NASA's Recruitment Process has Changed!
Effective October 1, 2005, under a Federal-wide initiative called Recruitment One-Stop, NASA STARS began using new job search and application tools.
On October 1, we became fully integrated with the USAJOBS site, so that you may seamlessly create a resume, search for jobs, and apply on-line – all using links found on the pages you are using.
Below you will find a summary of the changes. For complete information, please review our updated Applicant Guide.
APPLICATION PROCESS AS OF OCTOBER 1, 2005
The process will be very similar to the one you used before October 1, and job announcements continue to provide information on submitting a hard copy application. To apply electronically:
1. Set up a USAJOBS account, where you may create as many as five USAJOBS resumes.
2. Go to USAJOBS (or use a link on NASAJOBS to go to the USAJOBS site) and search for NASA vacancies.
3. Once you’ve found a job for which you wish to apply, click the ‘Apply on Line’ button and select the USAJOBS resume you want to use.
4. Once you do that, you will be asked to complete the NASA supplemental information. Except for SES positions, which require narrative statements, this information is very brief and should only take you a few minutes to complete. You must finish and submit it, however, in order to have a complete application and receive consideration.
And that’s all there is to it!
SENIOR EXECUTIVE SERVICE APPLICATION PROCESS
As of October 1, we accept electronic applications, although we will continue to accept hard copy applications if you are unable to apply on-line. The process is virtually the same as for non-SES positions, except that you must complete narrative statements on your Executive Core Qualifications and Technical Qualifications. We encourage you to complete that information separately off-line, and ‘paste’ it into the on-line form. The SES announcements and the Applicant Guide contain complete information.
ACCESSING YOUR NASA STARS RESUME
Although you won’t be able to apply using your NASA STARS resume after October 1, resumes created on the NASA STARS builder will be available to copy and use for creating a USAJOBS resume or for other employment activities. This service is available as long as you had a NASA STARs account prior to October 1, 2005. The NASA STARS account web site provides detailed information on what to do. We encourage you to save your NASA STARS resume soon, as we will not have this feature permanently available.
APPLICANT EVALUATION AND REFERRAL PROCEDURES
These changes do not affect how NASA evaluates and refers applicants. We will continue to use Resumix software to assist in electronically rating and ranking your resume. For NASA employees, there are no changes in our internal competitive placement procedures.
