    How do you advertise jobs to guys who are getting out??

    Advertisements
    Oh all knowing MSOS ladies...I know that if there is an answer to this question, one of you lovely ladies will have it

    My Aunt has a crap ton of internship spots to fill at her company...she works for a very large tech firm. She would prefer to fill them with guys who are getting out of the military. Is there like a military equivalent of a college placement office or something that she could call and tell about the internship opportunities so that they can get it out to guys that would qualify?

    DH is out in the field so he is no help. go figure!

    Thank you! Do you know if there is anything within the military? I have heard that when you are getting out there are people who will help you put together a resume or something...do they also help with finding jobs/internships?

    The Navy (not sure about other branches) requires you go to a week long class (TAP - Transition Assistance Program), but as of a year or so ago, they stopped allowing business recruiters to present during TAP.

    Fleet and Family Service (again, I don't know the equivalent for the other branches) might be a good connection. They're the ones who will help you write a resume, they might help make connections too.

    Is she near a specific installation by chance? I know the army has an ACAP office at every post that helps with transitioning soldiers. And at our last place the employment readiness office dealt with both spouses and soldiers.

    There are actually headhunting and employment firms that only deal with former military. Can't remember the names though.
    If you want my opinion on your relationship or life issues, just ask Villanelle!

    ACAP. And DH just went through it. Maybe he just got a shitty instructor but his class was horrible. They give a generic list if employers that hire vets like Lowes in the paperwork and tell you to go to the VA. That might be a good place for her to check.

    DH used his friends résumé that ETS'ed last year and got a reallllllly good job with it. Like excellent job and was highly recruited for jobs with this résumé. And the ACAP lady told him it was the worst résumé she had seen.
