Maybe employable military spouses really ARE hard to find. Maybe we military spouses don’t actually apply for jobs. Maybe we military spouses really do have all the wrong job skills, can't spell and go to job interviews with really bad breath.
At SpouseBuzz, we want to know. While I am a military spouse and my business partner is a military spouse and my managing editor is a military spouse and all of my bloggers are military spouses, none of us has ever tried to hire a military spouse from scratch. Maybe it is a lot harder than it looks.
That’s why we want to use the hiring of an Events Manager as a kind of open experiment in military spouse employment. While our parent company Military.com will hire the best person for the job — military spouse or not — this is a job in which a military spouse might bring the kind of deep, broad, intimate knowledge of military life that puts them in the running. Among other duties, the Washington, D.C.-based Events Manager will run our SpouseBuzz LIVE events as well as conduct live and on-demand virtual events for career fairs, the military community and the press. Check here for the full and complete job description. Please pay careful attention to the requirements for the job. If you are qualified, apply online. In the upcoming weeks we will let you know how many applicants there were for the job and about some of the steps in the interview process. We want to work with you. Apply now!
