DoDLive Bloggers Roundtable: Hiring Our Heroes & MSEP

Getting a job in this economy isn’t always easy, but if you’re a military spouse – between moving and family and deployments – finding employment can seem like a real challenge.  Thankfully, there are programs designed specifically to meet the employment needs of the military spouse!

So how do you find out all you need to know about getting set straight on your career path?  So glad you asked:

Today we hosted a Bloggers Roundtable, to discuss the Military Spouse Employment Partnership program! You can find the information you want and the answers you need from the audio file or transcript from this event.

The Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) is a comprehensive employment and career partnership solution that connect military spouses to employers seeking a 21st century workforce with the skills and attributes possessed by military spouses. Hiring Our Heroes is a nationwide initiative by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to help veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment.

Meg O’Grady, MSEP Program Manager, joined Laura Dempsey, Director of Military Spouse Employment Programs for Hiring Our Heroes, for a DoDLive Bloggers Roundtable to discuss upcoming Hiring Our Heroes events on military installations and the wide range of career opportunities available through MSEP.

Joining us on the call were Dale Kissinger, of Military Avenue; Michele Cowell, of My Military Matters; Amy Bushatz, of SpouseBuzz; Dr. Vivian Greentree, of Blue Star Families; and Joyce Wessel Raezer, of National Military Family Association.

    Just wanted to add a comment, and thanks, for this article. As a former Marine of quite a few years and tours, my wife was often in the position of “looking for work”.  I’m not sure these programs existed then but very glad to see them in place now. Kudos!!
