Cadet Executive Staff takes office every June.  All other staff positions take office in June and December.
The application window usually opens 2 months before taking office.

A Staff Selection process is used to fill Cadet staff positions.  All Cadets will submit an application, letter of interest and resume.
Interviews will be offered to eligible candidates.

What is a CAP Resume?

A CAP Resume outlines your achievements and responsibilities  in CAP.
See CAPP 60-32 for technical document guidelines for a resume.

How does the Staff Selection Process work?

Once the application window has closed, interview slots will be assigned. Cadets will be contacted with an interview time slot. After all interviews are concluded, staff positions will be assigned and announced.

Who conducts the Staff Selection Interviews?

The Staff Selection Interview Board will minimally consist of the following:

  • Deputy Commander for Cadets
  • Cadet Commander
  • Cadet Executive Officer
  • Deputy Cadet Commander

The exception to the above is the Staff Selection Interview for Cadet Executive Staff. The Interview Board typically consists of:

  • Squadron Commander

  • Outgoing Cadet Commander

Other senior members may be asked to participate in the Staff Selection Interviews.


This process is subject to change at the direction of the Squadron Commander.
