Corporate America Supports You (CASY) has been working with the
Reserve Component since 2011 when they created a comprehensive
employment program for the National Guard; NGEN. Later CASY expanded its
footprint through a partnership with the USAR P3 program.
It was a natural progression to explore an opportunity to work with Cadet
Command, which resulted in the creation of the Reserve Component Cadet
Career Opportunity Network (ReC³ON).
Today, more than 26,000 Reserve Component affiliated job seekers
have been placed into meaningful employment across the United States, as a
result of these partnerships.
ReC³ON is a recruitment, retention, and job placement program specifically
designed to support Cadets. ReC³ON's services are available to Cadets from
their Freshman year through graduation and beyond, as they prepare for
and eventually secure a civilian career. All services are provided at No-Cost.
CASY is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, with the mission to provide no-cost employment readiness, skills gap training, and one-on-one job placement services for National Guard, Reserves, transitioning service members, veterans, war wounded, military-affiliated spouses, and dependents, as well as caregivers to war wounded heroes of all branches of service and war eras.
The organization was founded by Deb Kloeppel and her husband, Rear Admiral (RADM) Dan Kloeppel, US Navy (retired), in 2010.
Through programs and targeted initiatives like ReC³ON, CASY, and its partner organization Military Spouse Corporate Career Network (MSCCN), operates as an employment partner to all branches of the Armed Forces, and the respective components, through Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs).
Reserve Component service members face unique challenges, striking a balance between their military life and their everyday obligations in the civilian world. It is not always easy maintaining a civilian career, while also standing at the ready to support state or federal military missions as needs arise. We believe that arming Cadets with valuable employment readiness tools during their ROTC program will prepare them for the their initial entry into civilian employment, as well as re-entry following activations.
