Resource Highlight – CASY & MSCCN

Written by Phylicia Vallier

CASY & MSCCN is a military organization serving military families. They understand the challenges that Milspouses face, and in many instances, their team has been in your shoes. Whether you are looking for a volunteer position to gain experience, training assistance and resume assessments, or virtual employment opportunities CASY & MSCCN are here to support you every step of the way.

We asked Amy Rossi, the CoFounder at CASY & MSCCN the following questions for VirtForce Members:

What does CASY & MSCCN look for in a virtual Candidate?

Whether we are looking for a candidate for CASY & MSCCN, or are helping companies fill their open positions, the process is the same. First, we look for candidates that meet the qualifications of the position. Next, we look at how they describe the tasks and accomplishments they have had in their previous roles, as well as what additional information is included in the cover letter. Last, we look at the overall appearance of the resume. Content, structure, and grammar and formatting are all very important to the creation of a quality resume.

What does CASY & MSCCN value about Milspouse employees?

We value the resilience and versatility of military spouses. They have a strong grasp of the logistics and organization that it takes to work from home while still being productive.  The strong commitment to spouses started at the very beginning.

The organization started in 2004 when the military was in the cycle of long deployments and stop-loss. Military spouses weren’t always in a geographic location supported by military programs, nor capable of continuing in a traditional employment role. MSCCN gave spouses the ability to locate and receive virtual assistance from where they were, and it is still something that MSCCN focuses on.

Do you have any words of wisdom or advice for our job seekers?

The biggest piece of advice is to have an end goal and work towards it. It’s easier to be successful when you know where you want to go. The candidates who struggle the most are ones who are multi-functional… or undecided.

Job Search techniques and training seem like something that is innately ingrained in us, but just because we go through the job search process often, does not mean we are doing so efficiently.
