What is the Upward Mobility Program?

Question:

Answer:
The Employment Readiness Office located within Army Community Service (ACS) can provide some job assistance, as can the local Civilian Personnel Office on post and civilian community employment offices. There are a number of online resources that can assist you with employment opportunities in your new community as well.

Question:
What should I do to prepare for a job interview?

Answer:
The first thing you should do is research the position you are applying for and the employer so you are comfortable talking with your interviewer about the potential job. You should also dress appropriately for the interview, be polite, prepare some questions for your interviewer, and, if appropriate, bring additional copies of your resume and/or portfolio to the interview. There are many resources available to assist you in preparing for job interviews, to include books and counselors. Check with the Employment Readiness Officer at the Army Community Service (ACS) office, counselors at the Army Career and Alumni Program Office (ACAP), as well as local job assistance centers at local colleges for more information.

Question:
Where can I apply for government civilian jobs?

Answer:

You can also find job vacancies online by visiting installation websites and selecting "Employment" links or visit the Army's Civilian Personnel On Line website for more information (www.cpol.army.mil).
