Build a career that works for you

For many military spouses, it’s important to have a career that can move with you. From an improved remote job search experience to new ways to sharpen your digital skills, we’re offering free tools and resources to help you build a meaningful career, wherever you are.


Begin Your Job Search

Find work from home job opportunities

Military spouses can now apply a “work from home” location filter to job searches on Google to find remote work opportunities. Unsure what you want to do? Try searching “work from home jobs” to explore job opportunities across industries.


Enter your military occupation code on Google to find your next job

You can search “jobs for veterans” on Google and enter your military occupation code (MOS, AFSC, NEC or rating) to see relevant civilian jobs that require similar skills to those used in your military roles.


Find job listings in more places online

You can enter your military occupation code or search for work from home jobs on the career sites of companies like Siemens, veteran and military community job sites like  RecruitMilitary and Getting Hired, and job boards like CareerBuilder. Any job site can use this Google technology through Cloud Talent Solution to display relevant job postings for transitioning service members, veterans, and military spouses.


Grow Your Skills

Launch a career in IT support

There are currently 150,000 open IT support jobs in the U.S. with median salaries of $52,000. Transitioning service members, veterans, and military spouses can get qualified for an entry-level job in IT support in 8 months or less with the IT Support Professional Certificate. No IT experience is necessary.

After completion, we’ll help you connect with potential employers like Google and many others that are hiring entry-level IT Support Specialists. Transitioning service members, veterans, and military spouses may be eligible for a scholarship through the USO, Institute for Veterans and Military Families, and Student Veterans of America.
