MarketSource Joins Military Spouse Employment Partnership

by Jennifer Morrell

MarketSource Inc., the proven alternative to outsourcing sales, is proud to announce its participation in the Department of Defense Military Spouse Employment Partnership. The Military Spouse Employment Partnership is an employment and career partnership connecting military spouses with more than 335 partner employers who have committed to recruit, hire, promote and retain military spouses in portable careers.

MarketSource officially joined the Military Spouse Employment Partnership on Oct. 17, 2016, at the annual Induction Ceremony held at the United States Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Jill Biden launched the Military Spouse Employment Partnership on June 29, 2011, to serve spouses from all military services. The partnership is part of the Department of Defense broader Spouse Education and Career Opportunities program, which seeks to reduce the 23 percent unemployment rate experienced by military spouses and close the 25 percent wage gap currently experienced by military wives.

“As an organization, we are firmly committed to increasing employment opportunities for military spouses across the country,” Erin Mitchell Richeson, diversity and inclusion manager for MarketSource. “Given the number of MarketSource career opportunities available nationwide, we are positioned to assist military spouses in maintaining their employment status as they relocate.”

By joining the Military Spouse Employment Partnership, MarketSource is becoming part of an even larger collective effort to support military spouse employment.
