In the past enlisting in the US Army was an endeavor that lasted simply just as long as your enlistment contract. When your enlistment was up, so was any involvement with the military. The Army did not have any interest, nor did they support any further involvement with Veterans, you did your enlistment contract and then you were done. Well, that has changed. Now, the US Army competes with the private sector for personnel, and they have a number of post-Army support programs that make enlistment in the US Army very lucrative. One of these programs is the PaYs Youth Program.
This stands for the Partnership for Youth Success program. It is a support program for young people to choose a profession or a job area that they wish to participate in after they are done with the US Army. This is a program that is now available for those people that enlist in the Army and it is available when they first enlist in the Army. The candidate looks over the list of companies that provide post Army jobs, and then selected from a couple different choices of corporations or companies that they believe would be a good fit for themselves. After you serve and complete your enlistment then you are setup a guaranteed interview with the company you select. Most types you will be able to serve the company in some form as a hired employee, which give you a lot of advantage over others that are hired at the same time. In the past the Army had absolutely no interest in dealing with people after they completed their enlistment, but times change. The United Stated Army is a modernized force, and it now is often directly involved in assisting its Servicemembers with finding and obtaining post Army employment.
When a person first decided that they want to join the Army they are able to visit the recruiter, who can give them a life of different large national companies that participate in the Youth Success Program. One you are matched up with a job specialty and guaranteed school and job course you will attend boot camp, and then later technical school. Then, you serve in your military job for the duration of your enlistment.
After you are separated, you will then be provided with a chance to interview with the program you selected when you entered the US Army. While you are not guaranteed to be hired, you are guaranteed a job interview, and often companies will quickly hire Veterans as long as they have a clean record, because they know the standards that the Army has for its enlisted Servicemembers.
