Portable Skills


Link to Career Exploration Article
Developing portable skills can give military spouses the competitive edge they need to find employment at a new location.

Translating Skills into Employment Opportunities

Military families relocate every two to three years, which means a new community for the family, new schools for the kids and, often before even moving into the new location, a job search for the military spouse. Wouldn't it be helpful if military spouses had portability in their skills, broadening their ability to find employment after relocation? Spouse Education and Career Opportunities' new Web presence — MySECO — may be just the place for military spouses. Through MySECO, spouses can start their journey to achieve their career goals. The resources available through MySECO and our partner websites — Military Spouse Career Advancement Account Scholarship and Military Spouse Employment Partnership Career Portal — provide military spouses many opportunities to learn, advance and succeed.
