As a military spouse it can be hard at times to separate yourself from the military lifestyle, but I knew when I was younger that I wanted to go to college and have a career. My goal for this blog post is to send a message to all my fellow military spouses that continuing your education is important, and it can be done.

Search for a portable career option that allows you to move to another location without having to completely re-establish yourself. A useful way to locate these sorts of portable careers is to network directly with the other working spouses who are stationed at your location. Military spouses can be found teaching online (either at the college or high school level), working for online accounting firms, engaging in online customer service, editing textbooks, or tutoring students online.
