Berry: USAJOBS 3.0 nearly live
The Office of Personnel Management has nearly completed an 18-month overhaul of the federal government's most prominent employee application website, USAJOBS.
In prepared remarks (.pdf) delivered Oct. 11 to an industry conference held in Washington, D.C., OPM Director John Berry said USAJOBS 3.0, once finished, will be a migration from a contractor-run system to an in-house one based on open architecture and common data standards.
OPM took the system offline for applications the afternoon of Oct. 5 for the upgrade, with full functionality expected to be restored by Oct. 12. The new system will look like the old one, but underneath, among the expected improvements to the new system will be improved resume search for human capital officers and better integration with back-end talent acquisition systems.
