Military spouses – this one is for you! If you want to find remote work and/or start a new business, check out a suite of new tools just launched by Google.org, The Institute for Veterans and Military Families and Blue Star Families. The goal is to help military spouses build flexible, meaningful careers in spite of frequent moves and develop careers that go where they do. In addition to a new work-from-home jobs search filter, Grow with Google released training materials aimed at teaching digital skills and best practices needed to work remotely.
As part of the announcement, Blue Star Families will provide in-demand digital skills training workshops throughout the next year. The new training materials are now accessible to anyone with a web connection. Grow with Google’s free, online digital skills training program – Applied Digital Skills – has released a new lesson to teach remote workers tools to succeed in the digital office.
