If you are among the large group of military spouses seeking gainful employment in North Carolina, a whole world has now become available to you. The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) has entered a partnership with the Department of Defense to develop new career opportunities for military families. https://twitter.com/AASHTOsean/status/1776293837696094360 NCDOT is now a member of the Military Spouse Employment Partnership, which will help to provide valuable resources for military spouses looking to work within the organization. NCDOT's Human Resources director Amanda Olive expressed enthusiasm about the new partnership in a recent news release. "We’re excited to enter this partnership to help connect military families to good careers and to continue to develop our workforce," said Olive. In addition to providing connections and materials to help NCDOT recruit and retain military spouses, the partnership also gives NCDOT’s Human Resources staff access to the online portal to source resumes from prospective candidates. This partnership seems to be the latest development in NCDOT's ongoing efforts to help our military men and women in North Carolina. A few months ago a study revealed that 7% of the department's entire full-time staff had varying levels of prior military experience.
