Welcome to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Veterans’ Employment and Training Service’s (VETS) military spouse employment events page.
On October 30, 2020, VETS’ Transition Employment Assistance for Military Spouses (TEAMS) pilot concluded with four employment assistance classes designed to address the employment needs of transitioning military spouses. The response was overwhelmingly positive to these virtual classes!
Over 250 military spouses attended the four TEAMS pilot courses: Marketing Me, Your Next Move, Career Credentials, and Resume Essentials.
For those spouses who were able to attend these inaugural classes, thank you for your interest and participation. We sincerely appreciate your participation and will use your thoughtful and informative feedback to refine the courses.
Stay tuned to this site as we will post a new schedule of classes in January 2021. You can subscribe to receive email updates when the site is updated.
Thank you for your support of TEAMS. Please email MilSpouse@dol.gov with any questions.
There is an executive order requiring federal agencies to apply the noncompetitive hiring authority to military spouses.
In 2018, the Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) released a report on the employment challenges facing military spouses. Read the full report here.
In many circumstances, military spouses who move from one state to another because of change-of-station orders are eligible for reimbursement of licensing costs up to $1,000.
America’s military spouses sacrifice greatly in service to our nation, and the Department of Labor wants to support these families and expand their opportunities for a brighter future.
