The Military Spouse Corporate Career Network (MSCCN) provides no-cost employment readiness and vocational training, and one-on-one job placement services for military spouses, and caregivers of war wounded.

Through its employment readiness training and job placement services, MSCCN works one-on-one with its employment partners and funding supporters to reduce the rate of unemployment of veterans, National Guard, reservists, and their spouses by preparing them for their job search (translating skills, preparing resumes, interview skills, etc.) while working directly with corporate recruiters to match these military service members and veterans with jobs that complement and fully utilize their qualifications, experience, and education. Individual programs are also in place to serve caregivers to the war-wounded – the extremely under-served, military-affiliated applicants who have exceptional difficulty finding employment.

If I asked a group of people that ranged in age if they would like to play a game of “PIG” or “HORSE” outside (and I had a basketball in my hand), how many would know what I was talking about? You might be surprised that some children might ask, “You want us to make pig or horse noises as we shoot hoops?” Some of you may laugh, but this was an honest question from some of the neighborhood children that come over to play with my kids.

Through my studies in education and working with students in classrooms, technology certainly brings a new perspective to learning. Students not only have the ability to research topics instantly through the use of the internet, but they can also talk to other students in different countries, take virtual field trips to museums that are in other cities, and write or edit papers quickly.
