In said advertisement, is the town of Dulce and the base mentioned explicitly? I'm sure an advertisement wouldn't give too much away in regards to
the actual nature of the base, but if the town of Dulce is named it speaks volumes for the validity of this entire "Dulce Mythology" that I've been
hearing of my entire life.
They are not listed online, and are typically circulated internally among qualified applicants. We are not given copies but are allowed to view them
in a binder that is locked away in a heavy duty safe, filing cabinet, or a vaulted room. I don't remember exactly all the info on the listings, but
this is an example of the info I saw. The sheet it was on had an AAFES header on very thin paper with employment contact info, usually an HR person,
and there was also a watermark that said NSA. The pages were slid into those plastic sheet holders in these binders. The info was printed in black
and white and was sometimes presented into tables while other times in list form.

There aren't very many openings for jobs like this, as the sheet that I saw the Dulce, NM one on only had a few other listings, I believe there was
one in Alaska, and another overseas. Only those who were qualified for the jobs knew about the list.
Typically if a site requires an AAFES type facility it would probably need a decent number of employees, I don't know what the official policy is,
but I would assume they wouldn't have an AAFES store for a few dozen folks, as it would have to be worth their while.
In all, from what I hear, it is a pretty cushy job, and the pay is great, but it is still considered a hardship assignment due to the high security
and restricted mobility. I always wanted to take one, but making time for it is the hardest part, especially if you have family, as you will be
locked away from the world for quite some time.
And no, I never saw any listings for anything Off-World.
Hope this is helpful.
