The Unique Challenges of the Military Spouse

October 31, 2016

Jean South, a new contributor here on the Comcast Business Community, is going to help shed some light on why entrepreneurship may be just the answer!

As a Military spouse you know all too well the career challenges you face when confronted with move after move….do you look for a new job each time your spouse gets redeployed? Do you drop out of the workforce entirely? What options do you have?

Jean South, a new contributor here on the Comcast Business Community, is going to help shed some light on why entrepreneurship may be just the answer! Jean is a Marine spouse (among many, many other things) and she has offered to share her insights and experience with our members.

Here’s a snippet from her upcoming blog entitled “6 Reasons ‘Entrepreneur’ is the Perfect MOS for a Military Spouse”:

In a world where change has become the norm and “adaptability” is the new buzzword on candidate resumes, military spouses laugh in the faces of adaptability coaches! We would be more befuddled if you told us to maintain the status quo than if you warned us of three upcoming major life changes (all in one day). For a military spouse there are no constants other than change and passion - passion for our spouse, our families and our nation. The same is true with entrepreneurship.

Besides being the wife of a Marine, Jean is also the daughter of two Army veterans, and a former FBI Special Agent. As the President and CEO of Your Next MOS, Jean gives companies a competitive advantage to compete for veteran talent by helping bridge the culture gap between military candidates and company recruiters. She also serves as the Veteran Outreach Director for Bunker Labs Philadelphia, connecting with veterans and Veteran Service Organizations in the Philadelphia metro region to provide entrepreneurship opportunities to veterans and their spouses.

You’ll enjoy her humorous and direct style and I expect you’ll get some great advice and tips from her blogs. Look for Jean’s blogs here on the Comcast Business Community.
