I am a member of the Individuals With Disabilities Recruitment Team at the
Naval Air Station, Patuxent River, Maryland. Our team focuses on diversity
recruitment - including individuals with disabilities to include intellectual,
physical, and psychiatric challenges.
Our special recruitment office utilizes special hiring authorities that open
the doors to a federal career without having to compete through a job
announcement. While we hire in many fields, most of our openings are in
computer science, mathematics, and engineering. And although these jobs are
with the Department of the Navy, the positions are in the civilian work force
and do not require enlistment into the U. S. Armed Forces.
While your students and graduates can apply through open job announcements on
USAJobs.gov, the special recruitment office can accept applications from
persons with disabilities at any time. Your student or graduate must submit a
resume, transcripts, and a Schedule A letter. The Schedule A letter should not
include a diagnosis. It need only identify whether the disability is
classified as psychiatric, intellectual, or severe physical. The Schedule A
letter is not shared with the hiring managers.
All application materials should be sent to
I am enthusiastic about the opportunities we have and welcome an opportunity to
share with you more about who we are and what we offer.
