Spouses: Share your employment experiences

Military spouses are encouraged to participate in an anonymous survey about their employment experiences.

All spouses of active-duty and reserve members, veterans, military retirees and surviving spouses are eligible to participate in the survey, which takes about 30 minutes and will be available through Oct. 16.

The voluntary survey is a joint effort of Syracuse University’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families and the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA).

Researchers want spouses to share their stories, experiences and lessons learned, with plenty of places in the survey for writing in the information. Spouses must be at least 18 years old to participate.

“We believe this research will provide insight into both employment and career barriers and opportunities for military spouses, including career progressions,” said Mike Haynie, director of Syracuse’s IVMF, in a statement announcing the survey.

The institute will work with MOAA to identify important policy issues and practices related to military spouses employment that will have an impact on both the military and veteran communities, he said.

The results will be released in the spring.
