In this free training, we’ll provide a narrative to understand the following topics:

Military Spouses: 5 Steps to Get Hired

Are you a Military Spouse or know of a Military Spouse seeking employment? Frequent moves due to changes in duty station, caring for children when their spouse is deployed, and having to re-obtain certifications that don’t transfer from state to state are only a few reasons why the military spouse unemployment rate is four times higher than their civilian counterparts. These unique job search challenges require a unique approach. That’s where Hire Heroes USA comes in.

Virtually join the Hire Heroes USA Serving Spouses team for expert instruction to help military spouses navigate the job search process. Attendees will receive resume writing guidance, learn how to leverage their personal networks to achieve employment goals, and receive effective and proven interview techniques from live military spouse facilitators. Searching for employment is stressful enough without the added challenge of being a military spouse, but you don’t have to do it alone.
