The Reserve Component Cadet Career Opportunity Network (ReC³ON) is a
web-based support program designed to help Cadets who will serve in the Reserve Component (RC) to prepare for a civilian career.
This program is designed to work with ROTC Cadets throughout each school year, leading up to, and then following graduation. ReC³ON was co-designed by the U.S. Army Cadet Command and Corporate America Supports You (CASY), a leading military non-profit organization focused on employing our military, veterans, and spouses.
In just a short time our team has already placed (13) Cadets into jobs (2 are still in college), (2) more into internships, and we are actively working Cadets, with spouses of Cadets, PMS’s who are separating from service and even dependents to a PMS.
The ReC³ON team is poised to support all Universities in the program and available to brief on the benefits of ReC³ON. Cadets as well as ROTC leadership can leverage our system and programs to gain an edge in the already competitive job market. As a PMS you are the tip of the spear and ReC³ON and Cadet Command will rely upon every PMS to simply get the word out to Cadets.
Go into your next performance review showing how many Cadets you helped through internships, apprenticeships, and employment. That’s real impact, something you and your Command can take pride in!
PMS success story of the month!
Exciting things are happening at ReC3ON! This month we were able to assist University of Georgia’s APMS Lincoln Lanier!
“I am retiring after 21 years of service, having been both an enlisted Soldier and an officer. As with any transitioning Soldier, it
can be nerve racking not knowing what you don’t know about the future. Fortunately, there exists organizations like CASY that assists [all branches of service] Reservist, National Guardsmen, SROTC Cadets branching National Guard or Reserve, and veterans in finding meaningful employment in corporate America at no cost to them.
CASY facilitates opportunities such as resume writing, job searching, and veteran’s training opportunities. One such opportunity that was afforded to me was partaking in the IBM i2-Analyst Notebook training in Tampa, FL at no cost to me. IBM sponsored the course which would have cost over $2,000. I appreciate the opportunity and would recommend all to participate in their [CASY’s] support services.”
