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.

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.

This organization is wonderful! Many times we just do not know where to go or who to ask for help when it comes to employment readiness and assistance. Thank you CASY/MSCCN for all the help and opportunities to help others!

The Corporate America Supports You mission is to assist Active Duty/Veteran/Retired/Reserve Military Personnel and their Spouses as well as Wounded Warriors and their Caregivers in seeking employment. As a veteran and independent contractor I find that this nonprofit organization does what it claim it does. They aggressively engaged in the success of that mission. Tools and management systems are being touched daily to ensure success. Brainstorming sessions are conducted weekly with best practices discussed and clarified. Veterans that are being assisted are expressing a sincere gratitude for the CASY career assessment, resume review and interview consultation and other job search tips being shared. The tools and resources provided are valuable in securing and assisting these veterans. Hot jobs and job boards are available 24/7. The chain of command is open to suggestions and ideas are shared. Management shows genuine concern for their employees. Weekly accomplishments of job placement provide the staff with pride and satisfaction.
I give this nonprofit a 4.5 star.

MSCCN/CASY is a wonderful organization that has excellent customer service, and works one on one with each applicant that comes in. The candidate works closely with an assigned Employment Specialist to find the right career for each candidate. The program offers resume assessment, classes to help with interview techniques, and so much more for FREE!

The passion and commitment displayed by CASY (Leadership, Staff, and Board Members) to serve it's mission and help place military Veterans in suitable and desired careers is an energy and focus in which every organization should seek to achieve. The growth in the number of Veterans they've been able to impact is staggering and their percentage of spend on every dollar donated is the most impressive I've ever seen.

My name is Maria Cottrell, I am a caregiver of a wounded warrior. When my husband was injured I did not know what I was going to do. Working was not an option due to needing to be there for my husband and bills were piling up. I have been so very blessed to work with MSCCN, I am able to take my husband to his appointments and be there for him daily. It feels so rewarding to know that I am able to help with bills and help provide for my family. My family and I are so very grateful for what MSCCN has done for my family. This organization is such a blessing and we appreciate everything MSCCN has done for us.

As a military family of over 20 years, CASY has been instrumental in providing guidance and job placement services to transitioning military. I cannot imagine where our retiring and transitioning military members would be without CASY to help lead them into the next chapter of their lives. Moreover, what I appreciate most about this particular charity is the financial transparency!!! Oh my gosh. With so many charities today taking advantage of the military, it is refreshing that this one truly does what is intended and missioned. THANK YOU TO CASY!!!

As a qualified career development practitioner and military spouse I am proud to volunteer with CASY MSCCN. Not only does CASY MSCCN provide job placement solutions but we assist veterans and spouses to make the most of employment opportunities by providing job search training and personalized assistance, thus providing comprehensive employment assistance. We understand the employment challenges that veterans and military spouses face because we are veterans and/or spouses. As well as giving me the opportunity to serve the military community CASY MSCCN's volunteer Career Corp program is also helping my professional development.

Finding continuous employment as a military spouse, that offers portability, flexibility and experience that will aid you in the future is extremely difficult. CASY-MSCCN not only provides these opportunities to their job seekers in many different areas, but their own volunteers and staff as well. Transparent and upfront is a great characteristic to see in a nonprofit and they have done this seamlessly as well. I am proud and grateful to have the opportunity to work with this company in so many aspects of my job search.

After serving in the military for 25 years I reached out to several organizations that claimed to help servicemembers and their families find employment. What I found was a lot of lip service. In an effort to make a difference I found employment with DoD and Non-profit organizations that made that same claim, but all fell short of their promise. CASY has not only lived up to their promise, but has regularly found ways to exceed expectations by expanding services and partnering companies and educational institutions to bring new training and employment opportunities to our Veterans. The BEST Veteran Employment Services Non-Profit I have had the honor to have worked with !!
