As “Enduring Corporate Partners” of the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP), we were invited to attend yesterday’s ceremony in the Pentagon inner courtyard to honor the new group of companies and organizations joining the organization.
Companies like Tutor.com, Amazon.com, General Dynamics, The Home Depot, and a few dozen more were previously inducted into the Military Spouse Employment Partnership because of our dedication and commitment to hiring military spouses and sticking with them as they relocate to new homes across the nation and around the world.
For Tutor.com, hiring military spouses was an easy commitment to make. We were hiring military spouses before we even knew of this program, and many of our great online tutors are military spouses. We find them as a group to be smart, hard-working, creative and adaptable–characteristics that are really important when working as an online tutor. Also, many military spouses tell us that being an online tutor for us is an ideal part-time job because we offer flexibility; their work for us is not imperiled when they move from duty station to duty station.
Today, we welcome companies such as ADP, ClearChannel, Safeway, and TriWest, along with organizations such as the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) and the Association of the US Army (AUSA) to the Partnership, and we look forward to working with them to collectively hire tens of thousands more military spouses.
