Additional Spouse Education and Career Opportunities Websites

From the article,

The SECO program also sponsors two other websites, MyCAA Scholarship and MSEP Career Portal, which support military spouses’ goals to further their education and explore their career opportunities.

The MSEP Career Portal is an employment and career partnership connecting military spouses to more than 160 military-friendly partner employers who have pledged to recruit, hire, promote and retain military spouses in portable careers. The portal allows spouses to set up a personalized account, build a resume, search for available positions and link to MSEP Partner websites to apply for available jobs online. The site also provides additional resources and support services, as well as advice on how to make and manage networking connections.

The Military Spouse Career Advancement Account Scholarship is a workforce development program that provides up to $4,000 of financial assistance for eligible spouses to meet their education, licensing or certification goals. Spouses of active duty service members in pay grades E-1 to E-5, W-1 to W-2 and O-1 to O-2 on Title 10 military orders are eligible for the scholarship. The MyCAA Scholarship website offers educational program information and lists of approved programs of study, as well as approved MyCAA schools. Spouses can also create a personalized MyCAA account and an education and training plan.
