The Employment Readiness Program (ERP) provides information and referral services in the areas of employment, education, training, career development and volunteer opportunities that will assist clients to identify and develop personal and professional skills that will give them the "competitive edge" needed to secure future employment.
The ERP office provides a full range of employment related services and assistance to family members of active duty service members, retirees and federal employees (appropriated and Non-Appropriated).
Employment Readiness is not a job placement service; however they will provide job search training, and a professional Job Search Trainer to help identify skills and assist you every step of the way during your job search. This program will also give you valuable access to references on the national job market and be able to attend seminars and workshops on job search strategies, interview skills, salary negotiation, and more.
