Welcome to the Employment Readiness, a service offered to you by Army Community Service (ACS) at Fort Sill, Oklahoma! It is our pleasure to offer you an excellent program that provides you with the latest information on employment, education, training, transition, and volunteer opportunities.

Military transitions are always a challenge. To help you thrive with success through these changes, the Employment Readiness program gives you the tools and resources to be competitive while you are stationed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma.

Prior to relocating, prepare and hand carry:

  • Your credentials and ensure that you have up-to-date records of employers’ address, title, etc.
  • Transcripts
  • Certifications (if you have a professional certification, call ahead to find out that the procedure is for transferring your certification to the new location.
  • Update your resume.
  • Contact Past Employers for Recommendations and the name, addresses, and telephone number of three references.
  • Professional Certifications.
  • Special awards or honors.
  • Letters of recommendations/appreciation from current employer.
  • Volunteer career portfolio.
  • Call the Employment Readiness at the new duty station.
  • Make contacts at the new duty station.
  • If a family member is looking for employment but does not have a Social Security Number, obtain one before you leave your present location. For information, call the Social Security Administration which is usually listed in the white pages in the telephone directory under” Social Security” Budget for unemployment.
  • A list of income and monthly expenses (home mortgage or rent, life insurance payments, food, transportation, etc) should be developed for the first six months after you move. Do not forget to include the additional expenses related to the relocations.
  • If you are a current Civil Service employee, consult your servicing CPAC office with questions about Military Spouse Preference opportunities, forms that should be hand-carried, and the possibility of taking an extended leave without pay.
  • If employment will require background security investigation, maintain a current listing of previous residences and dates to facilitate completion of any requirements.
