David Sprinkle with Veritas Recruiting Group was on Fox 35 Good Day Orlando this morning discussing working from home.
Points to consider when looking for jobs that offer work from home/telecommuting:
- Know thyself….do you have the self discipline to stay focused and productive at home?
- Dedicated work space…does your home have a dedicated work area where you can close the door and not be distracted?
- Many positions that offer telecommuting are salaried degreed positions…hourly roles typically are done in the office.
- Jobs that are more likely to offer work from home: Sales, IT and Creative positions.
- Statistically people that work from home typically work longer hours than those that go into the office.
