10/23/2009 - RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas (AFNS) -- Department of Defense civilian employees will now be referred to the hiring official along with current Air Force civilians for all permanent Air Force civilian positions.
Former Air Force employees who were realigned under the Army or Navy because of Base Realignment and Closure or joint basing initiatives will have an avenue to return to the Air Force with the policy change, said Deborah Keating, the Air Force Personnel Center's program oversight manager for civilian hiring.
"Making all Air Force jobs available to DOD civilian employees will give them greater opportunities for joint experience and interagency assignments," Ms. Keating said.
The change comes as the Air Force is increasing the number of available civilian jobs. Air Force civilian jobs are expected to increase by approximately 4,500 civilian positions in fiscal 2010 including about 900 acquisition personnel.
