Military and Industry Leaders Embrace the TAP Virtual Learning Seminars!

Classification: UNCLASSIFIED
Caveats: NONE

Good Morning,

We welcome and encourage your continued support in spreading the word about these very useful seminars to the Service members and families that will benefit from them the most. Please continue to post on your program's web channels and email blast through your networks! They are making a positive difference through your individual contribution to our service members and their families.

The Transition Assistance Program (TAP) Virtual Learning Seminars,
administered by the OSD WWCTP, continue to be a growing success story that is now being enthusiastically embraced by senior military leadership and prominent figures in business and academia.

In addition to providing Service members and their families with an
interactive educational forum to delve into employment and career related
topics, such as "Building Better Resumes" and "Financial Planning for a
Career Change," the online seminars now feature "surprise celebrity guest"
appearances by senior military and business leaders.

Leaders such as Army Reserve Command Sergeant Major Michael D. Schultz, Navy Reserve Force Master Chief Ronney A. Wright, and Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense John R. Campbell have made guest appearances to motivate the attendees, stress the importance of proper transition planning, and also to participate in the classes along with the Service members and families.

Next week, two TAP Virtual Learning Seminars will be hosted and feature
guest appearances by a senior executive of a Fortune 100 company and a
highly respected senior fellow at one of the world's top business schools.

Next week's webinars are:

.         The Art of Career Networking - April 26, 9:00pm EST
.         Acing the Interview - April 28, 8:00pm EST

June's virtual seminars schedule will be released to the public next week
and features an important new class - "Decoding Military Skills for Civilian
Employers." Please find attached your advance copy of the May-June webinar promotional/information flyer and an updated Virtual Learning Opportunity Catalogue that provides detailed information on the learning opportunities, including the new class. Class schedules and webinar registration information can also be found on www.turbotap.org.

Despite limited space in these weekly classes, there have been more than 900 hundred registrations for these weekly classes by Guard and Reserve members, Wounded Warriors, family members, and Service members including those deployed to Afghanistan, Iraq and other far flung areas of the globe.

You can also link to their Facebook (www.Facebook.com/DoDTAP) or follow on Twitter (www.Twitter.com/DoDTAP ) to learn more about the continuing efforts to assist our dedicated military community. Let's continue working together to help transitioning Service members develop their career GPS (Goal, Plan, Succeed).

Please feel free to call or e-mail me, if you have any questions or comments
regarding the TAP Virtual Learning Seminars or this outreach effort.
