Military Spouses Exploring Portable Careers

How many times have you relocated? How many jobs have you held in the past 10 years? Do these questions sound familiar? Military spouses face unique challenges when it comes to their professional careers.

Portable careers are a growing trend among military spouses. Spouses look forward to those three little words every three to four years: "Honey, we're relocating." In the past, this meant quitting a job and starting over. Portable careers, as the name suggests, let spouses take their career with them.

What are portable careers?

A portable career is a career that you can take with you, wherever you go. The career you choose can move with you to a new city or even a new country. Portable careers are in “high-demand” fields which allow you more flexibility as you relocate.

If you’re thinking about a portable career but confused about your options, you’re not alone. Our team of Military Spouses, who have been in this position many times themselves, have come together to research and create a free eBook to help you obtain training in the career of your choice. This eBook will teach you about portable careers and how they are changing today’s workplace.
