CASY is Proud to Introduce:
Female Veteran Employment Program
Your contribution helps us pro-mote our mission
and reach our goals to help military members and
their families find jobs.
Female Veterans need an employment program that meets their specific needs.
||Women are increasingly a larger part of the armed
||Female veterans do not always identify as
veterans and do not seek assistance under programs for
Veterans – focused outreach and programs designed to meet
the needs of the female veteran population are needed.
||Female veterans are twice as likely to have issues
re-entering the civilian job market after discharge from
military service. Women veterans’ unemployment rates are
a great deal higher than male veterans and civilians.
||Female veterans are twice as likely to become homeless
than women who never served in the military – they are one
of the fastest-growing segments of the homeless veteran
Female Veterans can perform any job handed to them – and perform it well – yet
oftentimes they have more trouble finding employment after service than male veterans.
||In some cases, because of the
type of work they did in the military, they struggle with
how to tell employers exactly what job they performed. The
underlying concern is
whether the civilian recruiter will believe what is on the
resume due to their gender.
||They are unsure of how to explain skill sets to the
civilian recruiters and if the recruiter will find their
skills, experience, and training a comparable fit for
qualifications in the civilian world.
CASY created an employment program dedicated to assisting female
veterans in order to address the needs and concerns of these women,
educate employers on these issues and needs, and facilitate
placement of our women warriors!
Homeless Female Veteran Program
The Military Spouse Corporate Career Network (MSCCN) provides employment readiness assistance, mentorship, job training, and placement for all military spouses,
military family members, caregivers of war wounded (to include mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, etc.), and widows of service members. In addition to our
regular programs we have several employment initiatives focused on military spouses, caregivers of war wounded, and widows to our fallen service members.
