JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) --

The Air Force Civilian Service’s Talent Acquisition Division at the Air Force’s Personnel Center hosted an online virtual hiring event April 10 supporting Air Force Materiel Command’s recruiting efforts.

Although virtual hiring events aren’t new for the AFPC Talent Acquisition team, the platform for this event is new to the Air Force and the scale of the candidate pool is the largest to date.

“Our team worked with the Office of Personnel Management to use their established platform, and we had the flexibility to provide input specific to Air Force requirements,” said Lakisha Robertson, AFPC talent acquisition consultant.

The innovative platform is designed to look and feel as if someone is walking into an actual office for an interview.

More than 1,700 pre-screened candidates were invited to participate in the event using a unique link that allowed them to engage with recruiters and selecting officials.

When candidates logged in, they were greeted by an AFCS consultant and an AFMC human resource specialist who asked them about the career field or position that interested them, and then “walked” them to one of the virtual booths to chat with a career field subject matter expert. The SME then recommended candidates for a phone interview with a selecting official. Selecting officials contacted candidates outside of the virtual platform to interview for non-competitive and direct-hire authority positions across AFMC.

AFPC teamed with AFMC hiring authorities to fill nearly 400 vacancies with well-qualified individuals.

“The hiring process is a coordinated effort between AFPC, major command staffing and classification teams, hiring officials, TA consultants, human resources liaisons, servicing civilian personnel officers and pre-employment teams,” Robertson said. “This is an innovative, cost-saving way for the Air Force to ensure workforce readiness. These types of recruiting events help us find highly-qualified civilian Airmen to fill critical positions across the Air Force and who want to be part of our Air Force family.”

Previously, AFPC hosted several smaller virtual events and plans to conduct more in the future, in addition to participating in traditional hiring events across the country.

In fiscal year 2018, AFPC’s Talent Acquisition team hired more than 2,350 civilians for positions across the Air Force.
