Air Force Civilian Service seeks skilled employees

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

The Air Force Civilian Service held a job fair concentrated on skilled-trade candidates April 22-23.

The event focused on filling more than 300 skilled-labored Air Force positions in the San Antonio and surrounding areas, including Altus and Laughlin Air Force Bases, Texas.

“Without a coordinated team effort with our mission partners, these job fairs wouldn’t be possible,” said Mike Brosnan, Air Force’s Personnel Center Talent Acquisition chief. “When we prepare for a job fair of this magnitude, it’s important to have AFPC talent acquisition consultants, staffing and classification teams, unit human resources liaisons, servicing civilian personnel staff and hiring managers working together.”

The event was open to the public and pre-screened more than 50 candidates who were invited to interview for positions. Overall, the event garnered more than 250 applicants with tentative job offers given to more than 80 candidates on the spot.

The Joint Base San Antonio area still has more than 1,000 open positions to fill across various occupations, with skilled trades such as aircraft maintenance and civil engineering having the most.

AFCS plans on hosting more than 80 job fairs across the United States during fiscal year 2019 and anticipates adding more than 3,000 qualified civilians to the Air Force workforce.

“Civilian employees are critical to continuity and leadership, building a lethal and ready Air Force,” Brosnan said. “The AFCS team is ready to support installation hiring requirements in order to help achieve the Air Force mission.”
