Even before the pandemic changed the way we work, military spouses faced special challenges in finding and retaining traditional jobs. Military spouses face uncertainty every day; their service member could be called in to duty, deployed or delayed from returning home on a moment’s notice. The spouses must juggle being a (mostly) single parent with the demands of their jobs, often without a network of family to support them.
Flexible and remote work can be the answer for many military families. Not only does it provide more ability to control your schedule, it’s also portable, meaning that the spouse doesn’t have to give up work they love when they move to a new duty station.
Remote work can also provide veterans a way to earn income as they transition from their military careers. Remote and flexible work can be a solution for those with physical limitations or who need flexibility during medical treatments after leaving the service.
FlexJobs has been the #1 job site to find remote, work from home, and flexible job opportunities since 2007. They help people find professional remote and flexible jobs in 50+ career fields, entry-level to executive, part-time to full-time, in the U.S. and around the world. They have helped millions in their job search, and now want to provide extra support for the military families that have made so many sacrifices in the line of duty.
On Veterans Day, Flexjobs announced they are offering 50% off a FlexJobs subscription in support of our nation’s heroes and their families. One of the benefits of a FlexJobs subscription is that the company has a team dedicated to screening the best remote and flexible jobs, and to provide information on each company to help you decide if you want to apply. They’ve screened out the scams and fly by night work from home schemes so you can apply with the confidence that you’re looking at a real job with a real company.
The subscription model allows you to choose to enroll by the month or in 3-month blocks – or choose a 12-month subscription (the best value.) There’s even a try-before-you-buy one-week offer.
Veterans and their spouses can verify their eligibility for this discount through ID.me, a new feature just released on the FlexJobs site. https://www.flexjobs.com/military
