(Updated June 12 to clarify that DoD is not covering part of the cost of the premium access.)
Military spouses will have free access to LinkedIn Premium for one year after making a permanent change-of-station move, under a new partnership between LinkedIn and the Defense Department.
The program goes live next month on a date to be determined; spouses can visit this link for details, including how to register to receive updates on registration. (Troops and veterans can visit this link to sign up for their free premium access).
The cost of the service is normally $29.99 a month or $299 if purchased a full year up front, said Marquise McCoy, a LinkedIn spokesman. The cost of that premium access will be covered by LinkedIn.
Free premium access also will be available to spouses for a year after their spouse leaves the military. Those military spouses must sign up within six months of that transition to receive a year of the service for free.
