You're invited to NC4ME Military Spouse: Corporate America's Secret Weapon for Success webinar January 13th 10:00 AM. Military spouses are often overlooked in the workforce. These are the men and women who remained home to keep the family safe while their spouse keeps our nation safe. They successfully manage finances, understand confidentiality, especially with communications, carry the stress of uncertainty when their spouse is gone, pack up a household, secure travel arrangements, and often, hold a outside job at the same time. Can you think of a better multi-tasker, who understands sacrifice, resiliency, and commitment, as a representative in your company?! Register Here
