How Civil Service Jobs are Filled

When filled through competitive procedures, civil service positions at MCRD Parris Island, Naval Dental Center Parris Island, 6th Marine Corps Recruiting District, Naval Hospital Beaufort, and the Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, are recruited for either through the Dept. of Navy RESUMIX system or through the U.S. Office of Personnel Management's Delegated Examining Unit (DEU) system.

Recruitment through Dept. Of Navy's
RESUMIX System for Applicants
with Civil Service "Status"

Recruitment through RESUMIX is almost always used when it is believed that there is a pool of eligible and qualified applicants who are already in the Federal civil service or who are eligible to be appointed to Federal civil service.

RESUMIX job applications must be submitted electronically via the following website:

All positions in the Beaufort SC Navy-Marine Corps Tri-Command are located in the DON SOUTHEAST region. With only rare exceptions, all vacancies are subject to Department of Defense Priority Placement Program (PPP).

The Civil Service Vacancy Listing can be accessed at any time at or from computers on the Parris Island LAN at
http://intranet click "Unit Pages", click "Civilian Human Resources, click "Job Vacancies".

RESUMIX Guidance

To ensure that you are considered for positions for which you may be interested, you MUST have an active RESUMIX resumé in the HRSC-SE database at all times! If you need help preparing or submitting your electronic RESUMIX resumé, it is recommended that you update your hardcopy resumé (SF-171 or equivalent) and find someone who is comfortable using the computer to help you complete the electronic resumé and submit it to HRSC-SE.

Be sure to designate the SPECIFIC POSITION OR JOB SERIES that you would like to be considered for on your RESUMIX resumé. To update the position series for which you are interested, you can either modify your RESUMIX resumé; OR, you can notify HRSC-SE of your interest in another position series (without modifying your RESUMIX resumé) using the "APPLY NOW" feature on the DON website (Be sure to click this button twice).

If you already have civil service status, go to the Jobs, Jobs, Jobs link on the website, click SE region, then enter the four-digit series of the position you're interested in. This should generate the open-continuous, Navy job announcement for the type of position you are interested in being considered for.

Be sure to show the LOWEST grade level (or pay rate) that you would be willing to accept, even if it is not the grade level that you would ideally like to have.

RESUMIX resumes are maintained in the HRSC-SE database for one year. Be sure to update your RESUMIX resumé at least once each year so that it is not deleted from the database!!
Review "key words" that may be helpful in preparing your RESUMIX resumé in the government-wide qualification standards for the position series you're interested in. These are located at

Additional guidance on how to complete and submit a RESUMIX resumé is found at (click Jobs, Jobs, Jobs).

Applicants who have active duty military service may have civil service "status" and be eligible for recruitment through RESUMIX under authorities in the Veterans' Readjustment Act (VRA) or the Veterans' Employment Opportunity Act (VEOA). Additional information can be found at
