Your military service matters to these employers:
It’s typical for military spouses to be adaptable, resilient in the face of change, and creative at solving problems. They often face unemployment rates that are much higher than the general population. It’s possible that in the wake of COVID-19, spouses may experience unemployment rates higher than 30%! Employers, take note: Military spouses and immediate family members are a smart, capable talent pool that takes initiative and understands the value of teamwork.
Multi-tasking and managing multiple projects is also no problem for military spouses. Spouses often juggle being the primary caregiver for children in the home, running the household solo when their spouse is deployed, and dealing with the stresses and pressures that are part of the military lifestyle. For family members, the core values of military service include assuming responsibility and accountability for others—a highly valued and transferable skill in the world of work.
Military spouses are also a well-educated group, with many holding college degrees, advanced degrees, and speciality certifications. In many cases, the mobile lifestyle of military service adds to the diverse skills military spouses and family members can contribute to an employer, and enhances their effectiveness in the workplace.
