Employment Readiness and Transition Assistance programs are geared towards assisting Sailors and family members finding meaning employment. Sailors and their family members can come in and sit with one of our Work and Family Life Consultants (WLFC) or attend our workshops.
One-on-one assistance or workshops addresses launching a job search, career planning, resume writing, interview techniques, federal employment information, self-assessments, goal setting, and vocational tests.
FFSC workshops include Finding Federal Employment, Winning Interview Techniques, Owning Your Own Business, and Resume Writing.
The FFSC Career Centers offer computers, the internet, and job postings for your use.
Under the new policy, agencies can appoint military spouses to temporary, term or permanent positions in the civil service, OPM said. Military spouses must be currently married to an active or injured service member at the time the agencies make their appointments.
