Some of the barriers preventing military spouses from maintaining a career are starting to fall, reports American Forces Press Service. Sixteen states have passed laws to improve professional license portability, while 11 others have legislation pending. Also DOD’s Military Spouse Employment Partnership recently announced it has a total of 128 employer partners that post jobs on the program’s site specifically for military spouses. The companies allow hired spouses to retain their jobs after they move. The gains are due to the efforts of DOD’s Military Community and Family Policy office, the First Lady’s Joining Forces campaign and military spouses themselves, according to the story.
