As my husband considers relocating to DFW, I need to find a job. I have the perfect job now, so it's going to be tough to find something comprable anywhere. I am not a brain surgeon, but I enjoy what I do...Desktop Publishing for a translation company and I work 30 hours a week--3 days in-office, 2 days from home. It's the absolute perfect set up for me and my family (3 kids). I do not need $30/hr, but I need at least $15-$20, benefits would be nice, but may not be necessary depending on husband's job offer. The key really is flexibility.

In any event, are there DFW companies (big or small) that might have such arrangements?

why can't do still do your job from DFW--that sounds like a perfect ethernet type of transfer--all they have to do is scan what you need to translate and email it to you--and you do your thing and email it back...

^True. I think that would be the best advice. Talk to your current employer about that type of setup. If they aren't open to that, there are plenty of these type jobs in the DFW area because I know the industry very well.

I'm praying we can work out a 100% telecommute. Realize I don't translate...I do the formatting/desktop publishing. Still, should be just as easy to do remotely. I do it 2 days a week as it is.

Synopsis, "you know the industry very well"...when we move, I will hopefully be working for my company in Austin at least part-time and will be looking for additional freelance/contract work. 15+ yrs with documents. Maybe send me an email and we can discuss further?
