Employment assistance

The A&FRC offers employment assistance through the Employment Assistance Program (EAP). The EAP was established to provide information, assistance and training to applicants enabling them to enter or re-enter the job market by giving directions on how and where to look for employment.

The EAP offers a free service to applicants and employers. Military spouses are a tremendous asset in business and volunteer work. They have a large degree of sophistication and flexibility due to travel and work experience. The talent, education, and experience levels vary from eager to learn volunteers to efficient managers.

The A&FRC can assist with:

  • Career counseling and advising
  • Resume/Application review and feedback
  • Educational information
  • Job leads on and off base

Services are available to all active duty and retired personnel, their spouses and family members, and DoD civilians.

Seminars, Workshops & Individual Appointments

Local Job Market Orientation: Individual assistance provides an overview of the area job market and information on positions that are currently open in the community and on base.

Federal Job Search: Individual assistance provides an overview of jobs in the federal government. Information on various hiring agencies is discussed along with procedures for applying for positions.

Resumes: Writing a resume is an in-depth process through which an individual examines his or her career goals, work history, and personal attributes. Individuals will gain a better understanding of the role of the resume in the employment process. They will also learn to create an effective resume and about various formats for this document. Classes for federal and civilian resumes are held monthly.

Interviewing Skills: The job interview is the key that can unlock the door to employment. Answering an interviewer’s questions with good, solid responses is important. Additionally, the individual interested in doing well should know how to prepare for an interview, how to create a good appearance, and how to follow-up on an interview. Interview workshops are held monthly.
