CAREER COUNSELING PROGRAM

1. AN ACTIVE ENLISTED CAREER COUNSELING AND RETENTION PROGRAM AT SEA AND SHORE COMMANDS IS VIEWED AS A VITAL ELEMENT IN OUR TOTAL INTERNAL COMMUNICATION EFFORT. INDIVIDUALIZED CAREER COUNSELING SERVICES HAVE PROVEN TO BE ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE METHODS OF ENSURING THAT PERSONNEL UNDERSTAND THE OPPORTUNITIES AND ADVANTAGES OF CONTINUED CAREER SERVICE AND OF HELPING THEM ARRIVE AT AN INTELLIGENT DECISION CONCERNING THEIR FUTURE.

2. IN AFFIRMATION OF MY SUPPORT OF PROGRAMS FOR OUR NAVY PEOPLE, I HAVE RECENTLY DIRECTED THE ESTABLISHMENT OF ADDITIONAL CAREER COUNSELING BILLETS TO EXPAND CAREER COUNSELING SERVICES BY FULL-TIME ENLISTED CAREER COUNSELORS UNENCUMBERED BY COLLATERAL DUTIES, AT ALL SEA COMMANDS WITH 200 OR MORE ENLISTED MEMBERS.

3. THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THESE NEW CAREER COUNSELING BILLETS SHOULD IN NO WAY DIMINISH THE ROLE OF THE DIVISION OFFICER AND LEADING PETTY OFFICER; CAREER COUNSELORS SHOULD WORK THROUGH AND WITH DIVISIONAL LEADERS IN HANDLING OF INDIVIDUAL CASES AND TO CONDUCT TRAINING OF DIVISION OFFICERS AND LEADING PETTY OFFICERS IN THE CAREER OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE. E. R. ZUMWALT, JR., ADMIRAL, U.S. NAVY, CHIEF OF NAVAL OPERATIONS.
