PaYS Soldiers, have you seen the new feature in PIX?

PaYS Soldiers did you know? PaYS constantly strives to enhance every aspect of the Program ensuring the most user friendly experience. PaYS technology has upgraded the Soldier section of the PaYS website with a very important change. Soldiers now have the ability to enter how many interviews they’ve received, as well as, if and when they were hired.

Here’s how it works: Navigate to the PaYS website https://www.armypays.com and click the PIX Login menu button on the left. Enter your User ID and Password to gain access to your PIX account information. In the PIX menu to the left, click “PAYS HIRE” to pull up partner/job details. Then as you can see in the screen shot below, the Employment Consideration Details section has been added.

PaYS_HIRE

Why should you enter this information? Providing this information helps the PaYS program determine if the Army is meeting their contractual agreement by providing Soldiers with their job interviews and possible assist them in gaining employment after the Army. By tracking the actual number of interviews and comparing them to the total hire number, we are able to analyze what methods are working well for the Army, Soldiers and PaYS partners. Likewise, it also helps PaYS establish what approaches could use some improvement, for example if the interview ration is 10 interviews to one hire, this could indicate poor resumes, unprepared interview skills, etc. Resume writing classes and interview techniques training are available through other Army resources featured on the Army PaYS website.

What does an unsuccessful tactic look like? It’s true the PaYS program can open doors for Soldiers by providing a guaranteed interview; however, interviews don’t mean employment. Consider this for example: a Soldier has had several interviews, but not been hired. Competition for any job in today’s market is not to be taken lightly. However, with techniques and preparations a Soldier can increase their chances of being hired. When a Soldier inputs their interview and hire data in PIX the total numbers are used to assess how well prepared Soldiers really were for their interview.

When should Soldiers reach out to his or her partner? One important factor for aiding in the hiring process is to create a relationship with the potential employer within six months prior to your ETS date. The transition process for ETS’ing Soldiers has been extended to 12 months because the Army realized the sooner the preparation begins the better. Creating the relationship early also allows more time for the partner to get to know the Soldier and their qualifications. Building the relationship provides better chances at getting hired.

What have PaYS partners reported? Currently PaYS partners have reported interviewing 2,394 Soldiers and hiring 1,160 of them. From this we know that for every two interviews, one PaYS Soldier is hired. Now we must look at improving that ratio by better preparing Soldiers for interviews, tightening up resumes, and presenting easily attainable examples and techniques.

Enough waiting, update the PaYS Information Exchange (PIX) with your current contact information, interview history and results. If you haven’t already contacted your Partner, do it soon.

If you need to update your partner contact information contact the PaYS helpdesk at usarmy.knox.hqda-asa-mra.mbx.payshelpdesk@mail.mil or call 1-800-223-3735, extension 31222.

Help us to track the success of the PaYS Program. Every Soldier hired by a PaYS Partner is a win-win situation for all and should be celebrated.

National Society of Black Engineers–NSBE a great networking event for Partnership

National Society of Black Engineers–NSBE a great networking event for Partnership
By Shae Warzocha

The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) is a great networking event for anyone dedicated to the academic and professional success of African-American engineering students and professionals. NSBE offers its members leadership training, professional development, mentoring opportunities, career placement services and more. Therefore, it was fitting that NSBE’s 2014 Annual Conference held in Nashville, TN was also the location where the PaYS Program had representation both supporting the Army’s efforts and PaYS Partners representatives attending the event.

NSBE

Mr. Mark Peckham, Recruiting Operations Officer and LTC Kendric Smith, Professor of Military Science from Vanderbilt University, Amanda Talbott from Facebook, Phillip Mucker, Senior Marketing Analyst, PaYS Program and Mr. John Bautch, Recruiting Operations Officer from Middle Tennessee State University

“Our theme this year, is Engineering and Leadership in Harmony”, Brandon Johnson the Convention Planning Committee (CPC) Chair began, “we are going to dust off the old photo album and show you how our family has grown and exemplified engineering and leadership over the past four decades.”

NSBE is comprised of 242 collegiate, 70 professional and 82 pre-college active chapters nationwide and overseas. These chapters are geographically divided into six regions. NSBE is governed by an executive board of college students and engineering professionals and is operated by a professional staff in their World Headquarters located in Alexandria, VA. NSBE has accomplished more for Black engineering students than any other organization in the world.

Our NSBE’s PaYS representative, Phillip Mucker, Senior Marketing Analyst, used the opportunity to meet with two local Reserve Officer Training Corps departments and Amanda Talbott, Recruiter, Veterans Programs and Initiatives for Facebook, Inc. Facebook just recently became the Army’s 500th PaYS Partner and participated in our annual All American Bowl in January. The Recruiting Operations Officer (ROO) Mark Peckham and the Professor of Military Science, LTC Kendric Smith, from Vanderbilt University along with Middle Tennessee State University’s ROO, John Bautch were able to meet with Ms. Talbott due to all being in attendance at NSBE.

PaYS Partners served as both sponsors and maintained outreach booths at the Career Fair Expo. The 40th Annual Convention included events for collegiate audiences, Pre-Collegiate Initiative (PCI) mini events, graduate school and technical professional specific events. Feature guest speakers included the Governor of Mississippi, R. Musgrove, on Thursday’s General Session and PaYS Partner Johnson Controls, featured Karla Bonzie as the General Sessions speaker on Friday.

Alegre Trucking partners with the United States Army through PaYS

The former commander of Sacramento Recruiting Battalion, Col. William "Bill" Nagel joins Tony Alegre for a signing of the ceremonial agreement between The United States Army and Alegre Trucking, Inc., on March 25 in Lodi, Calif. This particular Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) partnership came about due to a connection the battalion's North Bay Company commander, Capt Matthew Roehm, had with the Alegre's. Since Capt Roehm just happened to grow up with Tony Alegre's son, Roehm was able to facilitate the PaYS event even though it was not in his company footprint.     Frank C. Alegre, Sr. started the company with just one truck in 1963. Tony Alegre took leadership of the company in January of 2000. The company now has over 200 employees and dispatches 170 units and 400 sets of trailers of its own, while maintaining contracts with many independent operators. The company handles hauling of construction materials and bulk foods products.
