Careers for an Army Wife

When my husband returns I plan to go back to school. I've already taken the basic classes and just need a field of specific study. Being an Army Wife, we move every 3 years so I would need to find a new job in new places. No medical stuff, nursing or medical coding or medical assistant. Tried it but really not for me. I'm an office 9 to 5 kinda gal...or animals...preferably something I can get with 2 years of college. Any suggestions would be WONDERFUL. Thanks

  • The best place that I can suggest for you to get job info is the ACS (Army Career Services). Military dependents have priority.

  • I will be going to school to be a teacher soon. It is great for when they are deployed if you have kids because you have the same schedule and days off as your kids most of the time. If you have any interest then it would be something to check out.
