The perks of working from home are vast – between not having to commute, the ability to have a flexible schedule, and being able to spend more time with your kids – it’s no wonder more and more people every day are looking for an opportunity to hop on this, increasingly popular, bandwagon.
Most of the time, however, there’s a perception that work-from-home jobs don’t pay as much as an office job. A lot of people still believe that in order to make more money and move up the career ladder they need to work a typical “9-5” office job. Maybe it’s because of the misconception that anyone who works from home lounges around in their pajamas all day? Or that the people with work from home jobs are mostly freelancers? Or that employers don’t believe there is as much value in an employee who works remotely? None of this is true though!
We’re here to tell you that not only are more and more companies allowing employees to work remotely, but many of these positions are actually high-paying too! More than ever, companies are seeing the benefits of allowing employees to telecommute – saving money on overhead, more productive and motivated employees, etc – and shifting to allow more flexible schedules.
The result: A vast pool of not only work-from-home opportunities, but opportunities that pay extremely well!
