There are numerous AFCS jobs available across the country and around the world.
All AFCS job opportunities are also listed on the Federal Government’s official one-stop source for Federal jobs and employment information, USAJOBS. Access AFCS job opportunities at airforce.usajobs.gov.
Like any employer, AFCS expects you to be “qualified” when you apply for a position, but unlike some employers, you must also be “eligible.” What’s the difference? It’s actually pretty simple.
“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 want a job as a doctor, you need to have completed medical school and fulfilled the related requirements. The kinds of background needed are always clearly detailed in the Job Opportunity Announcement listed at airforce.usajobs.gov. Be sure you meet those expectations before you decide to apply.
However, even if you are completely “qualified” for a job, you may not actually be “eligible.” In the Federal jobs environment, “eligibility” refers to Federal regulatory requirements that determine who can apply for specific jobs.
Each AFCS Job Opportunity Announcement will carefully spell out who is eligible to apply in the “Who May Apply” section. Further details on who may apply can be found in the “Other Information” and “How to Apply” sections. It is very important to review these requirements carefully. If you do not meet the requirements listed, you may not apply for the job.
For additional information on this subject please review the "Air Force Civilian Employment Eligibility Guide.""
AFCS jobs are categorized as entry, mid, and senior levels, and are associated with different qualifications and pay grade levels. And, there are special categories of job opportunities, including jobs for students and recent graduates, veterans, military spouses, and individuals with disabilities.
Each AFCS position (Job Opportunity Announcement) will provide detailed information about job qualifications, duties, salary, location, benefits, and security requirements. These will help you determine if your interests, education, and professional background make you a candidate who qualifies for the job.
Follow the instructions in the “How to Apply” section of each Job Opportunity Announcement. Instructions will guide you through the application process, providing you detailed information on the questions that must be addressed, and forms and format that must be used to present your resume and qualifications for the job.
