West Des Moines, IA (PRWEB) April 11, 2012
Prositions Inc., a career coaching and consulting firm, has released a new dual career assistance program (DCAP) to support ‘trailing’ spouses or partners of individuals relocating for employment.
“According to industry statistics, 56% of employees who are asked to relocate for a job, refuse because of the potential economic impact of a ‘trailing’ spouse our partner,” said Robin Salsberry, President of Prositions. “Also, in the second half of 2011, we saw record lows in terms of new hire candidates willing to move to accept employment. This will definitely impact our economic recovery, unless employers move quickly to correct this trend.”
To help solve this growing problem, Prositions has created a new DCAP program to assist partners and spouses find employment in their new location. Considering that some geographic locations offer limited employment opportunities so Prositions specializes in national and global job searches that help spouses and partners find relevant jobs that can also be done from home or with minimal travel.

These include job market research, compensation analysis, career strategy planning, resume writing and editing, as well as, networking and social media, interviewing and negotiation skills and more.
“We understand that a spouse or partner’s employment plays a huge role in whether an individual will relocate for a position, and our DCAP solution helps remove or marginalize these concerns,” Russell said.
