Military spouses frequently face challenges in maintaining a career. Constant moves, deployments, and the military lifestyle have resulted in high unemployment among military spouses and a significant wage gap. Since military spouses volunteer at a very high rate, that experience can be transformed into career skills with an effective resume. Blue Star Families has created a Resume Builder to help you get started.
