The kids are back to school and the house is finally quiet! It is time to hit the job boards and see what is out there for you to stay busy. As a military wife, I know how important it is to find a job quickly, though it never happens painlessly. In this economy it is hard to even get a volunteer position.
I started looking at various jobs, and found that I was overwhelmed with job boards. I never knew which to focus on, which to upload my resumes to, and which already had all of my information. I found myself discouraged to keep looking for jobs.
Then I was approached by a company called JobPadHQ which is a job board aggregator and job finding app extraordinaire. They understand how hard it is to get a job, especially for military wives. So I teamed up with them and got military spouses a chance to get free membership for a year. That is an amazing deal, because nobody will be in the job market for that long. We get all the benefits of the program, for free because the owner is a Military Family supporter.
Here are some of the perks of the app:
- In Depth Search Tool
- Find and Store Features
- Engage with Social Media Tools
- Progress Reports
- Measure your Momentum against your Competition
- Contact Builder
- Resume Parser
- Online Reputation Manager
- Search Results for YOUR information
- Social Profiles VS. Resume Check
- Job Clipper Add On through Firefox
- Unemployment Report.
So if you are considering getting out there and filling your time with some good work, go to the SpouseSprite.com website and sign up for the Military Spouse Career Development Newsletter. No only will you get amazing tips on resume writing and interviewing, you get a free year’s access to JobPadHQ.
Go now, you have to sign up by November 1st to get the free rate. After that, you have to pay for membership.
I would love to know what your biggest challenges are finding a job. Traditionally, mine have been being able to keep a job – 3 moves in 1 year will make even the most accepting employer wary to hire a military spouse. But we are experienced, we are intelligent, and we have more to offer than many of our civilian counterparts. I would love to hear some of your own job hunting stories.
