Assisting Military Spouses Overcome Employment Barriers
CSI helps eliminate employment barriers and match military spouses with rewarding career opportunities.
Military spouses face unique obstacles in today’s job market. Aside from the inability to find jobs matching their education and skills, they’ve often sacrificed their own careers to support the rigid demands of their partner’s service to their country. In addition, many employers believe a myth that the demands of military life negatively impact the work environment of the military spouse employee, thus shying away from hiring them.
Contract Solutions Inc. (CSI) is partnering with military spouses across the land in a Military Spouse Career Initiative (MSCI). Through the project, CSI will collaborate with husbands or wives of active service members, with employers searching for skilled staffing solutions and with fellow professional staffing firms with a goal of matching flexible, adaptable and skilled military spouses with employment opportunities across the United States.
