Deployments are rough on a solider. Being in a combat environment with associated dangers, while being away from family and friends can be difficult. It’s also especially hard on the spouse who has no control or knowledge of what is going on while their spouse is overseas. They can be waiting days or weeks to hear from them only to get a short phone call with no details as to what is happening in their soldier’s life. It’s important to know how to support a loved one who is waiting at home as patiently as possible for their spouse to return to them.

Networking is crucial to your employment now. It’s all about who you know to land these beginning roles in your new careers. Being a military spouse can isolate you (a lot of times) from creating a social atmosphere that helps a lot of people network into careers. LinkedIn is your professional networking site. While you are completing your degree or certifications you can begin your job search by creating your LinkedIn profile. Check out the site and navigate around.

Starting a MyCAA course while overseas or out of country isn’t usually an option, but continuing certifications or courses that don’t require on-the-job training is allowed. If you want to look into a certification course before you head overseas check out MilCareerEd. If you are already enrolled at a college or university, it may be possible to continue on your educational journey while OCONUS.
