It’s difficult to balance work and family. No one seems to have found the mathematical solution to make all the pieces fit perfectly together. Having a spouse in the military with the transfers and moves that are part of military life can make it even more challenging to find work that fits your family’s needs.

Flexible work for military spousesI have a few friends who have faced that challenge. They moved to military bases with their husbands and had to find new jobs, and then they needed to find work again when their husbands were relocated. It takes an incredibly strong person to be able to juggle the usual chaos of raising children with moving and finding new work opportunities every few years. And, let’s be honest, those work opportunities need to be flexible when you’re single-parenting during deployments.

So what’s the solution? Portable work that can move with you. This includes flexible, remote work and fortunately, the options are increasing. Since technology makes remote work easier and more seamless, more companies are flexing to keep their experienced workers even when they move.

LiveOps takes advantage of technology to offer work-from-home opportunities for independent call center agents who work from home across the United States. These contract opportunities are flexible and portable, making them ideal for military spouses.

Whatever your skill set—customer service, marketing, sales, teaching, nursing—there is likely a remote work opportunity for you.

So how do you get started if you want to find a portable job or flexible work? Do your research. There are many legitimate work from home opportunities—you just need to know where to look.

  • Check out the open opportunities on the LiveOps site.
  • Join the LiveOps Talent Community and we’ll send opportunities right to you.
  • Look on established sites such as FlexJobs and Indeed.
  • Check with the Better Business Bureau if you are unsure about a business or company—you’ll be able to see complaints and resolutions.

Trying to find flexible work that fits your interests, skills, and lifestyle may seem overwhelming (especially on top of everything else that goes along with a move)—but you can do it. Finding the right portable work opportunity now could mean that you can take your work with you on the next move and have one less thing to worry about. Thank you for your devotion to our country. And best wishes in your search for flexible work opportunities!

"I could rave and rave about LiveOps! Working for them allows me to remain a stay at home mom in this economy. If it weren’t for this opportunity, I'd be away from my children somewhere, working in an office, and they would be at a sitter after school. Thank You LiveOps!"
