In a day and age of seamless communication techniques and resources, a work -from -home option becomes an attractive for a wide array of people. However, before jumping on to the band wagon, it is very necessary to take stock of the following:

Educational Qualifications and Experience:

The chances of a person being content in a job go up when he has the necessary background, knowledge, aptitude and liking for it. For example a person trained in health care field will be definitely more comfortable in a home based job as a medical consultant in her field of expertise and a person with a programming/IT background can do wonders as a freelance web designer. Vice versa and it may spell disaster.

A person with a teaching experience can opt for online tutoring; someone with a legal background has options working as virtual law assistant, clerk or research assistant, among others. An experience in print industry can help one start a career as writer /editor. Someone from human resources experience can work as a resume writer, applications consultant, educational recruitment consultant or home based recruiter. Those with technical experience can opt to work as a technical consultant.  A data entry job, on the other hand, will require a high school graduate with good typing skills. Someone with a good voice and expression skills can do work as a voice-over artiste. Someone with the financial resources and available spaces can open up a franchise in her area of interest.

Choose a job that deals with something close to your heart, use your educational expertise and work experience to increase economic feasibly and permanence of your WFH job.

Options for Home Based Jobs:

Once you have decided to opt for working from home, it’s time for you to decide as per your qualifications, resources and options available.

Some of the options available are:

Work From Home (WFH): These will generally deal with data entry, customer service, transcriptions, consultations, billing, research etc.

Home Based Businesses: Any business takes some time to get established, and then generate profits. It will be wise to stock up a nest egg to see you through this period. Any venture will require some kind of capital commitment. You must always discount for some kind of setback. Also be up to date with necessary documentation for your tax purposes. Delivery of work becomes your responsibility, and client will always expect results from you, meet your deadlines. Do a thorough research on every aspect of business. If you have small children do account for unpredictability of their needs.
