When New York-based telephone directory-assistance provider kgb needed to hire part-timers who would work from their homes, it put the word out to the spouses of deployed military.
The jobs appeal to military spouses because they often have trouble finding part-time work that is flexible and portable, notes William Brander, a deputy public affairs officer with the U.S. Army.
He said because military families relocate often, spouses have to search for work in unfamiliar cities, so many of them turn to work-at-home positions they can do from anywhere.
The part-time kgb workers are independent contractors. The organization found them by partnering with the Army Spouse Employment Partnership. The Army created the program in 2002 to help military spouses find jobs.
