Career Webinar for Military Spouses Shows How to Land a Job Before a Base Transfer

Bryant & Stratton College Online and SalutetoSpouses.com Host Free Webinar Highlighting Job Search, Resume and Interview Tips for Military Spouses on December 8

BUFFALO, NY--(Marketwire - Dec 1, 2011) - Bryant and Stratton College Online and SalutetoSpouses.com announced today a free career webinar for military spouses. The webinar, "Score a New Job Before Packing Your First PCS Box," will be held on December 8 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. EST and highlight strategies military spouses can use to find a new job before they arrive at their next duty station.

"Maintaining a career can be challenging as a military spouse, especially while moving from base to base. This webinar is intended to show spouses how they can get a jump on the job search and securing an interview not just after the transfer, but before they even arrive at their next duty station," said Allison Perkins, military spouse and editor of SalutetoSpouses.com. "We are excited to host this webinar as part of the available articles, discussion boards and stories available on the site every day. SalutetoSpouses.com is proud to offer a variety of education, career and life resources for military spouses."

Kristina Saul, a military spouse and career expert, will lead the webinar. Ms. Saul has been a Navy spouse for 23 years and is a virtual event producer for Milicruit, producing online job fairs that help military retirees and their spouses connect with companies around the nation. During her husband's career in the Navy, Ms. Saul held 13 different jobs during 12 moves, including positions in retail management, finance and non-profit organizations, as well as serving as an executive assistant to a two-star admiral's spouse.

During the webinar, Ms. Saul will offer tips for preparing a resume, searching for a job before arriving at a duty station and landing an interview. Specific strategies will include leveraging military spouse networks to make connections, turning a house-hunting trip into a job-hunting trip, increasing a job candidate's marketability and leveraging an overlooked asset -- being a military spouse.

"This webinar will show military spouses how to not only find a job, but how to build a resume to eventually land a job they love. Moving and finding new employment can be a big undertaking, but by planning a job search before the movers pack the first boxes, a spouse can help create a career path that achieves their professional and personal goals," said Ms. Saul.

The webinar is offered for free by Bryant & Stratton College Online and SalutetoSpouses.com. Military spouses interested in attending are invited to register at http://online.bryantstratton.edu/webinar/.
