My son works in a position that does on-line marketing for internet based businesses. If there was a step by step web-based training program developed for persons who cognisant but immobile - they could learn the job tasks / data entry transactions at their own pace, that should open a few opportunities with internet companies for those who are not mobile, but willing and able to work.

For instance, I've seen quite a few software engineering jobs that required the applicant to have a driver's license and car, or to be available on call for phone support. It's assumed, of course, that anyone who could do software development could easily carry on a phone ...more »
My industry is Software Engineering, which is just a fancy way of saying Code Monkey. In my industry, many technologies are related, but it is hard to keep up with the rate of change.
