  3. 3. For Official Use Only How Does the HRSC Process Work? Outreach And Marketing Traveling to Sites such as Camp LeJeune, Fort Drum, Quantico, Camp Pendleton, Brook Army Medical Center and various other sites to meet with the Wounded and let them know about Civilian Employment with the DON. HRSC Wounded Warrior Specialists aggressively seek to build relationships that will benefit the Navy such as: the Veteran Affairs OIF and OEF coordinators, contacts at Wounded Warrior Call Centers, Boswell Marine Base and many more. HRSC WW POCs have the flexibility to adapt and utilize a wide array of resources, and keep abreast of new programs as well as changing regulations and policy. Returning- “We’ll be back!” Many of the Wounded have heard empty stories and promises about people helping them and/or are they are simply not ready to be discharged when an initial visit is made. The key to success is letting them know we will be back and to continually follow-up with them after the initial visit. Professionalism Bringing Hiring Managers with the authority to hire and Human Resources professionals with extensive knowledge of federal hiring to answer any questions the wounded may have. During trips to Camp Lejeune Navy hiring managers attend and are able to interview the wounded warriors right at the barracks barracks. 3

Getting Started- “The Middleman” HRSC-Specialists serve as the connect between the Wounded and the hiring manager. The p g process of g getting started in a j g job can be difficult and stressful. Once a job has been extended to the veteran we stay available to help fill out paperwork, answer questions, and provide guidance to the hiring manager on questions pertaining to any of the specific hiring authorities such as: VRA- Veterans Recruitment Appointment, 30% or More Disabled Veteran, VEOA- Veterans Employment Opportunities Act of 1998. p y pp 4
