BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. --
The Hero to Hired, or H2H, Mobile Job Store is scheduled to visit Buckley Air Force Base 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jan. 19-20 at The Exchange and commissary parking lot.
The Mobile Job Store is a job-searching opportunity on wheels that travels to various locations offering access to search jobs at military-friendly companies for service members, veterans and retirees, as well as their spouses. The store also offers guidance with résumé writing and equating military experience to civilian job qualifications.
Specifically, the mobile service aids Guard and Reserve members searching for employment with military-friendly civilian employers who are committed to hiring veterans; however the aid provided extends beyond the Guard and Reserve components.
"We're proud to provide this empowering tool absolutely free for Guard and Reserve service members, spouses, veterans and employers," said Ronald Young, Family and Employer Programs and Policy director. "The Mobile Job Store is just a small part of H2H's focused effort to help service members and their spouses find employment through various activities including employment assistance workshops, job fairs, employment summits, and many other local community programs."
Army Sgt. Maj. Wayne Bowser Sr., Family and Employer Programs and Policy senior enlisted advisor in the Pentagon's Office of Reserve Affairs, will be on the ground to demonstrate H2H program tools and functionalities, according to an H2H media release.
H2H, managed by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs and partnered with the Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program and Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, is a program that was distinctively designed to address the employment challenges for Guard and Reserve service members.
