The 90th Missile Wing opened its gates to the local public for a job fair at the Trails End on F.E. Warren Air Force Base, April 5, 2023.

More than 110 people from the local community attended the job fair, which highlighted many of the career fields on base, including administrative roles, social workers, telecommunication specialists and welders, among many others, with the goal of filling as many of the 115 total position vacancies on base as possible.

Our goal with hosting a job fair, as well as attending job fairs within the community, is to highlight the careers available, everything from administrative and technical to professional, at F. E. Warren that most of the population don't realize even exist,” said Tafoya. “We hope to attract as many new employees as possible.”

Job fairs are an uncommon occurrence on base, but given the number of vacant positions, the decision was made to open the doors to the public and help do away with some incorrect preconceived ideas of federal civilian service.

“Job fairs give us the ability to educate the general public about the civilian career opportunities available within the federal government, as the Air Force alone employs approximately 180,000

civilians who support and sustain the mission of the Air Force with the same dedication as those in uniform,” said Tafoya. “Many people are unaware of these opportunities and immediately associate federal service with military service.”

Several units noted that they received several resumes and interest from qualified candidates through the job fair.

“With the resumes I received today, I can very likely fill two of the three open positions I have,” said Henry Winford, who was at the job fair representing the Communications Squadron.

Though it is too early to tell how many positions may be filled due to the job fair, hiring officials were positive in what they had to say about its outcomes.

"Several of the representatives of units looking to fill positions came away optimistic that they might fill multiple vacancies," said Tafoya. "We can't say for sure yet, but we think we may be able to fill several of these slots that will help the total force focus on the mission at hand."
