PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — The Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs’ “Hero 2 Hired” Mobile Job Store is scheduled to be at the Peterson Base Exchange parking lot (1030 East Stewart Avenue, Building 2017) Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 12-13 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The H2H Mobile Job Store made its first appearance at Peterson AFB assisting more than 50 military job seekers in January of this year.

This Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve partner program, also known as H2H, utilizes an electronic job and career web platform, mobile applications and Facebook integration, as well as virtual and physical career fairs to address the unique employment challenges facing members of the Guard and Reserve. While specifically created for Guard and Reserve service members, all job-seeking Department of Defense identification card holders to include active duty, Guard, Reserve, military spouses, veterans and military retirees are welcome to take advantage of this opportunity.

The Mobile Job Store allows users to search for available jobs through the H2H jobs website, specifically designed to connect those seeking employment with military-friendly civilian employers that have made a commitment to hire veterans. The H2H van also provides service members assistance with resume building and translating their military skills to civilian job qualifications.

Launched in November 2011, the mission of H2H is to simplify the job search while reducing the number of unemployed Reserve Component Service members. H2H is managed by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs and works in partnership with the Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program and ESGR. More information for H2H can be found on the 302nd Airlift Wing’s public website homepage at www.302aw.afrc.af.mil and at https://h2h.jobs/.
