Hiring new employees is a time-consuming and costly process.

And for years, hiring a worker who has a spouse in the military has been a risky proposition for companies, according to Jacey Eckhart, a career coach for Military.com.

Military members and their families are typically asked to move every 2½ years and employers know that, said Eckhart.

But things have changed.

Many employers are offering remote options and flexible schedules to attract talent.

And many military job seekers want to have long-term opportunities. A recent Military.com survey found that over half of military job seekers, which includes spouses, prefer to work at a job where they can stay for more than five years, said Eckhart.
