Cuts Yes, Hiring Yes:

It may seem strange, but the Air Force is still in the hiring game even as it begins to shed some 40,000 personnel over the next three years. However, the gate is not wide open. The service needs new entrants with special talents and those willing to go into much-in-demand—and rugged—career fields like battlefield airmen and pararescue jumpers. Even Air Force Recruiting Service is hiring from within the Air Force, but the agency wants, in particular, Spanish speakers to serve as recruiters in areas like California, Florida, Texas, and—would you guess itMassachusetts.
