Start Your Career with AFTC Today
The application process for federal employment can be more arduous than applying for work in the private sector. That’s why we’ve put together a step-by-step overview of what you can expect.
A Few Things to Keep in Mind
- Use the Search Jobs feature to find jobs at any AFTC location. Search by the job category, location or both.
- Jobs at AFTC may appear as Air Force Materiel Command (under “Agency”), rather than Air Force Test Center. AFTC is a part of AFMC, so do not be alarmed when you see their name on the job description.
- Some positions require you to apply online, while others require that you submit an application via email or mail.
- Carefully follow the information on the “How to Apply” section of each job announcement. It will tell you how and where to apply and what additional documents you might need to provide with your application (e.g., college transcripts, licenses, certificates, training documents, transition paperwork, etc.).
- Once you click Apply there are several steps you must complete in order to properly submit an application. The available links will walk you through those steps, which include:
- Creating a resume/account with the USAJOBS Resume Builder
- Completing the application on the Application Manager site (the system will guide you through)
- Keep a copy of the job description, including the Job Announcement Number and entire application package for your records.
- To check the status of your application, log in to your USAJOBS account.
- Job postings are open from a few days to six months so check the site frequently for new announcements.
