The Spouse Education and Career Opportunities program just launched several new tools and resources, making it even easier for you to manage your education and career goals and research the most up-to-date information for employment trends and job skills.
The SECO program provides expert education and career guidance to military spouses worldwide and offers comprehensive information, tools and resources to support SECO's four lifecycle stages: career exploration, education and training, employment readiness and career connections.

Using the tools and assessments, you can begin to explore your interests, skills, passions and personality type to determine the best fit for education and career choices and start to build a portable and meaningful career path you can take with you as you move. The new features on MySECO are available only to authenticated users, so take time to register today and begin your journey to learn, advance and succeed.
