What is the Employment Readiness Program?

ACS helps soldiers and DA civilians, and their family members throughout the entire Military Life Cycle, recruitment through retirement. Employment Readiness believes that every Army spouse should have a choice and be afforded the opportunity to develop a career and /or become employed. Employment Readiness won't do everything for you, but they will provide you with valuable information and critical job search skills.


Who's eligible to use the program?
[7/5/2007]

Active duty members, DA civilian employees, spouses, retirees, surviving spouses, and family members (to include youth), are eligible and highly encouraged to participate free of charge. What assistance does Employment Readiness provide? First, a professional Job Search Trainer will help you identify your immediate and long range career goals. Based on your needs assessment an Individual Career Plan will be developed to help ensure that you receive the necessary assistance.

There are 95 ACS centers worldwide. Call or walk into the ACS office nearest you and tell the receptionist that you'd like to make an appointment to begin the job search process. From there you will have a menu of services and workshops offered.
