Finding Your Community; Encontrando Tu Comunidad! 

Meet Nicole. She’s been a military spouse for more than 10 years. Originally hailing from Puerto Rico, Maryland is now home. 

While serving her community as an Air Force Key Spouse, Nicole knows firsthand how difficult it can be to deal with career gaps. Nicole was out of the workforce for 10 years…and then discovered Blue Star Families Careers. “Verano Bilingüe" was the first program I participated in, and when I learned about the initiative, I had to volunteer.

"Blue Star Careers brings back a "spark" in me. Through BSF Careers, I am starting to feel more confident  with my career gap. I’ve been learning skills leading me to my career development and finally landing a job I want,” says Nicole.

Blue Star Careers' resources and programming are helping her feel more confident and prepared. She’s also learning valuable skills to help her in her job search. She’s participated in "Verano Bilingue" and learned essential skills like tailoring a resume, building a strong LinkedIn profile, networking, and interview tips. 

Besides Blue Star Careers, Nicole has used Blue Star Perks such as Spiritune and Thrive Market and complimentary memberships to Coursera and MasterClass. 

Nicole recently announced a new job: Behavior Mental Health Case Manager at Cornerstone Montgomery, 

Congratulations Nicole. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!
