Best Jobs For Military Spouses in 2021
Sometimes the best jobs for military spouses are the ones that don’t jump out at you. Here is what I mean. As a military spouse, you have a very unique situation when it comes to employment.
You know as well as I do that every time you get settled into a location about 3 years later you will be packing up to move again.
Don’t you just love the military? I feel for you as I am retired Navy, and I averaged 2.5 years in every location.
Not only is the constant moving a problem but the deployments that your military spouse has to randomly make makes it difficult to work full time if you have kids.
Which as you know, can create a financial burden on your family. So what do you do for steady employment so your family can have a stable income?
I found some of the best jobs for military spouses that should help with the finances. Some of these careers can follow you where ever you go.

In some cases, you can even turn your hobby into a business. If you have a desire to own your own business.
Online businesses of any type are one of the best jobs for military spouses mainly for the flexibility of moving around.
Thrift Store Flipping
You can some amazing deals at thrift stores. These deals can be flipped and sold on sites such as eBay and Facebook Marketplace for a profit.
I once made $75 on a book I found at Goodwill for $0.50. Spoiler alert, not all deals will net you that much money. However, with a little bit of time and effort, you can easily turn everyday items that you find into a decent profit.
The best part is there is no training and no license required.
As a military spouse, you are already conditioned to make things happen for your family. I don’t have to tell you how strong you are, you already know it.
Most people don’t have a clue what it takes to be a military spouse. What I mean is sometimes you can share all of the responsibilities with your spouse and sometimes you have to go at it alone when your spouse is deployed.
It is a tough job and not everyone can do it.
I salute you and your military spouse for all that you do. Without your strength and support your spouse could not perform his job the way he needs to.
Take some of my suggestions to heart and try out a few. You will find something that works great for you and your family.
