SargesList is growing rapidly and we have a need for local people to help with our marketing efforts at each base. We knew the ideal candidate would have to be flexible, knowledgeable, have a high drive for success and be part of the military community. When we developed Boots on the Ground, we knew military spouses would be the best candidates for the local market manager positions.
Military spouse’s frequently share career stories online and in person. They talk of sacrificing promotions, paychecks and licenses because the demands of military life simply don’t allow them to focus on their careers. Job searches can go on for months after a PCS move which mean more lost income on top of a skinny resume.
Military spouses face high unemployment numbers: about 25 percent are actively looking for work and 85 percent either want or need to work.
The Boots of the Ground local marketing managers, made up entirely of military spouses, will work within their base and surrounding local communities. They will be trained to boost website traffic, sell advertising and spread awareness about SargesList and its services through online and interpersonal outreach.
In turn, the BOTG market managers will make money, build their resumes, and build their own professional networks. All while working their own hours, and building a truly sustainable and portable career.
We are proud to introduce our inaugural local marketing managers and their home bases:
Guam – Stephanie (Air Force Wife) – Visit the Facebook Page
Camp Pendelton – CA - Christine (Veteran Marine Wife) Visit Facebook Page
Hampton Roads - VA – Amanda Loeffler (Navy Wife) Visit Facebook Page
Eglin AFB / Hurlburt / Pensacola – Kari (Air Force Wife) Visit Facebook Page
SargesList plans to expand the Boots on the Ground program into the top 20 U.S. bases and will again look to the military spouses and veterans for hire.
The Boots on the Ground Campaign is another way SargesList serves all branches of the global U.S. military community. We’re proud to fill a much needed void for our men and women who sacrifice so much on a daily basis.
The inaugural team is on the ground but we will be opening up the program to more candidates in the near future. Want to be considered for the next round of bases? Send a cover letter and resume to email@example.com with the title “ Boots on the Ground Program- Second Round.”
