Business Week has an article about Homeshoring, a new trend in taking jobs that were originally slated for Bangalore and shipping them to Boise, instead.
Hiring people who need or want flexible schedules in an at-home setting gives groups such as stay-at-home parents or people with disabilities a way to earn money for their skills. Some see the trend as a way to keep from having more U.S. jobs sent overseas. Homeshoring lets companies save money on pricey urban salaries and attract workers whose language, culture, and working schedules mesh better with those of their own clients.
Could this give you an opportunity that you hadn’t considered? Could your second job become an office job? Are there opportunities for you to hack this into your life?
