Here’s a little secret. Military spouses who have tech skills are finding jobs, and many are working from home. Just like you, they grew tired of switching jobs every time they moved. They wanted to avoid gaps in their resume and desired a steady paycheck. So, even though it may have required a career change, they learned the skills needed to work remotely. Now they have jobs they can do from anywhere, anytime.
If you’re reading this, you’re probably a military spouse interested in finding remote work. So what’s keeping you from your dream? Like most spouses, you likely don’t know where to start.
If you’ve never worked from home, you probably imagine a lot of naps, housecleaning, self care time, and daily excursions. If you’ve worked from home, you know this is all VERY far from the truth and that is takes some skills to be productive day in and day out. Working from home brings a freedom that compares to none but also a beast that has to be tamed. You are no longer governed by internal company structures that provide you systems, work flow, and accountability. Nope, it’s all on you.
