The Military Spouse eMentor Program has created a dynamic information sharing, learning and support community for military spouses everywhere. This cutting-edge, online program allows them to receive personalized job search / career guidance, advice, support and inspiration from more experienced spouses, career mentors and veteran-friendly employers.
The MilSpouse eMentor Program is a partnership of ACADEMYWOMEN and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation's HIRING OUR HEROES Initiative. It is open to all spouses or widow(er)s of military members and veterans. Divorced spouses are also welcome. Representatives of military spouse-friendly firms and other career professionals may participate as career mentors.

How It Works
Mentors and Proteges start by completing an online profile. From there, proteges can search for and select a mentor. When the mentor accepts the protege's invitation, the relationship begins.
The pair work together to establish goals, develop an action plan, and measure progress. They communicate primarily online, but may decide to talk on the phone or even meet in person.
The Military Spouse eMentor Program is powered by:
As Anna’s two children entered high school, she knew it was time to get refocused on her own career. Like many military spouses her resume showed a sizeable 12-year employment gap which she thought could turn away potential employers. Through MilSpouse eMentor Anna connected with 2 wonderful mentors who showed her how to fill the gap on her resume with 10 years of significant volunteer work. They also helped her figure out the type of career she might be best suited for and find most rewarding. Soon Anna had successfully landed a job with an employer she loves working for. In Anna’s words, "I could have had just a job, but with MilSpouse eMentor I found a career!"
