14. What products where you supporting? Do you have a current CV? I was in tech support but now retired.

I had a wonderful boss to work with who understood the advantages of work from home employees.

Because I did that job when I now call for tech support or customer service I always engage in small talk if the chance arises.
Questions like where are you? Weather at their location? How long have you been doing the job? And the all-important one, in this case, are you working from home? Does your employer offer that option?

I have been amazed at the numbers of folks that do have that opportunity has increased over the years. When I first started working from home it was 15 years ago. Back then it required an enlighten boss. Now it seems a lot of companies offer it.

I have a couple of suggestions.
1. put together a current 1-3 page CV
2. consider contacting support agencies for your disability.
3. we had a disabled family member who had a job to call homebound people to check-in on them they had a regular list and a schedule of when and how often to call. Not great pay but rewarding work.
4. for this next one I would ask DU administrators if you could post your CV here. It's possible one of the long-time DU members knows of places to apply that use stay at home tech support workers. DU administrators can you help with an answer?

Good luck and be well.
