Following the lead of several other federal agencies , the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has complied with the Presidential Initiative to upgrade its federal recruitment services and has integrated its staffing system with USAJOBS. According to the FAA Aviator site,
“On March 30th, AVIATOR was updated to be fully integrated with USAJOBS in order to make applying for future jobs easier. Because of this change, this site has significantly changed. When directly logging into the site with your username and password, you will only be able to check the status of your applications submitted prior to March 30th. You may no longer start new applications this way or access your profile information.
“To apply for a new position or to update an existing application on an open announcement, go to USAJOBS, set up an account (or login to an existing account) to create resumes and upload documents, find the job you wish to apply for and begin your application. Your information from USAJOBS will automatically be sent to the FAA.”
Applicants who applied for positions previously through AVIATOR will have until October 1st, 2012, to access their information. After this date, the site will be disabled, so it’s important you retrieve whatever data you need before then.
