Want to work from home?
So maybe you want to work from home. Better still – just work school hours? Working from home for many is sometimes the ideal, perfect situation. But realistically, which are the jobs that can be done working from home? Many of the women who use wherewomenwork are degree qualified professional women but many companies want these women in jobs onsite.
So here's how you get to work from home
The trick is to find companies that have good flexible working policies. Life is often a compromise. Imagine working in the office 2 days a week, at home 2 days a week, and getting Fridays off. Sound good?
If you want to earn a decent salary, a complete work from home situation is not always possible as an employee. If you want complete work from home flexibility, you need to run your own business or freelance competitively with jobs on Odesk, freelancer, elance and so forth. But if you want the security of a regular salary with benefits, then compromise is generally needed.
