11:30 a.m., and again from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Participants do not need to sign up in advance for the class. For more information, call 468-1256.
Other bases which have continued recruitment under the self-nomination process via the AFPC Secure Civilian Employment website are Luke, Hurlburt Field, Arnold, Eglin, Brooks City-Base, Hanscom, Hill, Edwards, Kirtland, Tinker and Wright-Patterson. Eventually these bases will also move to the SST.
