Collectively, they have hired more than 180,000 military spouses.

The free MSEP Virtual Hiring Fair gives military spouses the opportunity to live chat from anywhere in the world with hiring managers who, as MSEP partner employers, are actively seeking military spouse employees.

More than 100 MSEP companies will be available from 11 a.m.

to 3 p.m.

EDT to speak directly with military spouses interested in their organization or job openings.

Spouses may apply for featured CONUS and OCONUS jobs with MSEP partners directly through the event platform.

“We’re proud of the success of MSEP since its inception 10 years ago,” said Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Military Community and Family Policy Patricia “Patty” Montes Barron.

“The MSEP Virtual Hiring Fair is the perfect platform to recognize that success by making it easy and convenient for military spouses worldwide to connect with hiring managers who recognize their value as employees.”

Through the platform, spouses have exclusive access to connect with Spouse Education and Career Opportunities career coaches, MSEP partner employers and Military OneSource consultants to learn more about resources available to military spouses.

Spouses can prepare for the MSEP Virtual Hiring Fair by connecting with a SECO career coach for a resume review and video mock interview.
