Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) February 10, 2017 -- In the 10 years since Virtual Vocations’ launch, the website has expanded from a passion project cultivated by a pair of siblings to become the largest telecommute-only job board on the Web.
During mid-2006, stay-at-home mom Laura Spawn – after wasting hours online searching site after site for legitimate work-at-home jobs – recognized the need for a comprehensive online database where job seekers could find and apply to human-screened telecommute jobs in a central location. To this end, Spawn contacted her brother Adam Stevenson, a computer programmer, to design the job board that would become the hallmark of Virtual Vocations, which launched on February 17, 2007.
”In 2007, I was spending over 5 hours a day trying to locate a legitimate telecommute job so I could stay home with my three children, and experiencing a high-level of frustration with all of the abundant scams online. Thankfully, both technology and telecommuting have grown significantly in the past 10 years, making it a viable option for businesses to hire remote workers and for jobseekers to work from home.
Since 2015, Virtual Vocations has seen growth each year in the number of telecommute jobs available in various career fields. Utilizing our company jobs database statistics, we project a continued increase of 1.25% telecommute job growth for 2017. We are excited to continue to be a part of the growth of telecommuting, and look forward to what the next 10 years holds.” -Laura Spawn, Virtual Vocations CEO
