Security cleared job board treats Transition Assistance Program (TAP) attendees with special goodie bags for military spouses and launch party for National Military Spouse Network


ClearedJobs.Net, the leading online job board for security cleared positions — has been a long-time presenter of Transition Assistance Program (TAP) classes around the Washington DC area. Today, ClearedJobs.Net will be presenting at a TAP class being held at Fort Meade, Maryland.

In the spirit of Military Spouse Appreciation Day, an annual recognition taking place the Friday before Mother’s Day, today’s TAP attendees are being treated to a special extra gift to take home to their military spouses. “We are augmenting our usual sandwich delivery for participants with gift bags for TAP attendees to take home to their spouses,” says Kathleen Smith, Chief Marketing Officer for ClearedJobs.Net. “It’s a small yet meaningful gesture that speaks volumes about how much we value military spouses for all their patience, love and sacrifice.”

The delivery of military spouse-specific goodie bags at area TAP classes is one of various activities the online job board for security cleared personnel is actively involved with in light of Military Spouse Appreciation Day. Its #milspouse Twitter tribute effort to publicly thank military spouses for their dedication the past week has been met with a positive response. As military spouse Mary Chapman personally shared with Smith on LinkedIn, “As a long-time (26 years and counting) military spouse, I want to thank you for your efforts! The public often forgets the contributions made by the families of our service personnel.”

ClearedJobs.Net has always been a strong supporter of the U.S. military. Its participation with TAP, a program offering job-search assistance and related services to service members during their period of transition into civilian life, is just one of many activities the security cleared online job board pursues yearly with passion.


“From TAP classes and sending military working dogs in Iraq and Afghanistan treats and toys to showering military spouses with thank you tributes on Twitter and organizing care package deliveries to our military overseas, it’s all about how much we value and appreciate our service men and women,” says Smith who toils year-round seeking numerous opportunities to support our troops both here at home and abroad.


ClearedJobs.Net will round out its Military Spouse Appreciation activities on Friday by participating in the launch party for the National Military Spouse Network and hosting two military spouses at the party. Tickets were made available to spouses on Twitter.
