So, my husband and I are moving overseas this year. I am currently looking at contracted jobs with the military bases over there and even had an interview request ….BEFORE the Trump administration….Last night I received an email that stated as follows:
Dear Lahaina ,
Thank you for applying for a position with Marine Corps Community Services . Per the Presidential Memorandum regarding the Hiring Freeze that was issued on January 22, 2017, all Federal civilian positions are currently on a hiring freeze. At this time, your application is on hold until further guidance is received from higher headquarters.
We appreciate your patience and understanding during this process.
Is this what this country has come to? Did the Trump administration FREEZE all contracting jobs?!?!ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I do not want to be one of those military wives that stay home…I CANT be military wife that stays home…I would go CRAZY. Nothing wrong with wives that stay home, but my drives and goals in life are not equivalent to me staying home. I can’t go from what I am doing now, to staying home…I would implode.
Positive vibes, prayers, and hugs are welcomed in this trying time. I have six months until we move…hopefully I can either solidify myself somewhere or I just might have to stay….
