The Hiring Our Heroes Military Spouse Program is teaming up with Fort Gordon’s Army Community Service to hire heroes.
Hiring Our Heroes works with local programs to offer military spouses global networking opportunities and career development.
HOH is a U.S. Chamber of Commerce foundation program which connects the military community including service members, military spouses and veterans, with American businesses to create economic opportunity and a strong, diversified workforce.
According to HOH, employment experts report that approximately 80% of jobs are filled by referral. Since military spouses have to start over each time they move to a new location, building professional network connections is challenging.
