Transition Offices

The Transition Assistance Program (TAP) was established to meet the needs of separating service members and their spouses to make the initial transition from Military service to the civilian workplace by offering job-search assistance and related services.

Transition Assistance consists of comprehensive three-day workshops at selected military installations. Professionally trained workshop facilitators from the State Employment Services, military family support services, Department of Labor contractors, or VETS’ staff present the workshops.

While attending the workshops you will be exposed to:

  • Job Searches
  • Career decision-making
  • Current occupational and labor market conditions
  • Resume and cover letter preparation
  • Interviewing techniques

Participants also are provided with an evaluation of their employability relative to the job market and receive information on the most current veterans’ benefits.
