And if you are a defence wife/partner - you don't even get past the "why do you move so much?".
I've had 3 job interviews this week and all have asked why I moved interstate. Mention Dh being defence, eyed glaze over and interview is gone. The only ones that seem to be OK with it are low skilled positions.
In my ten years as a defence partner I've never been promoted or given extra tasks to do. I've seen people who are newer/less trained move faster up the chain even when I was FT. So I gave up and went PT before we had kids.
Hugs OP. It sucks but unfortunately such is life.
Welcome to Australia - lucky country!!!
