The WorkEx program allows eligible active duty transitioning service members to participate in a 4-12 week (up to 180 days with chain of command approval) hands-on work based learning opportunity with a host employer (local or remote) to bridge the gap in skills and experience needed to land a full-time career opportunity within the civilian workforce.
