Our Story

Homeport Advantage Job Exchange LLC was founded by Sharlay Smith, who has been a military spouse for more than 24 years.  Sharlay and her family have moved many places, and she discovered very early that as a military spouse, it is not easy to maintain a career or build any kind of stable work experience.  Eventually, she returned to school to pursue an advanced degree in education to become an elementary school teacher, in the hopes that she would be able to have a portable career.

Sharlay recognized that her experience is not that different from hundreds of other military spouses and dependents, but many do not have the opportunity to return to school or change careers.  She wanted to find a solution to make it possible for military spouses, dependents, retirees, and other members of the military-affiliated community to put their skills and talents to work in their host town or city.

That's when Sharlay came up with the idea of Homeport Advantage Job Exchange, a micro-job online marketplace to bring people and jobs together, with a focus on supporting our military families here at home. The company has plans to expand Homeport Advantage to go where our military goes within the United States.

Our goal is to offer services to develop opportunities for individuals to work independently from home, and/or make career connections simply and efficiently.
