Today nearly 60 percent of all military spouses are employed. Many more would like to find an interesting job or portable career - either part-time or full-time - that contributes to both the family income and their own personal growth. They also prefer work that gives them flexibility to manage their family affairs and function well within a military community that prizes happy, supportive, and financially stable families. Above all, many military spouses wish to obtain meaningful employment. First and foremost, this involves finding jobs that fit their particular mix of interests, skills, abilities, and motivations - known as MAS or Motivated Abilities and Skills. But becoming employed is not easy given limited opportunities available to military spouses and the often restrictive nature of military life - frequent relocations, family/community obligations, remote locations, state laws affecting out-of-state residents, and the periodic deployments of family members. Indeed, finding or creating a dream job is often something only a few fortunate military spouses are able to achieve. Jam-packed with essential job search and employability information, this handy pocket guide assists military spouses in quickly finding and keeping a job. Complete with quizzes, examples, and exercises, it helps them: organize key job search information; specify transferable skills, references, and networks; write winning resumes, letters, and applications; conduct job interviews and follow up effectively; and survive, thrive, and advance on the job. It also covers important information relating to: education and training, attitudes and goals, barriers to employment, jobs and employers, federal jobs, Internet resources, employment assistance and appointments and addresses. This handy pocket guide is designed as a personal reference and action companion that easily fits into a coat or shirt pocket or handbag. It should help military spouses find satisfying jobs or careers despite institutional, situational, and personal barriers to employment. Upon completing it, users will be in a much better position to land a rewarding job - one they do well and enjoy doing. Best of all, they will acquire important attitudes, skills, and motivations to continue finding such jobs regardless of their location and relocation experiences.
