1 UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) Military Spouses The best choice for your next hire.

2 We are redoubling our efforts to help military spouses pursue their educations and careers We re going to help spouses get that degree, find that job, or start that new business. We want every company in America to know our military spouses and veterans have the skills and the dedication, and our nation is more competitive when we tap their incredible talents. President Obama January 24, 2011

4 Whole of Government Strategy to Make Military Spouse Employment a Priority Priority #3 of Presidential Study Directive 9 Develop career and educational opportunities for military spouses Increase opportunities for federal careers Increase opportunities for private-sector careers Increase access to educational advancement Reduce barriers to employment and services due to different state policies and standards

5 The Challenge There are barriers caused by the uniqueness of military life that impede military spouses from maintaining employment and establishing career tenure, and has resulted in high unemployment and a wage gap that adversely affect readiness, retention and well being of the military community.

6 The Solution Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) A comprehensive web-enabled employment and career partnership solution that connects military spouses to employers seeking a 21st century workforce with the skills and attributes possessed by military spouses.

23 After all, hiring America s vets and military spouses is not just about helping them it s about how they can help you. So I m not asking you to do this out of the goodness of your heart do it because it s good for your bottom line and the success of your organization. First Lady Michelle Obama September 23, 2010 Military spouses have so many strengths They can multitask and adapt quickly we want businesses to see the strength of military spouses. Dr. Jill Biden April 12, 2011
