How can I get employment in such a remote area?

Veteran

Robert Van Hemel Haugan, MT

I have excellent electronic experience in Radio and IT, but can't find any local employment.
Blackfoot Communication seems to be the only one around here, and Federal jobs seem to be a "invite-only".
I live in the far West of Montana and do not wish to relocate. Most of my work can be done with the Internet.
However, if I get offered to do the Communications for the Law Enforcement, I would wish to be limited to Superior MT.

Robert,
There is a site that lists niche job boards. Look for remote working job boards, especially if you are in IT. If you are able to perform a valuable service on line or via the phone, many companies have a lot of remote employees. I would look through Indeed at positions you qualify for, as a check to see if you are able to be of service off site. If this is possible then re-do you LI profile and personal networking to let people know your value, w/o moving. P.S. my grandparents lived in the Moise valley, so always spent summer vacations until GPA died around 1967. You are remote!

Hi Robert,

Thanks for writing! I'm certainly not an expert in remote work opportunities, but I've heard that FlexJobs (linked below) can be a pretty useful tool when exploring telecommuting.

I've also included a link to some remote opportunities in Montana on FlexJobs. Perhaps some on here might be of interest?

I'm happy to look for some additional resources, but I hope this is a good place for you to start!

All the best,
Caitlin
