  • No UPT hiring positions?

    Posted by SkyDaddy on July 1, 2024 at 5:51 pm

    Just a few months ago MilRecruiter and BogiDope had a large variety of UPT fighter positions open, but looking lately there is not a single slot open.

    a few questions:

    Is this is normal and I just missed all the summer hiring?

    When is the next hiring season?

    Should I send my application to the units anyway, or wait until they repost UPT slots?

      This is specific to fighters only and guard slots.

    Florida, Hawaii, South Dakota, California, Oregon, Louisiana, and New Jersey have all had UPT hiring events in the past few months. I’ve heard Idaho may have one later this Summer. Often there’s a late Spring / early Summer hiring window followed by an Autumn / Winter window. There’s no predictable schedule for these things though. Especially now, due to UPT delays for fighter candidates caused by T-38 / T-7 issues. Just keep an eye out, don’t be afraid to reach out to units and ask for more info.

      good info!

      looks like I barely missed summer hiring, bummer. Silver lining, I was getting worried that training was being universally shut down due to the trainer issues. a few units got back to me and said they’re suspending UPT for the time until several issues get resolved..

      Just out of curiosity, was Hawaii published on Mil recruiter?

        Hawaii was not published on Milrecruiter; I found out about the opportunity by emailing their recruitment office a few months before the hiring window opened

    I’ll just jump on this thread and ask; has anyone in training for the rescue HH-60’s seen or heard of major delays in the whiskey training pipeline?

    Awesome thread here guys! @blueingreen you nailed it when it comes to trying to predict these things. There’s no true formula… Keep grinding and reaching out to units regularly. There are definitely units (to include Hawaii) that often keep there hiring boards close to the vest.

    The thought process from the unit perspective is that if you want the job bad enough you will put in the effort to find out about the board. Don’t miss opportunities by leaving stones unturned!
