Career opportunities available for those up to the challenge

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO – RANDOLPH, Texas — Interesting career opportunities exist for enlisted Airmen who are ready for new challenges and have a desire to take their careers in a whole new direction, said Technical Sgt. Jessica Cobb, Air Force Personnel Center Mission Support/Joint Department Assignments branch.

“There are many great opportunities with unique and rewarding work environments where Airmen will gain a broader perspective of how the Air Force fits into the big picture,” she said. “There are usually 60 or 70 jobs listed and they vary by career field, experience levels and rank, so Equal Plus may have something right up your alley.”

“Special duty positions run the gamut from instructor to recruiter, but we’re really focused on highlighting the DOD assignments,” Cobb said. “Most of those positions are in D.C., but the Office of the Secretary of Defense has some overseas positions, too, so that’s a possibility.”

Finding the perfect position starts with a visit to the Air Force secure site, accessible on the Air Force Portal. From there, go to the Assignment Management System and select the Equal Plus link.

“It’s pretty simple, and most Airmen are already familiar with AMS. Even if you’re not, though, you just follow the instructions on the site and use the quick links to navigate,” said Cobb.

“The Air Force is only one piece of a much larger picture,” she said. “Having the opportunity to use your skills at the DOD level will improve your understanding of the Air Force role and how the services work with many other agencies to achieve national security goals.”
