RESUMIX and other
Electronic Federal Applications
What are Online Applications?
for Federal Government positions require on-line applications,
resume builders, or RESUMIX formats which are scanned into computer
databases. These on-line formats can be very restricting, and
if you are not computer-savvy, can also be very difficult to
do correctly - and if not done correctly, your application will
be rejected. Army Resumes has certified professional staff
who are experts in the requirements of how to apply for these
positions. Let our experts help you through this process to successfully
apply for these positions.

and applications are searched electronically for the key words
required for the position. If you do not include the right keywords,
your resume will not be one of those selected for further review
by the hiring authority. Once your resume is selected electronically,
it is then reviewed by the hiring authority manually - and compared
to all the others that were selected. Therefore, it is important
that the resume include all relevant keywords AND read well.
The restrictive nature of many of the on-line formats (limited
length for describing jobs and experience) makes this difficult.
The more restrictive, the more difficult this is. This is where
Army Resumes' experience can help. Call us today at (800) 471-9201

What are Online Application
Some of the
agencies that require many (if not most) applicants to use online
- US Army
The Army RESUMIX format is a highly restrictive 3-page
format. Resumes can be posted online using the Army Resume Builder.
In this format you also must include answers to all the KSA questions
in the RESUMIX - they are not separate answers. Sometimes, for
higher level positions, the Army RESUMIX is not used for Army
positions, but the RESUMIX format seems to be used for most Army
- US Navy
The Navy RESUMIX format is less restrictive than the Army format,
Navy RESUMIX allows 5 pages. In this format you also must include
answers to all the KSA questions in the RESUMIX - they are not
separate answers. Like the Army format, the Navy RESUMIX format
is used for most, but not all Navy postings.
- US Air Force
The Air Force RESUMIX format is also 5 pages, but has different
requirements than the Navy format. In this format you also must
include answers to all the KSA questions in the RESUMIX - they
are not separate answers. This format is used for only some positions,
generally those serviced by Randolph Air Force Base. Most positions
handled through Warner Robins Air Force Base and higher level
Air Force positions still use a regular Federal resume format.
- US Coast Guard
The US Coast Guard uses Avue Digital Services to produce online
resumes. This format is not as limiting as the Army, Navy, or
Air Force formats. KSAs are answered separately - up to 3000
characters each, in this format. Also, you will need to post
a word version of your Federal resume and KSAs.
- US Department of Commerce
The US Department of Commerce uses Commerce Opportunities On-Line
for some of their job openings. This system allows up to 8 jobs
to be entered, and will sometimes ask a series of questions.
The format allows up to 8 jobs. You can cut and paste from the
Federal Resume format to prepare these pages.
