It’s likely that employment will change when a move occurs, especially for military spouses. The information below will provide you with employment assistance information and resources available such as SECO, MyCAA and MSEP Portals.
A major difficulty for families to overcome when relocating to the Stuttgart military community is the limited availability of employment for family members.
While Stuttgart is located in a very large metropolitan area, it should be considered a small town when it comes to the number of jobs to be found in the American community. Spouses should be encouraged to know that jobs can be found with preparation and persistence, but it is recommended that you plan for a period of unemployment lasting as much as six months. Just as in many other small towns, individuals with very specialized professions such as nurses, lawyers, teachers and accountants may not find employment in these professions. For employment assistance in USAG Stuttgart contact ACS, DSN: (314) 596 3360/3362, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
