Palace Acquire (PAQ) Program

Palace Acquire (PAQ) program for those with or approaching a degree in Architecture or related discipline.
Civilian Air Force Architects are responsible for the planning, design, construction and maintenance of the Air Force’s largest weapon system —its installations.

This is not a military position. Civilian Architects are critical members of our team, providing the diverse expertise and leadership needed to secure our nation’s defense.

The Air Force is providing opportunities for full-time employment for recent and upcoming graduates. The PAQ program assigns you to an Air Force Installation and provides two years of formal and on-the-job training to expose you to all aspects of an Air Force career as an Architect. You will work shoulder to shoulder with current Architects and other professionals including military and civilians. You will make a real contribution to the mission of the United States Air Force (USAF) and gain invaluable real-world experience.
