March: In Like a Lion, Out with a Job!

Spring is nearly here. After a mild winter in many parts of the nation, you may be itching to get out of the house and back into the workforce.


Military spouse-only job fairs should be your first stop.


The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation hosts several job fairs around the nation each month. They target military communities and invite only military members and their spouses.


The companies who attend, many of which are found nationwide and globally, are there because they want to hire military spouses. They know the experience, knowledge and dedication that spouses bring to the workforce. And they already understand that you may be gone again in three years, or less.


So, polish up that resume, pick out a business-like outfit and don't forget to click the link and register. These job fairs fill up quickly and rarely take attendees at the door.


Good luck!
