  • Classes on self-assessment and career exploration, resume writing, interviewing techniques, dressing for success, networking, and entrepreneurship
  • Résumé critiques
  • Career counseling and individual career assessments
  • Job fairs and other hiring events

Federal Jobs and MWR Jobs

For federal jobs, visit: www.usajobs.gov. Type “Fort Benning, GA” in the locations block, then click “search.”

  • This initial jobs list is for all U.S. citizens and includes all of Fort Benning. By default, this list also covers a 20-mile radius, so federal jobs in Columbus will also appear.
  • Veterans, previous federal employees and military spouses under Military Spouse Preference (EO 13473) should click on the circle on the left side of the page and check “Federal Employees.” This opens up the jobs for all special interest personnel.
  • All federal jobs that are announced will appear on www.usajobs.gov but, not all jobs on usajobs.gov are federal positions. NAF job vacancies are also listed.

For more information, visit the Civilian Personnel Advisory Center at Building 6, Meloy Hall, Room 113, or call +1(706) 545-2838.

 

We also encourage you to visit the Career Portal at Military One Source.
