The Army Career Assistance Program assists active-duty, Reserve and National Guard soldiers, civilians, and their family members in the transition from military to civilian life. The two main functions of this program are the Transition Assistance Office and the Job Assistance Center. The TAO prepares an Individual Transition Plan to assist the client with all available transition services and makes referrals based upon the client's needs and desires.
The TAO and the JAC help the client with the total job search process. The JAC conducts monthly seminars and workshops where the client learns about resume writing, translating military experience into civilian terminology, marketing and networking skills, how to dress and prepare for job interviews, job offers and salary negotiation, and other job search skills.
The JAC has a job announcement bulletin board and both a manual and an automated reference library made up of veteran's training and labor market information from each of the 50 states. The JAC offers automated Army Employer and Alumni Network, Defense Outplacement and Referral System, America's Job Bank, and executive search system entries.
