October 31, 2022

An additional 76 employers joined DOD’s Military Spouse Employment Partnership program at a ceremony last week, Military Times reported.

Military Times also listed the newest employers to join. They represent a mix of private sector, public sector, nonprofit and academic organizations.

Linda Gilday, spouse of the chief of naval operations, told the employers they are “opening the door to a very qualified group of committed, adaptive, resilient and creative group of men and women. They’re educated and trained. They’re just what you need.”

The DOD program is now in its 11th year and has helped place almost 250,000 military spouses in jobs across all sectors. More than 600 employers are now part of the program.
