USAJOBS site adds resume function for applicants

BY TONY LEE ORR | GCN STAFF

Officials at the Office of Personnel Management are using the Web to help streamline application procedures.

The agency's USAJOBS federal employment information system, at www.usajobs.opm.gov, now has a resume feature that allows individuals to create, save, update, print and even submit resumes online. The system contains nearly 100,000 resumes (see story, Page 22).

Applicants can use this feature to create a resume and then print it for mailing, or, in many cases, they can submit them online to the hiring agencies.

As a one-stop shopping service for agency vacancy announcements and employment information, USAJOBS has significantly simplified the federal hiring process, the spokesman said. The number of job postings has steadily increased over the last few years, to nearly 15,000 on any given day last year, the spokesman said.

A search function for information technology occupations will be added to the system next month, making the job hunting process much easier for the job seeker. It will list four occupational series'computer specialist, communications management, computer engineer and computer scientist'and any other jobs identified by the hiring agency as IT positions.
