Applications for telework jobs–in most cases, working from home on a computer–will be accepted during a screening on Thursday, May 23, upstairs at the Monroe County Courthouse from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Josh Ball with Kentucky Teleworks will be at the courthouse (second floor) that day to screen for over 400 jobs that must be filled this month in the state of Kentucky.
Positions available include customer service, sales, IT tech support and at-home interviews.
Applicants should bring with them a resume, valid ID and Social Security card. They will have an opportunity to explore the possibility of working from home and providing additional income for their families.
“This is a great opportunity for Monroe County citizens to gain employment with such companies as Direct TV, American Express, IBM, and Amazon.com,” said Monroe County Judge/Executive Tommy Willett.
Kentucky Teleworks finds, connects and screens employees and employers, allowing people to work outside traditional office settings for legitimate companies, using internet technology. In most cases, teleworkers work from home on a computer that is linked to their employer.
Kentucky Teleworks is administered by the Eastern Kentucky Concentrated Employment Program, Inc., a non-profit workforce development agency.
