Robert L. Gordon III, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense (Military Community and Family Policy), recently participated in a DoDLive Bloggers Roundtable.
Mr. Gordon highlighted the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP), a targeted recruitment and employment partnership that connects American businesses with military spouses who possess essential 21st century workforce skills and attributes, and are seeking portable, fulfilling careers. MSEP provides partners with an exciting, ongoing opportunity to network with the Department of Defense and other American businesses to better understand and respond to the employment needs of military spouses.
More than 30 new partners will be inducted at an MSEP Induction Ceremony at the Pentagon on May 17, 2012.
Since June 29, 2011, over 394,977 jobs have been posted by MSEP partners on the MSEP jobs career portal and 20,529 military spouses hired by MSEP partners.
Joining us on the roundtable were Chuck Simmins, of America’s North Shore Journal; Dale Kissinger, of Military Avenue; Amy Bushatz, of SpouseBuzz; Thom Goering, of Navy Cyberspace; Karen Francis, of Liberal Army Wife; Molly Blake, of Blue Star Families; Wendy Poling, of My Military Life; and Kelly Hruska of Military Family.
