AFRC to host Home-Based Career and Telework Job Development Program

VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- The Airman and Family Readiness Center is scheduled to host the Home-Based Career and Telework Job Development Program at the 381st Training Group Auditorium, Building 8290, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept.12.

The Home-Based Career and Telework Job Development Program is a workshop for those people who would like to work from home. The program is free to all persons who are eligible to receive career development services through the base.

Seating is limited to 100 participants; those interested in attending are required to register in advance through the center.

Training will be facilitated by Christine Durst who appears regularly on CNN Newsroom as an internet fraud and safety expert. Attendees will receive free copy of Christine Durst's latest book, "Work at Home Now."

"Our goal is to help people who would like to work from home find that 'one' among the many," said Durst.

This training is presented to provide resources and strategies for job seekers to find home-based jobs and freelance projects on the Internet.

"The researchers who put together our weekly telework jobs bulletin report a 61-to-1 'scam' ratio," said Durst. "That is, for every 62 jobs they screen, 61 are deemed 'scams' and only one is considered a reliable, appropriate job lead."

The six-hour program will also include information on how to find companies that hire home-based workers; customize resumes to make them more attractive to remote or virtual employers; work effectively with children in the house; and understand the difference between working as an employee and as an independent contractor.

To register for the class, call the Airman and Family Readiness Center at 606-0039.
