    The demands on modern military spouses often make it difficult for these individuals to seek, obtain, and sustain professional careers commensurate with their level of education and experience. Existing family support systems have done an outstanding job assisting spouses with finding entry-level positions and traditionally "pink-collar" jobs. In Gear seeks to expand the impact of these existing programs by addressing specific needs of spouses whose professional career trajectories are interrupted by frequent moves and deployments.

    In Gear Career will provide a forum for community support, information-sharing, and mentoring that addresses the unique challenges and strengths of the career-minded military spouse.
