I am a veteran and currently a military spouse too. After being at our mid-west duty station for one-year, I decided to start my job search. I found out about and registered for CASY’s services. I was quickly connected with an employment specialist who gave feedback on my resume and identified job listings in my region that I might be interested in. However most of the jobs required a large degree of travel which wasn’t an option for me due to adverse winter weather conditions in our area. Although I had over 5 years’ experience in instructional design, there wasn’t a great deal of job openings in that field in the city that we lived in. At that point, my employment specialist mentioned that CASY had a Career Corps Volunteer Program that provided mentorship, training and work experience related to my field. I applied, and I was accepted as a Volunteer Trainer. My mentor provides me with opportunities that utilize and keep my skills current. I am able to submit articles providing tips for veterans and military spouses searching for employment that are published in the organization’s, “Military Service Employment Journal.” I am granted access to software where I am able to design eLearning courses that are utilized and made available to job seekers through the organization’s free, online training modules. I am thankful for this volunteer position, and I believe that the work I am accomplishing will enable me to remain competitive in the job market.

MSCCN is a great organization to volunteer for. They help keep your skills up-to-date and really make you feel like an important part of the team. It's a great place for military spouses and veterans to feel appreciated and get help in finding employment.

CASY/MSCCN is a phenomenal organization to receive employment assistance from AND also to be employed by! Their support is invaluable and it works! Personally, as a military spouse, I sought them out while seeking employment at our new duty station, I choose to volunteer for them, while I was seeking employment as a means to stay active, gain education in a different field and to hopefully fill that "resume gap"... My volunteer position led to an employment offer from CASY/MSCCN! AND, my position allows ME to offer support to other military spouses, vets and transitioning military who are in the same position! CASY/MSCCN was created from a deep passion to give back, help others and do good things...It is refreshing to know that there is actually an employer/organization that is also passionate about wanting those same things for their employees!

CASY/MSCCN is an outstanding organization. Working with them from beginning to the end ultimately resulted in finding employment. During this process I also took advantage of the free online training classes CASY/MSCCN has to offer. I can't thank CASY/MSCCN and my Employment Specialist enough for assisting me during this life changing event.

I did not grow up in a military family and I barely knew anyone who was in the military except for older relatives who rarely talked about their experience. So when I married my husband I didn't think about how his being in the military would influence what I did with my career.

I searched for nearly 9 months before moving to be with him with not even a single call back. I decided to move without a job and spent another 3 months and the only position I could get was cleaning part time even with years of experience and my BA. After speaking to other military spouse they all had the same issues, a company sees a bunch of different cities on our resume or find out we moved because our spouse got new orders. They get concerned that if they hire us there is no guarantee that we will be able to stay there for a long time. I could see it in the interviewers face when they find out I am a military spouse. The look that show they've lost interest and it was heartbreaking. I was so happy that I found CASY&MSCCN. I started volunteering and am now working with the organization.

This organization is made up of the most amazing people who give their all everyday to help as many people in our military family as they can. I am proud to be a part of this amazing organization.

There isn't another organization out there that supports our military community like CASY. I grew up in a military family, in a military town and it was always instilled in me to help our own, to give back. I can not begin to explain how passionate I am about this program and what it does for our 'military family'.
I am so proud and honored to be a part of an organization that truly puts the service member and their spouses first. From preparing them for their search, walking with them on their career journey, to being able to hear the excitement, joy, and thanks in their voices when they are offered a position, is something I think we all strive for. It's been a truly humbling experience and I am so blessed to be on this team.

This program has a wonderful network of people throughout the organization. As a an applicant, I was given time, dedication and expertise and help by several people here. As a volunteer, I was given an opportunity to help my family and gain independence and freedom. CASY not only helped me as a spouse finding and gaining employment, they helped me keep employment. They deserve 5 stars because their mission is attract and help out folks in need which is what they did and what they will continue to do.

I knew about MSCCN from a friend who was participating of an event for Military Spouse of the year in DC. I register and love the idea of having all this resources for free and not limited to Veterans. Military Spouses left soo much behind to support their family. Relocating and finding a job is always overwhelming and here you can get assistance and support during your job search. One on one also makes a huge difference. MSCCN is my first recomendation when someone reach out for help and assistance with their job search.
