GBX Awarded Contract to Provide Support to Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command’s (SPAWAR) TrAnsitioning SERvicemember (TASER) Job Placement Program
GBX Consultants, Inc. was awarded a contract with the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) to provide transition education and job placement services. The TrAnsistioning SERvicemember (TASER) Job Placement Program is a pilot program that will be tailored for servicemembers based on their level of education, training, and experience. The goal is for participants to acquire the skills necessary to successfully market themselves to the civilian business community and secure job offers prior to separation from service.
“We are excited to be working with SPAWAR on this pilot program,” said Gene Bruseau, President/CEO. “This important initiative is not just about finding any job—the goal is to spend the time upfront exploring the many options available, asking the questions, doing the research, and overcoming the fear of the unknown, so that when the servicemember accepts employment, it’s at a position that is a good match for both employer and employee.”
The TASER course will include practical demonstrations and classroom activities designed to teach the job application standards in the civilian industry. In addition, courses will provide instruction on resume structure and formation, interviewing skills, job search techniques, networking skills and resources, and business communication training.
