3/24/2011 - HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah -- According to the Utah Department of Workforce Services, the unemployment rate in Utah is 7.6 percent, making the complications of a job search a reality for many. Fortunately, free resources and services exist at the Airman and Family Readiness Center (A&FRC) for job seekers. Services are designed to help customers achieve employment, educational and career goals. These services are available to all Department of Defense employees and their eligible family members and include:

Employment skills counseling

The A&FRC provides workshops and seminars to assist in obtaining the skills necessary to engage in an effective job search. Topics include resume writing, interviewing, networking, dressing for success, and applying for federal employment opportunities. A recent addition to the A&FRC is facilitating a course in the use of the USAJobs website. This is a result of the April 24, 2011, mandate that all job seekers, including current Air Force employees, will be required to use the USAJobs system for applying for positions across the Air Force. The A&FRC currently hosts "Navigating USAJobs" every week and is open to all DoD personnel and their eligible family members. Interested individuals may contact the A&FRC at (801) 777-4681 for available class dates and times. Organizations may also request A&FRC staff to facilitate the course in group sessions at their worksites.

Resume reviews

A&FRC consultants also provide one-on-one assistance to help in determining career choices and resume reviews. These reviews can help job seekers understand the need for targeting resumes and applications to specific job announcement requirements. Typically customers should attend one of the seminars before submitting their completed resumes for review.

Access to resources

The A&FRC has a Discovery Center which provides access to computers equipped with services, resume writing software, printer, job opportunities and resource materials. These resources include self-help materials for self-employment, computer skills, career assessments, education, and resume writing. Customers may use the Discovery Center during A&FRC hours of operation, Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Job fairs

The A&FRC and Department of Workforce Services is hosting a Job Fair at Hill Air Force Base on April 27, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Club Hill. Updated information to include a listing of employers will be available at www.75thforcesupport.com/jobfair.

To receive further information about employment services or other services provided by the A&FRC, please contact center staff at (801) 777-4681.
