Family Member Employment Assistance Program:
The Family Member Employment Assistance Program assists active-duty military family members, as well as reservists, retirees and civilians, on a space-available basis, to achieve their goals through employment, education or volunteerism. In 1985, Public Law 99-145 created the FMEAP. Section 806 of this act specifically addressed the need to increase employment opportunities for spouses. The military mobile lifestyle presents unique challenges to spouse employment due to frequent relocations. Additionally it is widely recognized that successful spouse employment assists in retaining the career active-duty service member.
For information regarding employment opportunities, view the Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton website.
Be sure to carry all employment records and information such as resumes, federal applications, a copy of permanent change of station orders for spouse preference, transcripts, certificates, licenses, etc. These will be needed when applying for employment at your new duty station.
This is a Department of Defense program that provides a hiring preference for military service personnel and their family members who have been affected by the downsizing of our military forces.
Preference for Transition Assistance Program participants applies to positions graded NF-3 and below and equivalent hourly paid positions. If you have been affected by the military downsizing, you may qualify for this special preference in the selection process.
