The Transition Assistance Management Program (TAMP) is designed to assist separating and retiring service members and their spouses with the complete job search. This includes making career decisions, networking, resume writing, and interviewing techniques.
Attendees will also receive military specific information on such topics as medical, household goods storage, the Survivors Benefit Plan, and reserve affiliations.
The TAMP provides assistance to active duty retiring, separating, and family members of military personnel. TAMP seminars are held every month for those retiring and separating from the military. The best way to leave the service is to be prepared for beginning your second career.

Office Equipment Available
The TAMP office provides free use of internet connected computers to assist you in your employment search. The use of the equipment is restricted to tasks related to employment, relocation, transition, retired affairs and veterans affairs. The FFSC maintains a resource library complete with books and videos on topics such as relocation, transition, resumes and cover letters, job search and interview techniques. Most resources are available for check out.
If you have the time and talent to share or need some "on-the-job" experience, consider volunteering at your Navy FFSC. The opportunities are plentiful, as are the rewards. If you are new to the Gulfport area, being a volunteer is a great way to get acquainted with your new locality, meet new people and get involved in the community. It also extends your network of professional acquaintances, develops creativity and allows exploration of new interests.
For many, volunteering is a way to stay involved and keep active.
Volunteering gives you a strong sense of responsibility and independence. Two of the most rewarding, long-term benefits of volunteering are the interesting people you meet and the great friends you can make.
Many useful skills can be learned and transferred to the job market. Today, most employers accept volunteer experience as part of a person's work history. Look closely at volunteer jobs that relate to your personal interests and career goals.
On the other hand, everyone does not need to be employed. Having a job is a financial necessity for many people but there are many other people, young, old and in-between, for whom a paid job is not essential or appropriate. Some of the most challenging, demanding and exciting work needing to be done is to be found in the volunteer sphere.
Join the Navy FFSC in helping the military community as a volunteer. If you are interested in greeting people, answering phones or assisting with client services or sharing information, contact the Volunteer Program Manger at FFSC for information on volunteer opportunities. If you're up to the challenge, all it takes is time and concern for others.
Make a difference - Volunteer! The rewards are amazing!
