BAE Systems

Dr. Hagen,
 
BAE Systems has 8 Co-Op positions open…i.e., this is a great opportunity for WSU to set up student(s) with an Embedded Career Pathway (or whatever you decide to call it).  Do you have recommendations of students in your programs?  If you want to give them this information, give me their names or have me meet with them, or send me student resumes and I can create a meeting with the students and BAE directly, we can navigate this whatever way you think best.  I just want to make sure I know which students pursue so we can track.  
 
Will you let me know how you’d like to move forward and what you need from me?  This is a really great opportunity to drive our process forward.
 
Thanks so much!
Melissa

and SCIENTISTS in order to fill dozens of vacancies in the next 90 days.
Attached is information about an INVITATION-ONLY interview session on
Wednesday, 3 December at the Hill Aerospace Museum.  The general public is
not invited - only those ENGINEER and SCIENTIST candidates who submit a
resume and are pre-vetted for eligibility will be issued a personal
invitation.

This interviewing event is for those seeking full-time, permanent employment
as ENGINEERS or SCIENTISTS within the next six months.  Students graduating
in Spring of 2015 should definitely apply, as we can make conditional offers

Electrical/Electronics Engineer 
- Computer Scientist
- Computer Engineer 
- Aerospace Engineer
- Mechanical Engineer
- General (Multi-Disciplinary) Engineer

HOW TO FIND FEDERAL JOB OPPORTUNITIES
If you are interested in working as a civilian employee at Hill AFB or elsewhere in the federal government, you can find opportunities at http://www.usajobs.gov
1.  In the “Where” block, enter your home town and state (or the city/state where you are willing to relocate).  You can enter Hill AFB if you want to see all of the jobs open within 20 miles of Hill.
2.  Click on the blue “Search” key.
3.  A list will appear of federal jobs available within a 20 mile radius of the location you selected.  (You may adjust the radius to refine your search.) There will likely be several pages of announcements. 
 
HILL AFB CAN ACCEPT RESUMES DIRECTLY FOR ENGINEERS AND SCIENTISTS
Because there is a critical shortage of engineers, computer scientists and other types of scientists in the DoD,  Hill AFB is permitted to accept resumes directly for these positions.  Hill recruits for positions it manages in several locations, including Utah, Arizona, Texas, Colorado, Okinawa and other small Air Force Bases.
 
If you have a BS degree in engineering, computer science or another scientific field (sorry, an engineering technology degree is not acceptable in the Air Force) you may submit your resume directly to Hill AFB and you DO NOT need to apply on USAJOBS to be considered for science and engineering positions at Hill.
 
Contact Joyce Peters at joyce.peters@us.af.mil for more information.  She will ask you to send your resume and a copy of your unofficial transcripts, and will help you understand the steps in the federal civilian recruitment and hiring process. She can also help connect you with recruiters in Dayton OH, Oklahoma City, Warner-Robins GA, and other locations around the country who can accept scientist and engineer resumes directly for vacancies at their installations.
 
HOW TO APPLY FOR MOST OTHER FEDERAL POSITIONS
While Hill AFB can accept resumes directly for engineer and scientist positions, most occupations (e.g., trades and crafts, engineering technicians, quality control, etc.) require you to apply to a vacancy announcement on USAJOBS.
1.  Using the search method above, select an announcement that interests you.
2.  Review the “Qualifications and Evaluations” section of the job announcement to see if you qualify.
3.  To apply for the job, follow the instructions in the “How to Apply” section of the vacancy announcement very carefully.  (NOTE: Vacancy announcements drop from USAJOBS immediately after the closing date, so you will want to keep a copy for future reference.) 
 
TYPES OF WORK PERFORMED AT HILL AFB
Most technical jobs currently open at Hill are in the Ogden Air Logistics Complex.
