Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) Recruiting Wounded Warriors into Shipyards - Meaningful Career Opportunities
by Department of Defense Transition Assistance Program (TAP) on Friday, August 13, 2010.

NAVSEA's Wounded Warrior Program seeks to arm experienced Warriors with the education and training to expand their workforce. NAVSEA offers a stable job with the top health, educational and retirement benefits of the federal government.

Our challenge is to harness the power of our warriors," said NAVSEA Commander Vice Adm. Kevin McCoy. "We have many organizations represented here and many talented people. But we need more than talent - we need to create a system that allows each and every warrior access to our programs and offer them the opportunity to choose to continue to pursue a career of service."?

NAVSEA  needs engineers, scientists, technicians and managers to join their team of more than 58,000 at 38 activities located around the country and overseas. NAVSEA offers Wounded Warriors internships, apprenticeships, employment and educational counseling.

Internships offer the training and education to enable Wounded Warriors to excel in entry-level placements and to move up quickly to positions of management. Opportunities are available throughout the country.

NAVSEA’s four shipyards offer four-year apprenticeships with eligibility at all levels of education and work experience. These programs offer opportunities in Norfolk, Va., Portsmouth, Maine, Bremerton, Wash., and Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

Temporary and permanent employment opportunities are available at NAVSEA headquarters in Washington, D.C., and at NAVSEA activities throughout the country
