In Gear Career: Serving Career-Minded Military Spouses Around the World
In Gear Career provides military spouses with career development and networking opportunities in military communities around the world. Now a part of Hiring Our Heroes' Military Spouse Program, In Gear Career's growing network will empower military spouses at a grassroots level year-round.
Around 80% of jobs fill by referral. Military spouses start from scratch each time they move, building career networks in new locations every couple of years. To address this need, In Gear Career has more than 22 local chapters throughout the U.S. and Europe. Chapters connect military spouses with established networks, giving military spouses access to local business leaders, peers, and mentors, and support in their career development.
In Gear Career also provides military spouses with online career development resources. Military spouses in similar occupations support each other in online communities and share career advice to enhance the career prospects of members of the community.
