The Family Employment Readiness Program is geared towards assisting Sailors and family members in finding meaningful employment. Career related workshops are open to military and their family who also have the option to meet one-on-one with one of our Work and Family Life Consultants.
Workshops and one-on-one assistance focus on a job search, career planning, resume writing, interview techniques, federal employment, and the use of social media. FFSC offers the following career related workshops:
Are you looking for work? Are you submitting your resume online and not getting any response? If you answered yes to either of these questions, consider registering for this workshop where you will learn the steps to creating an effective corporate resume and cover letter. Learn how to set yourself apart from the mainstream by incorporating key words, descriptors, adverbs, and quantifiers into your job descriptions. Find out what recruiters are and aren’t looking for and the best job search websites where people are finding the most jobs.
Want a competitive salary, great benefits, all Federal Holidays off (with pay), and the possibility of flex hours? Then you may want to consider working for a Federal agency. Federal employment requires crafting a Federal resume.
