As a business owner, it’s your job to make money – that’s a fact.
The Obama era ended with steady job growth for American workers, but military spouse employment did not enjoy similar benefits. In 2016, military spouse unemployment reached 12.04%. That’s three times higher than the national average of 4.7% reported in December. While Obama’s final jobs report portrays a strong economy, it excludes the fact that military spouses are still struggling to find and keep meaningful employment.
Here’s a little secret. Military spouses who have tech skills are finding jobs, and many are working from home. Just like you, they grew tired of switching jobs every time they moved. They wanted to avoid gaps in their resume and desired a steady paycheck. So, even though it may have required a career change, they learned the skills needed to work remotely. Now they have jobs they can do from anywhere, anytime.
