USAJOBS October upgrade to affect job seekers
September 27, 2011
RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas (AFNS) -- Job seekers will notice changes to the USAJOBS website in mid-October, including stronger security procedures, elimination of unnecessary applicant profile questions, and improved search filters, Office of Personnel Management officials said.
Applicants will not have to create new USAJOBS accounts, but will need to create new passwords when logging in after the upgrade. Anyone who has a USAJOBS account will not need to resubmit their resumes and supporting documents after the transition. To simplify that process, applicants should log in before Oct. 1 to establish three security questions.
"In addition to stronger security measures, users will find the job search function is more intuitive," said Nancy Tackett, an Air Force Personnel Center human resources specialist. "That means that job searches will allow applicants to focus on specific search terms, saving applicants time by quickly targeting relevant job openings."
