A variety of organizations, including corporations, government agencies, nonprofits, universities and others, officially joined the Defense Department’s Military Spouse Employment Partnership in a ceremony Oct. 25.

The 76 organizations bring the total number to more than 610 organizations looking specifically to hire military spouses. They’ve committed to recruiting, hiring, promoting and retaining military spouses, and each organization goes through a vetting process by Defense Department officials to make sure they can follow through on that commitment.

This is the 11th year of the DoD Military Spouse Employment Partnership, helping connect spouses to job openings through their online job portal.

Since last October, more than 40,000 military spouses have been hired through the program. In those 11 years, nearly 250,000 military spouses have been connected to employment opportunities across all industry sectors, under the DoD MSEP program. The program began in the Army and was expanded in 2011 DoD-wide.

As of Oct. 28, there were 587,170 active job listings on the MSEP portal seeking military spouses.
