We want jobseekers to view this e-course as the launchpad for their telecommuting careers. It's packed with insider knowledge on searching for telecommute jobs, feeling confident during a job search, and achieving greater work-life balance. - Laura Spawn, Virtual Vocations' CEO

The "Getting Started with Telecommuting" e-course was designed with first-time telecommute jobseekers in mind. It's ideal for professionals curious about working remotely—those seeking a career change to avoid job burnout, exploring ways to transition to retirement, or getting back to work after an extended absence due to illness, injury, or family expansion.

After signing up for the “Getting Started with Telecommuting” e-course, jobseekers will receive an introductory email overview of the course including a video guide and downloadable materials. Over a period of four days, with jobseekers receiving one email each day, participants will work at their own pace to navigate the course, which is divided into the following modules:

-Module I: Telecommuting Basics
-Module II: Are You Really Ready to Work Remotely?
-Module III: Finding the Right Telecommuting Job
-Module IV: FAQs and Answers for Telecommuters with Virtual Vocations’ CEO

“We want jobseekers to view this e-course as the launchpad for their telecommuting careers,” said Laura Spawn, Virtual Vocations’ CEO. “It’s packed with insider knowledge on searching for telecommute jobs, feeling confident during a job search, and achieving greater work-life balance.”

Throughout the four modules of the company's latest e-course, jobseekers will be guided through topics like the differences between business opportunities and telecommute jobs, how to establish a home office, refining one's online presence to be more attractive to potential employers, understanding work priorities, researching employers and safely applying to telecommute jobs, and support for new telecommuters via answers to the most common questions Spawn has received in her decade of experience as Virtual Vocations’ CEO.

To ensure the e-course helps jobseekers achieve their maximum potential during their job searches, Virtual Vocations suggests participants set aside as little as 30 minutes each day to read through the course materials, take notes and write down questions and reflections that become evident during study, utilize the modules’ supplemental links and downloads for future reference, and consider their next steps, which the company hopes will include applying to telecommuting job openings via their Telecommute Jobs Database—with 700 new remote and work-at-home job postings added daily.
