eases hiring, application process

SAN ANTONIO — Air Force Services officials continue refining to make it easier for job seekers to apply and hiring managers to make their selections for nonappropriated fund vacancies Air Force wide.

The online job board advertises NAF vacancies at Air Force clubs, golf courses, child development centers, youth centers, bowling centers, outdoor recreation centers and many other NAF activities. There are currently more than 3,800 NAF jobs advertised worldwide.

Using the results of a hiring manager survey conducted in April, upgrades to the website were made in August to benefit applicants, hiring managers and NAF human resources specialists.

Bobbie Nugent, an Air Force Services Agency human resources specialist, said the greatest benefit for both applicants and hiring managers involves the time saved using the website.

“Hiring managers can more efficiently determine qualified applicants using a new side-by-side applicant comparison tool,” she said. “Additionally, applicant forms can be autogenerated based on information completed in an applicant’s profile.”

Other major enhancements include the ability for hiring managers to make multiple selections from the same announcement as well as immediately identify previously reviewed and qualified applicants. Applicants will also benefit from a standardized document format for uploading files.

“We consider the website a work in progress and will continue to request feedback from our many categories of users to make improvements to the hiring process and website,” Nugent said.

Unlike the nearly 150,000 federal civilian employees paid out of the federal appropriated fund budget, the 25,000 Air Force NAF employees are paid by money generated by NAF activities, such as Air Force clubs, golf courses and lodging. These facilities provide a community environment for Air Force families to live, work and play.
