About the MEA
The Marine Executive Association is a national, volunteer, non-profit organization of former and current active duty Marines who provide assistance to Marines transitioning from active duty to reserve/retired status, leaving the Corps at the end of obligated service or moving from one civilian career/job to another. Transition assistance includes: Resume review; Job hunting and interview tips and techniques; Job posting by employers to the MEA web site; Resume posting by Marines for employer download; and resume and interview coaching by volunteer Marine. The MEA provides a weekly E-Mail list of all jobs that have been posted during the previous week and resumes posted for employer download, review and screening. Sign up on-line.
Our membership is composed of Marines from all ranks and MOSs who have agreed to contribute their civilian job hunting and hiring experiences to fellow Marines of all ranks. MEA job networking events and transition assistance are held in the DC area at MCB Henderson Hall, MCB Quantico and NNMC Bethesda, Md. MEA Chapters provide job networking events and transition assistance at Camp Pendleton, CA. Austin, Tx., Atlanta, Ga., and New York City.
An MEA chapter is forming in the Camp LeJeune area to provide transition assistance in that area. Chapters are forming near other Marine Corps Bases and Marine Corps Reserve Bases. Additional job networking and transition assistance events will be established as formal MEA chapters are established.
The MEA does not find nor place Marines in jobs; however, through our network of “Marines helping Marines” we assist transitioning Marines toward their future.
