Learn More About Be Connected Career Navigation


One of the results of the pandemic, besides everyone learning how to kindly tell their colleagues “You’re on mute…” was that many workers were able to (or required to) work from home. This sudden shift to a virtual connection to work offered an unexpected glimpse into the once elusive land of work-life balance. Even though the kids may have been in the family room learning history, the ability to throw in a load of laundry and pet the dog for a bit on the 10-step commute to the office was eye-opening for many. 

If you’re ready for a career change, either to trade in the hours behind the wheel commuting for a headset or to advance to a new role, or to change industries altogether– the Be Connected Career Navigation team is here to help you.

Be Connected Career Navigation is a no-cost career coaching and employment matching service exclusively available to all military members (transitioning Active Duty, Guard, and Reserve) as well as veterans, their spouses, and family members. The team is based right here in Arizona and is led by Ayla, a U.S. Air Force veteran. Ayla and her team offer workshops and briefings online and in-person that can help career seekers better position themselves for career opportunities. 

By working with the Be Connected Career Navigation team, you’ll have access to no-cost workshops on leveraging LinkedIn, optimizing your resume, connecting to career opportunities, preparing for interviews, and attending virtual job fairs. Career Navigation is also a pathway to connect to more than 250 Arizona Veteran Supportive Employers – businesses and organizations that have programs and policies in place to attract, retain and develop the talent of people with a military background including military spouses, family members, and of course- veterans and service members.
