COTTONWOOD -- The Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs' "Hero 2 Hired" program rolls into the Cottonwood Monday, March 25, with their Mobile Job Store operation.

The "Hero 2 Hired" program, better known as H2H, is a comprehensive, multi-faceted program that utilizes an electronic job and career web platform, mobile applications and Facebook integration, and virtual and physical career fairs to address the unique employment challenges facing members of the Guard and Reserve.

The Mobile Job Store allows Guard and Reserve attendees to search for available jobs through the H2H jobs website, specifically designed to connect Guardsmen and Reservists with military-friendly civilian employers that have made a stated commitment to hire veterans.

The Mobile Job Store also provides service members assistance with resume building and translating their military skills to civilian job qualifications. SGM Wayne L. Bowser, Senior Enlisted Advisor from the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve - National Committee, will be on the ground to demonstrate H2H program tools and functionalities.

"We're proud to provide this empowering tool absolutely free for Guard and Reserve Service members, spouses, veterans and employers," says Mr. Ronald Young, Director, Family and Employer Programs and Policy. "The Mobile Job Store is just a small part of H2H's focused effort to help service members and their spouses find employment through various activities including employment assistance workshops, job fairs, employment summits, and many other local community programs."

The Mobile Job Store is traveling across the country to help members of the Guard and Reserve find employment through the H2H program. Prior to Phoenix, the Mobile Job Store visited several cities in Arizona and is set to cover Tucson and Sierra Vista in the next couple of days.
