For the ultimate DIY work from home job – try the job you already have!
Finding a job that allows you to work from home can be challenging. However there are a lot of reasons why employers should consider letting their people work at home.
If you generally like your job, health but, for example, have to commute several hours per day to get in to your office, you may be able to convince your supervisor to try out a part-time work at home scenario for a few months to see if it impacts your productivity. Of course, jobs that are primarily computer and information based are key candidates for this, but if one looks at the situation creatively many jobs can be restructured to include at least part of the responsibilities in a way that can be location-flexible, opening the door to a work at home opportunity without quitting your job!
Take the “Telecommutify-your-job challenge” — post your job responsibilities and tasks in the comments below and our community will help you brainstorm ways to work in one day or more per week of “at home” time.
