When I think about working from home, I think about writing. Because that’s what I do when I work from home. Writing can be done from a coffee shop, an airport terminal, heck even on an airplane! So I admit I have a fairly limited view of what can be done from home.
That’s why I was happy to hear from Brie Reynolds from FlexJobs. She gave us 10 work-from-home jobs that really blew me away.
Take it away, Brie!
“The top career categories for telecommuting jobs, according to data from the Flexible Job Index, a monthly report on telecommuting and flexible job trends published by FlexJobs, are medical and health, customer service, administrative, sales, education and training, and computer and information technology. But work-from-home jobs also exist for career fields like performance arts, government and law, science, accounting and finance, travel and hospitality, and many others.
“If you want to work from home, make sure you’re a good fit for a telecommuting arrangement. Business and workplace expert, Alexandra Levin, advises that professionals assess their ability to work from home before jumping in. ‘Successful telecommuting professionals are able to focus through all of the distractions of a home-office without diminished productivity,’ says Levin.”
