Military Spouse “Careers” NOT “Jobs”
MilSpouse “Careers” not “Jobs”
Begin Within places U.S. military spouses in careers… not jobs. We work tirelessly to provide employers the tools and strategies required to attract milspouse talent. We believe military spouse career success requires three key elements:
Military spouses continually demonstrate value in the workplace when placed in careers with longevity, flexibility, and promotability. We bring military spouse talent to your organization through staffing, and by training your internal talent acquisition team to hire, retain and promote upward career progression for milspouses.
Why we help military spouses.
Our Founder and CEO Jaime Chapman served in the Army for 6-years, and discovered milspouse career challenges first-hand after marrying an active duty service member. Jaime founded Begin Within in May of 2016 while working full time as a newlywed and pregnant military spouse, facing the first deployment as a family, and getting laid off on her due date… With her career specialty being in HR and Recruitment, she decided to use her voice to help military spouses.
The company has since followed the Chapman family around the world from Colorado, to Germany and currently Texas. We *know* the career and life challenges of military spouses, and creating thriving careers despite the tough military lifestyle is built into every facet of our business.
Our company has evolved over time. We started out as a career and personal development blog, quickly adding career coaching and resume writing, later providing recruitment and staffing services, and now we train companies how to hire, retain and promote military spouses through our exclusive Military Spouse Center of Excellence™ consulting services.
