Like any employer, Fairchild Civilian Careers 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.
When you visit USAJOBS.gov, the first step is to create a profile so that you can save jobs, save and automate job searches, and manage everything you need to complete your application, including resumes and required documents.
