Employment Readiness

Program (ERP)

Employment Readiness Program (ERP) serves

family members, spouses of relocating DoD civilian

employees, active duty Soldiers and those Soldiers

and civilians who are transitioning from government

service. ERP provides employment assistance and

placement to match the right skill set with the right

job. Currently there is a direct correlation between

spousal areas of interest for employment and the work

force priorities within the Central Flint Hills Region,

particularly in the areas of health care and

administrative and clerical work. ERP continues to

move forward toward its goal of being the premiere

headhunter organization for our Family members.

ERP provides the following services:

• Resume assistance

• Employment information for employees and

• Job fairs
