Why a Job Resource on a Real Estate Website?
We are providing a job resource for people moving to Traverse City. Because real estate agents often work with people relocating for their employer or for a new position, there are often trailing spouses who have yet to find employment or how to best use their time and talents.
What is a Trailing Spouse?
A trailing spouse is a husband or wife who accompanies a spouse who is moving for their employer or business. For example, a wife may take a position as an engineer on a new project, but her husband leaves his employer in order to make the necessary move. This husband is now the trailing spouse. Statistics show that trailing spouses who cannot find employment opportunities can be the most significant predictor of the long-term area retention of a family or household.
