INFO: Free LinkedIn Premium subscriptions now available for Military Spouses

imageOur LinkedIn subsidiary announced that military spouses will be eligible to receive LinkedIn Premium upgrades, including access to the LinkedIn Learning library. (Many assets formerly from the acqusition of Lynda.com)

Faced with frequent moves and deployments, military spouses have a unique challenge when it comes to growing their careers – in fact, they are four times more likely to be unemployed than their civilian counterparts. In order to help set them up for success, re-skilling and re-training are key as well as identifying remote and flexible work options.

imageTo help solve this pressing challenge, LinkedIn is expanding our military and veterans program to include military spouses through a new partnership with the U.S. Department of Defense’s Spouse Education and Career Opportunities program. Beginning this July, we’ll provide one year of LinkedIn Premium to every military spouse during each of their moves to new installations to help their career transitions, and once again upon conclusion of military service.

This will include free access to our online library of more than 12,000 LinkedIn Learning courses, including our newly-launched learning path designed to help military spouses succeed in flexible, freelance, or remote work opportunities. We’ll be working to foster this community through the DoD’s growing military spouse LinkedIn group, as well as directing employers to this community as a top source of talent.
