A Work at Home Job Gives You More Options
For people who want a work at home job, the opportunities grow by leaps and bounds every day. As more and more companies look to outside resources, at least for parts of their clerical needs, more and more opportunities show up online and offline for people just like you.
Work-at-home data entry jobs are really abundant right now. While data entry jobs have been around for many years, they have changed a great deal due to the Internet. In the old days, having a work-at-home data entry job meant typing on a typewriter and mailing or delivering the information to the company you were working for. Today, data entry jobs are more modernized. They now focus mostly on ad writing and using keywords to focus searchers to the company paying for the ad.
Data entry is not the only field that is experiencing growth in the home working sphere. Other areas that are seeing huge growth spurts include transcription, telemarketing, web designing and programming, claims processing, along with these one can add in billing, book keeping, marketing and field engineer positions.
Work-at-home positions can be found in almost any field. Many of these positions were once only available if you were willing to drive to the company that employed you. But not any more. In addition to being able to work from the comforts of your own home, a work-at-home employee gains the freedom to choose his own work hours. Gone are the days when a rigid taskmaster stands over your shoulder or determines when it is time for you to take a lunch or bathroom break. You can actually control your own time, and take as many smoke breaks as you need to get through the day.
The additional benefit to some homebound workers is that they actually earn more money than if they worked in an office somewhere. Companies are willing to pay independent contractors more since they do not have to provide the traditional benefits package to those employees, nor do they have to maintain a work space for them. This cuts down the costs of maintaining employees drastically and saves the company money, which means work-at-home employees can charge more for their services.
It's also a possibility for a home worker to work for more than one company at a time, whereas with a corporate job you are a slave to one company for 8-10 hours a day. Work-at-home employment allows you to spend the time you once spent preparing for your job on the other side of town performing tasks for a second employer instead.
One lady that I know provides data entry services for one company and provides transcription services for a second company. Each morning, after she takes her children to school, this woman logs into the data entry company's database, where she accesses the keywords she is planning to work with that day. Throughout the day she writes ads and inputs them into the database; this is done when she would normally be stepping away from the transcription to take a break. At the end of the day, when her children return from school, she has accomplished her full work day and produced twice the amount of work that a traditional employee would have accomplished. Plus, she does the laundry in between keystrokes!
Not all companies allow such flexibility, so it could vary based on each company hiring, but most work-at-home jobs are this flexible and thousands of people do it every day.
To be sure, the opportunities to work at home are much more prevalent now than they ever were. With each new field that opens up to home workers or telecommuters, the opportunities increase by the hundreds and thousands. The work-at-home employee now has far more choices than employees have ever had. The only limits are those you place on yourself.
I encourage you to follow your dreams and find the perfect work-at-home job for you. Do it before they're all taken by people who won't appreciate them as much as you will.
