GUAM – The latest job openings in the Federal sector on Guam hint at what it takes to support community living for military families and facilitate Defense Department missions and U.S. federal programs, regulations and interests on island.

New jobs in the last two weeks signal the onset of back-to-school preparations, high patient volume at medical facilities and the community’s growing morale, welfare and recreation needs.

Employment opportunities have popped up at the island’s Department of Defense schools, which serve dependants of DoD military and civilian personnel, at the Naval Hospital in Agana Heights, one of only two hospitals on Guam, and at Naval Base Guam facilities for children’s programs, the library, hobby shops, pools and other recreational areas.

The life rhythm of Guam’s military, DoD and Federal Government communities is also evident in new jobs to load ships with subsistence and supplies, troubleshoot network and server systems at the Guam Remote Tracking Station, the Air Force’s satellite control center, police the island’s ports of entry, and handle and clear unexploded ordnance from military land to make way for new construction.
