Tapping Into the Military Spouse Candidate Pool

When:  May 21, 2020 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (PT)
Associated with  Global HERC Community

Military spouses are a rich – but underutilized – talent pool. They bring experience, training, and dedication to our college and university campuses. In addition, they can help fill critical and hard to fill roles, and diversify our candidate pools. However, bias during the selection process influences the evaluation of their experience and training. In this webinar, participants will learn how to tap into the military spouse job seeker pool, how to market your institutions and positions; and how to effectively evaluate and hire military spouses.
