2020 Career on the Move Guide Military Edition
Military on the Move
Military community members move a lot. When a service member relocates, they have job security built in. Military spouses and dependents on the other hand don’t have the same peace of mind, every relocation brings starting over in a new community, often, it also means starting over in their careers.
At Begin Within, we work with military community members every day who are impacted by relocations, we fondly call moves a “PCS” short for Permanent Change of Station — but there’s nothing permanent about it. A duty station last between two to four years on average, let’s call it three for ease. So, every three years, military families are packing up for a new destination bringing their household goods, pets, kids, and memories along with them.
With military spouse unemployment at a staggering 24%, one of our primary focuses is to transition military spouse careers to the next duty station. We partner with defense contractors that are located on or near military installations to provide transferability and longevity in milspouse careers.
