LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional networking platform, is a great place to engage in discussion boards. If you don’t already have an account, you can register through LinkedIn directly, or even use your Facebook account to sign up. Joining the MSEP Spouse Group will help you make professional contacts and communicate with people who have similar experiences and ideas. You can also check the MySECO event calendar for upcoming LinkedIn discussions with MSEP partners.
As a military spouse, you are eligible for a free upgrade to LinkedIn Premium. With LinkedIn Premium, you can compare your education and experience with other job candidates, access over 12,000 online learning courses, message professionals you’re not connected with and more. Learn more about how you can register for this valuable opportunity.
For more information and additional guidance on your job search and networking, contact a SECO career coach by calling Military OneSource at 800-342-9647 or use the Live Chat feature on the MySECO website.
