WP AOG Career/Transition Assistance

Below is some information on the career transition programs available to graduates through the West Point Association of Graduates.

If you need assistance tailoring your résumé, we have some résumé samples posted on our website in the Career Services area:  See the menu at right (career correspondence), there are some résumé writing tips and some sample résumés for grads in various stages of their career.

The Service Academy Business Resource Directory-<> is an excellent business-to-business and career transition source. It contains contact and business information submitted by over 49,000 graduates. iSABRD provides a way for those in need of certain services in a geographical area (relocation questions, finding a physician, attorney, etc.), those hiring or seeking a job etc., an easy and efficient way to find one of their own. The majority of grads are willing to assist with career transition opportunities.   You can search for grads working in businesses in the area you are living or in an industry you would like more information on and get in contact with them about opportunities. It is free to create your profile and search the entire database. You will log in with your Cullum number and the last four digits of your social security number.

Four times a year we host a powerful hiring event - the Service Academy Career Conference (SACC). It is a joint job fair exclusively for academy graduates. A great opportunity to meet face-to-face with employers from numerous industries looking to specifically hire service academy graduates. You can find out more information at<>. SACC will give you a great indication of the types of opportunities that are available to you now and provides the opportunity to receive your first interview on the spot with company recruiters. I highly recommend SACC when you searching for a new professional opportunity.

The third program we have is Joint Service Academies Jobs Electronically -<>.  JSAJE is our electronic, internet based job listing and resume posting service. You may search the job postings, apply for positions and post your résumé for free. You can search for job postings by location, industry, position, etc. Employers register on the site to post job opportunities and to search the résumé database. Employers with a résumé search subscription may seek you out if your résumé shows something that is a fit for their company as well.
