About Us

Today military spouses are 24% unemployed and 54% underemployed. Despite sizable efforts by federal, state, and private entities to improve these statistics, the statistic struggles to change due to the very real challenges around maintaining dual careers without further disrupting our families during active duty life. This podcast celebrates significant others (S.O.'s) in various states of “unbecoming” by sharing conversations with military S.O.'s who explain how they are navigating the traditional workforce and actionable strategies from experts that can help all of us along the way.

SO Unbecoming Episode 21: Operations Project Manager, Candina "Dina" Janicki

My conversation with former Microsoft Software and Systems Academy (MSSA) Site Manager now Operations Project Manager for MSSA, Candina “Dina” Janicki features a discussion of the dynamics of transition for military spouses, particularly when it comes to career, and how establishing a framework and identifying things you can, should, will and won't do for your career can be game changing as you go from duty station to duty station. We explore why career continuity isn't always what we think it should look like but is achievable depending on how you look here. Dina and I dive into a few key approaches that I hope will help those of you who might be in a place of transition right now think about how to frame things as you move forward.

SO Unbecoming Episode 13: Accountant Sara Sealy

One of the most common concerns I hear from military spouses is “How will an employer see this big gap in my resume?” I’ve thought it, obsessed over it even, many times. During my time out of the workforce, today’s guest was my marathon training buddy. We ran hundreds of miles together during our shared employment gaps. We also ran our own small businesses. We ran households filled with the laughter and insanity of small children while our spouses were away. This “gap” we worried about was a time of learning, developing new skills, literally growing our endurance and resilience, and I’m so excited to bring you her story of hard work, perseverance, and finding a dream employer. I hope you enjoy this conversation with my friend, fellow Stroller Warrior, Army spouse and accountant, Sara Sealy. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/unbecoming/message
