Chicago-Based ISP Launches Strategic Initiative to Offer Employment Opportunities Through Military Spouse Employment Partnership
CHICAGO, IL, October 10, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Zentro Internet proudly announces its partnership with the Defense Department Spouse Education and Career Opportunities program and Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP). Zentro representatives will attend the annual induction ceremony that will take place in Alexandria, Virginia on October 18, 2023. This event marks a significant step in Zentro’s commitment to supporting military spouses as the program adds Zentro to the distinguished group of seventy companies selected to participate in the MSEP initiative this year.
Military spouses have long faced employment challenges stemming from frequent PCS moves and the unique demands of military life. In 2021, the unemployment rate among military spouses reached 21%, as reported by the 2021 Survey of Active-Duty Spouses, while overall civilian unemployment was considerably lower at 5.3%, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
MSEP serves as a vital bridge, connecting military spouses with numerous partner employers who have pledged to actively recruit, hire, promote, and retain military spouses. Since its inception in 2011, MSEP employers have extended opportunities to over 275,000 military spouses, making a significant impact on the financial stability of military families. This initiative plays a crucial role in bolstering force retention and enhancing military readiness, both vital components of national security.
Dave Dobbin, Chief Executive Officer, Zentro, expressed the company’s commitment to supporting military spouses and service members, stating, “We are deeply grateful for their service and sacrifice. Supporting military spouses is not only good business but also a testament to the incredible skills and diverse problem-solving abilities they possess. We are thrilled to launch this significant and meaningful initiative at Zentro that underscores our commitment to supporting our American service members and their families.”
For those interested in witnessing Zentro Internet’s induction into this partnership, the Department of Defense (DOD) will livestream the Welcome Remarks and Induction Ceremony on the Military OneSource and Spouse Education and Career Opportunities Facebook pages, as well as the Military OneSource YouTube channel, beginning at 2:30 p.m. EDT.
