Transition Programs

Providing skills and tools needed for a seamless transition out of the military.

Transition Workshops and Hiring Events

The USO of North Carolina hosts career transition workshops for active-duty, wounded, ill and injured troops, NC National Guard and Reserves, their spouses and caregivers. The workshops focus on resume writing, mock interviews, professional work practices and translating prior military experience into a civilian career. As a follow up to the workshops, the USO of North Carolina offers a job pipeline to connect to hiring events across the state. These are not the average job fairs. Service members are matched directly with jobs they are qualified for and employers conduct interviews with the purpose of filling a vacancy in their organization that day.

Military Culture in a Civilian Workplace: A USO of NC Training for HR Professionals

Equipping service members with transition skills is important, however the USO of NC takes it one step further by educating local HR professionals on military culture. This one day training gives companies the tools they need to recognize the benefits of hiring service members. Topics include tax benefits, affirmative action requirements, military culture education and dealing with post-traumatic stress in the workplace.
