Can you re-target your keywords right after you submit for the first job, or do you have to wait for the first job to completely close the announcement before changing the resume? At what point do the HR folks download your resume for the position you apply for? I have two jobs that I would like to submit for, with a separation in closing dates by about three days.
Thanks in advance.. That's a great question! I'll be interested in the answer myself. Now there is another for a total of three jobs that I would like to apply for?? Any thoughts on the above question?? I've googled the heck out of this, and can't find a good answer Resumix is a terrible system for both the applicant and selecting official. As a selector, Resumix did not provide the information needed,and as a somewhat automated system, good candidates were eliminated.
I was aware of superb candidates that did not make the cut, and had to ask for an extended referral list instead of re-advertising. As an applicant I could not provide information relevant to the position I was interested in. Resumix is the name of the software program that HR employees in DOD use to create referral lists for open positions.
Job applicants don't actually use Resumix at all. They use a resume builder that their agency provides. I can only speak for DFAS here, but when you save a resume in the DFAS resume builder, it updates overnight in an Oracle database that houses all of the resumes that can then be queried by Resumix.
When the HR specialist is determining qualifications for the position, he will enter Resumix and be able to view the resume that you have uploaded as of last night. He cannot see previous resumes that you have saved. So the HR specialist sees one and only one resume until you update it. You cannot link a particular resume to a specific job you applied for.
For instance, let's say you applied for three jobs and you saved a customized resume on the same date that you applied. Thus, you could easily be found not qualified for the engineering and accounting job. I have heard that in the Army's version used by CPOL, it will take a "snap shot" of your resume once you submit your resume through the resume builder, and then you can modify it and submit again, say 30 minutes later with an updated resume to a different job, and it will take a snapshot of the second resume I emailed last week asking: "Once I submit my self-nomination, at what point does the system submit my active resume?
Each time you submit a resume the current resume overrides the previous resume. According to Military. That said, the Army officials advised to create profiles for both accounts for faster job application. This is due to the main difference between it and CPOL in terms of processing federal applications.
CPOL was a Resumix System where the recruiters searched for the best qualified candidates using keywords and keyword phrases on their resumes. On the other hand, USAJOBS is a human system which involves recruiters reading the resumes without putting too much premium on presence or absence of relevant keywords.
Applying for civilian army post entails completion of the requirements in resume builder, application manager, and test. The exam includes questions related to your target job post. Aside from those, you must also attach your tailored cover letter.
Failure to complete these requests may defer your army civilian service application. Unlike in CPOL resume builder where you can only write 12, characters, USA Jobs allows you to add 5, characters for each block of work experience. This allows you to be more detailed in your skills and feats. As a result, resumes in USA Jobs could stretch up to pages long. You can check the job roles or vacancy announcements to get a hint of vital keywords. With the latest software technology, the hiring staff can find job applicants with skills that match open job prospects.

We recommend small paragraphs focusing on specific skills with Accomplishments. The KSAs in the announcement should be covered in the resume. Keywords are still important — for the human resources specialist readers. The HR specialist review was done by keywords with the Resumix system. The HR specialist and supervisor would agree on 5 to 7 keywords to "pull" the best qualified candidates. The applicant had to show minimum qualifications and have the keywords in order to get referred. You should give yourself all the credit that you can on the questionnaire.

The USA Staffing is not an automated keyword-based system. Resumes are actually read by human resource specialists. It's a recruitment tool that's used to staff federal civilian employee positions and one of the main reason that we're switching over to USA Staffing is to align with all the other Department of Defense agencies and it meets the presidential hiring reform," said Tricia Tyson, a human resource specialist at the Fort Bragg Civilian Personnel Advisory Center.
Those are the three major reasons behind it. Tyson said there were some drawbacks with Resumix, such as the use of what she called "buzz words" that employees felt were not fair. However, the entire Army is expected to complete the implementation process in April.
According to Joanna Elliot, human resource specialist, the USA Staffing program is not new to a few units on Fort Bragg, as the program has been piloted for applicants to the Joint Special Operations Command and Special Operations Training facility for the past two years. Elliot explained that applicants are now required to have all of their supporting documents to upload into the system.
They also have to answer questions instead of the old way of just self-nominating themselves for a position. Tyson explained that ANSWER, a program that currently gives applicants access to their submitted applications and other information, will remain available for at least the next year.
