JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas —
Active-duty members transitioning out of the military can learn about skills and tips to help them get a job at the “Confidence Outside the Uniform” workshop at the Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston Military & Family Readiness Center, building 2797, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 18.

The workshop is open to all transitioning service members, military spouses, veterans and Department of Defense civilians within JBSA, including JBSA-Fort Sam Houston, JBSA-Lackland, JBSA-Randolph and JBSA-Camp Bullis. The JBSA M&FRC Employment Readiness Program and the Texas Veterans Commission are conducting the workshop.

Workshop topics include interview techniques, proper attire to wear to an interview, how to handle salary negotiations and tips on translating skills and utilizing networking in getting a job.

Alma Guivas, JBSA community readiness specialist, said the workshop provides JBSA members with the skills that give them a competitive edge in their job search.

“The workshop will assist in boosting their confidence by brushing up on the essentials needed to secure a new job and readjust to civilian life,” Guivas said. “These resources are great tools for the transitioning service member to have to be able to organize their job search. Especially with our large audience of transitioning service members, they don’t always stay around here in the area, but we want to send them prepared to whatever part of the world they’re going to.”

Comment List

  • The best thing you can do for your boyfriend is be supportive of what he can eat and protect him from negative comments about his diet and future health. Selective eaters, surprisingly don’t have any more risk of health issues than the normal eating population. Stressing about what isn’t in his diet is far more harmful than anything he does eat.

    I precisely needed to appreciate you yet again. I am not sure the things that I could possibly have taken care of without the entire creative concepts shared by you over this concern. Completely was a very difficult concern in my position, but understanding the specialised approach you processed the issue took me to weep over happiness.
