We’ve all had the thought – on those days when the babysitter bails, our hair refuses to cooperate, our “fat pants” don’t fit and we are stuck in traffic for an extra 45 minutes of an already tedious commute – “Wouldn’t it be great to work from home?”
With today’s advancing technology like virtual offices, go to meeting software, email, instant messaging, call forwarding , voice mail, etc., more and more companies are embracing the concept of a “virtual workplace”. The ability to work from home is an increasing trend among companies that want to offer flexibility to their employees and increase their bottom line.
While there can be some drawbacks to working from home and not all “work from home” companies are created equal, there can be many advantages as well: more hours spent at home with family, cost savings on expenses like gas, wardrobe, meals out and child care (if you can arrange your schedule to work when the kids are in school or after they go to bed), and even certain tax breaks for working from home. And, let’s face it, who doesn’t love the idea of a 15 second commute to work?
So, this “Find Work Wednesday” edition focuses on careers you can do from the comfort of your own home – fuzzy slippers and all. All of this week’s Find Work Wednesday positions and thousands of other positions for military-affiliated candidates can be found at our Job Seeker’s page. The first opportunity can be
