Try USAjobs. Government civilian jobs often use the same MOS/AFSC descriptions as the military making a match easier to find. Good search engine in the web site.

Way back when I was in my last year I had done some of my own job searching and found one with a hotel restaurant . I was surprised the poured on the steam and got the Restaurant opened.before the hotel was ready.. I was able to get to work there getting 15-20 hrs a week. Of course my AF job came first.. I couldn’t work all the shifts the restaurant wanted me to and they understood that.. Near the end I had to meet with a State of Va. employment counselor.. kinda got chewed on because I didn’t follow their protocol.. said I stole a job from a VA. Citizen.. What I needed was to get paperwork to get a jump into Mi-Works employment device to get registered was all I had a job transfer set to work at Detroit Metro Airport at the restaurant in the hotel right in the airport.. like Va., Michigan had
protocols too.. I needed on that Veterans list .. just to be on it not to
Need a job. Though it could happened . If I could get a number
With high enough priority just in case. .. Well because I did how I did, she said I was on my own..
She left for a few minutes and I saw
the job service transfer request from Va. to Mi-works. She did the temp
Absence act and I picked up the
Paperwork and envelope and headed out the door after making sure her signature was on it and it was dated .. I got it set to mail and seen my Airman friend and he dropped it in a priority bag that just happened to be going to Selfridge that night . A friend of his at the other end got it transferred to a USPS priority mail box to go to Detroit mail processing . Mi-works was just down the street . They had it next day. Now that’s mail service
It would of been 4 To 5 days .maybe.. So when I got to Mi. I had
a good amount of points.. I was home 3 days and went and stopped in at the hotel restaurant. They gave me 6 sets of Jackets/trousers/hatsaprons.. I still had a couple from the other position in Va. The job took n had them cleaned and packaged n sent back.
They had a different color piping on their jackets . It. Was nice to get uniforms that fit without having to be tailored . My ride was waiting so I said I’d see them in a couple days .
I thought there could be some problems.. but didn’t know what the sitrep was.. A young fella had applied in Michigan a few days after I had in Va. but was just getting about to be called when my paperwork from the hotel restaurant in Va. arrived . I was there a couple days later.. Mi. Got some funny rules protecting citizens in their job quests. Even though I was a Veteran and had a Mi address. I was consid-ered a transient because I been gone 4 years.. The hotel lawyers won for me and I had the job. Mi-works told him if he still wanted to fight for the job they would give his private lawyer any assistance needed. He didn’t come from a wealthy family.. he was a jobs project vo-tech trained cook.. I kinda understood his sitrep.. I been through the vo-tech ringer.. but under different clime.. I wish my Aunt were still alive, she could Find him a job. Position.. He kept coming by hoping another position opened . I was there one day to pickup my paycheck .... the last one before going to My account. He was getting ready to leave.. Come on with me.. i showed him the company catalog and I found a sub- company restaurant in Battle Creek
.talked to the Exec Chef and Catering Mgr. <~he put a call to Battle Creek .. they needed a cook,
He told him the young man’s train’g..
Mgr asked would he consider going to Battle Creek? Well he had family (uncle, Aunt, cousins). Anyway we got hiM on his way and on a bus to
Battle Creek, the Mgr from the restaurant there would meet the bus. It was a good feeling to turn a negative to a positive .. I wanted to help him because he kept coming back, he wouldn’t give in... Let’s put him somewhere ! I don’t know if he
Is still in Battle Creek.. maybe... it’s been since ‘85.. I moved to a restaurant Hotel in Lansing by the Mi State College Campus for awhile..
There was a young catering Mgr there still in college.. The big boss took care of his Veterans and we were running the cook teams .this kid didn’t like what the boss was doing saying he was being discriminating .. He wasn’t racist, 2 of the Vets were “not Caucasian”
So there went that idea.. and just by chance the Vets all had the best days off., that irked him. I and 2 other Vets had our check going to a financial institution and my day off fell on payday.. So to get at me
The catering mgr would call and say he had to discuss a party coming up and maybe make changes.. I’d show up and he be gone . He timed it like that.. Mr. C was upset with that.
I earned $25 an hr as a Chef. The catering Mgr. seen his check $25 less . A few times ..asked the General Mgr why? Because Chef Herrst has things he could’ve been doing but you call him in on payday
Under false pretenses and you’ve taken off.. so I evened the score ..
Now maybe you’ll leave him have his day off.. eh?... So he quit that.,
I was Salaried .. we had to share an office.. his desk was a pig pen.. . I picked out all the contracts for parties stacked by dates.. afternoon, eves, weekend..! Any scrap papers sandwich halves and coffee cups I shoved in a garbage bag and left on his chair., Mr. C left him a note to clean up his dwsk and floor. After a few times that quit ..
he didn’t quit... Mr. C. Fired him..
he walked out left a mess and Mr. C cut him loose .. when he came to get his last check .. ohh he owed for some sport coats and company shirts n ties .. he’d get a check when that stuff was turned in and his evaluation was forwarded to the head of hospitality education at MI
State big fat incompletes. Another check he got would be empty .. and the room he borrowed upstairs to sleep over Mr C. Billed him for .. part of agreement for the room was to properly maintain it, don’t leave like a pig pen..(I know.. praise in public
Scold in private.. but some take too much advantage.. rooms went for $90 to a $150 a night .. We’ll just say it was a sizable bill..
