May is National Military Appreciation Month

Posted by Rob Riggins

ClearedJobs.Net encourages everyone to honor our country’s service members, veterans and their families during National Military Appreciation Month. From Military Spouse Appreciation Day to Armed Forces Day to Memorial Day, it’s a month to remember those who serve and have served our country.

Military Spouse Appreciation Day

ClearedJobs.Net uses Twitter to honor military spouses from all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. This year’s @MilSpouseDay initiative is Monday, April 30 through Military Spouse Appreciation Day (MSAD) on Friday, May 11. To follow ClearedJobs.Net’s military spouse appreciation effort, visit the Twitter feed. To honor a military spouse who is on twitter, send a tweet to @MilSpouseDay.

Military to Civilian Transition Tips

Each week day in May ClearedJobs.Net will feature information to help transitioning military in their move to the civilian world. From first-hand veterans’ stories to job search tips, we highlight practical information to assist service members in their transition. These stories will be found on this blog.

Classes for Transitioning Military

ClearedJobs.Net also continues its popular Using Social Media in Your Job Search presentations in May. This class guides transitioning military on how they can use social media to find a security cleared job. In May this presentation will be made to Washington, DC area TAP/ACAP classes at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, the Naval Academy, Marine Corps Base Quantico and Fort Belvoir.

Undefeated 2-day Ride Fundraiser for Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation

ClearedJobs.Net will again sponsor the Undefeated 2-day Ride to benefit the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation. May kicks off fundraising for this cycling event held in Southern California from October 6-7, which is open to all riders. Last year’s event raised nearly $220,000 for the foundation, and this year’s goal is to raise $250,000. For more information or to participate, click here.
