With active-duty positions being eliminated, it is important for servicemembers identified for separation to use a vital tool -- the Transition Assistance Program (TAP). The transition program partners the resources of the Department of Defense, Department of Labor, Veterans Affairs and Department of Homeland Security by highlighting available benefits, offering career counseling, helping with resumes and customizing financial planning.A new feature TAP offers is webinars aimed at demobilizing service members of the National Guard, Reserve, Wounded Warriors and their families. In these webinars you'll learn how to translate your military experience into civilian terms, create a new financial plan or even understand the federal employment system. You will also be able to connect with those who are going through similar experiences and learn from them.
Live trainers facilitate these highly interactive sessions, which are designed to give you practical information that can be put to use immediately. They are accessible from any location where broadband Internet and phone are available. “Program your GPS for success” by clicking on the registration link for the courses of your choice. Seats are limited and fill quickly, so register as soon as you can if you're interested.
