The Recruitment Assistance Division (RAD) is the Department of Defense's (DOD) distinctive leader in promoting civilian employment and career opportunities to the Nation's public. We work in the recognition that our successful efforts directly support our warfighters.

RAD serves as the centralized focal point for marketing DOD-wide civilian employment opportunities. RAD provides advice and assistance to the general public; develops and maintains relationships with universities, professional groups, and other organizations; and facilitates a DOD Recruiter's Consortium to leverage resources and promote a DOD corporate branding identity.
