Staffing Consultant Jene Bryant, an Army spouse, talks about her career experience with Military Spouse Employment Partnership partner Microsoft Corporation.
Military Spouse Spotlight
Jene Bryant's career path as a staffing consultant took a sharp turn when she met her husband James, a soldier in the U.S. Army. She, like many career-minded professionals, had set goals and mapped out where her career would take her; however, after her marriage, she realized her current job had no telecommuting policy, and she would be living 150 miles, one-way, from her office. Like so many military spouses, she began to question what effect being "married to the military" would have on her career, an aspect of her life that was very important to her. Her questions included "Would I be constantly changing jobs?" and "Would a potential employer understand my circumstances for all the changes in employment as they reviewed my resume?" Then the call came from Microsoft Corporation.
