If you, or someone you know, is interested in a job — and possibly a career — in child care, a unique opportunity for employment is just about a month away.

Navy Child and Youth Programs (CYP) will hold a hiring fair on Wednesday, Jan. 18, 2017 at a location to be announced soon.

CYP will be offering full time, part time and flexible direct care positions on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam and Pacific Missile Range Barking Sands in Kauai for applicants ages 18 and older, in all levels of education. The hiring fair is unique in that qualified applicants could receive job offers that same day.

CYP holds all ages of care between 6 weeks old to 18 years at all CYP facilities including eight child development centers, two school aged care facilities, teen center and youth sports and fitness facilities.

Various work schedules will be available including weekends, nights and special events. Benefits of joining CYP include built-in training opportunities for career advancement, competitive wages, guaranteed transfer to other location with permanent change of station (PCS) move (military spouses), and access to many base facilities and activities.

Interested applicants must bring necessary forms including an application form, resume, photo ID card, Social Security card, certifications (such as a CPR certificate), high school diploma or college transcripts, three references or letters of recommendation (two professional, one personal), shot records, bank account and routing numbers for direct deposit.

Qualifications screening will be held at the fair, including interviews, NAF (Non-Appropriated Funds) Human Resources orientation, and pre-drug and health screening which will be held on-site to determine qualified applicants.

Applicants with Veterans Preference (VP) and Military Spousal Employment Preference (MSEP) can get a head start as early as 9 a.m. Interested VP applicants must provide a copy of page four of the DD-214 with all other paperwork.

MSEP applicants must provide the Military Spouse Employment Preference Request form with a copy of Spouse’s PCS orders.

All other applicants are welcome from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
