Army Strong Community Center (ASCC) Connects Service Member with Employment Resource

On August 21, 2015 a Marine Reserve service member contacted an ASCC Brevard Customer Support Coordinator (CSC) to discuss available resources for locating new employment.  The Marine worked part time for local law enforcement, but current budget restraints made it difficult to get a full time position.  The CSC contacted NC Works and learned that the Mission Hospital hires security staff through American Security Company, and conducts interviews at the NC Works office.  The CSC relayed this information to the Marine. The Marine contacted the CSC on August 26th and informed her that the he was hired for a full-time position working security for Mission Hospital.
