During the month of May, the Spouse Education and Career Opportunities program office will host several events that we would like to invite military spouses to attend. Please review the following information for more details about each event and for registration procedures to join the discussions.
To join the LinkedIn discussions, participants will need to have a LinkedIn profile and request approval to join the MSEP Spouse Group page at the following link: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/4159976. Once approved, members can join all group discussions hosted by the MSEP Spouse Group. We find the link works better using Google Chrome versus Internet Explorer.
Thank you for sharing this information with your military spouse community and for your continued commitment to support the recruiting, hiring and retaining of military spouses.
