AFMC to host virtual hiring event Published March 13, 2019 By Marisa Alia-Novobilski Air Force Materiel Command Public Affairs WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio (AFNS) -- The Air Force Materiel Command is scheduled to host an online, virtual hiring fair April 10, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. CST, to fill multiple noncompetitive and direct-hire authority positions across the enterprise. The event will provide an opportunity for hiring officials and qualified candidates to connect directly via an interactive, online platform to fill immediate, critical vacancies as well as future positions at AFMC headquarters and center locations across the U.S. “This event is one of a number of hiring events we have planned this year as part of our enterprise hiring effort,” said Marcae Riggs, AFMC Personnel Programs Branch chief. “However, it’s our first hiring fair to be held completely online. This event will give us the chance to recruit from a widespread, geographically dispersed pool of talent, ensuring the ‘best of the best’ have the opportunity to apply and be hired.” The virtual career fair will focus on positions that are covered by noncompetitive hiring authorities and can be filled quickly with qualified applicants with the required degrees or skill sets. Open positions include occupations such as aircraft maintenance, law enforcement and security, logistics, engineering, science, acquisition and contract management, cyber security and more. “We have immediate as well as future needs. We are working to build a repository of talent that we can draw from as openings occur,” Riggs said. Pre-event registration at the official event website, http://www.virtual2019.com/, is required, with a deadline of March 22. Applicants will need to upload documents that include resumes, official/unofficial transcripts and other documents, depending on the individual situation and job posting requirement. All resumes will be reviewed by hiring officials prior to the event and invitations to attend will be extended to a limited number of qualified candidates. While not all registrants will receive an event invitation, resumes will be maintained for potential future hiring needs.
