Patti Hale of HowtoFindWorkFromHome has done it again. In this post from last week, Patti informs us that many call center type jobs are coming back onshore. The major reason cited: language issues.
When language issues are combined with a lack of understanding of the customer’s lifestyle, slang, and other disparities, the offshore interaction can truly become “lost in translation.”
“While the per-minute rate of a call sent overseas may be 50% cheaper, the initial savings is rapidly diminished and the total cost to service a customer could end up higher if the call runs significantly longer or if the customer needs to call back multiple times.”
Work from home is a dream for many. Home based jobs often give flexibility, greater job opportunity, and some pay quite well. This is a great opportunity to use your education and experience to teach children from home. K12.com is a company that provides online education for children from kindergarten through high school.
Online education is increasingly popular at all levels of learning, from primary education through advanced graduate programs. I am a master’s student at the University of Wisconsin, Platteville. My program is entirely online and fully accredited. Online classes are a dream for full-time workers, the physically challenged, and others with special needs.
According to K12.com: K¹² offers outstanding, highly effective curriculum that enables mastery of core concepts and skills for all kinds of minds. The minds that are superbly gifted–or that are gifted in some areas and struggling in others. The minds that need to use hands to learn on some days, and eyes or ears on others. The minds that move faster or slower than average. The minds that are connected to bodies that need to run off steam periodically, or that are medically unable to attend a physical school. All kinds of minds, not just the best and brightest—not just the ones that are easy to teach in a classroom.
At K¹², our mission has remained steadfast: To provide any child access to exceptional curriculum and tools that enable him or her to maximize his or her success in life, regardless of geographic, financial, or demographic circumstance.
