8 Places to Find Work-at-Home Opportunities in Your Own Town

8 Places to Find Work-at-Home Opportunities in Your Own TownBy Diana Schneidman

One of the obvious benefits of working at home is that it doesn’t matter where your employing company is located. You have a worldwide market for your services.

Given that there are certain benefits to having international opportunities, why would you prefer to work for a local company?

There are several pluses to working locally even if you do the actual work from a desk right in your spare bedroom.

The first advantage is that it may be easier to land the job. You may already have personal connections with the hiring manager. Even if you don’t have an “in” right now, it may still be easier to set your sights on what you want and go after it.

The second advantage is that you may be more effective on the job. You have easier access to your supervisor and coworkers. You may be able to attend occasional staff meetings and trainings.

The third advantage is that you may be able to develop personal relationships with coworkers in your company. One downside to working out of your home is that it can be lonely. You can work in the same position for years without developing ties to others.

Working from Home as a General Transcriptionist – Interview with Lisa Mills

Work from Home as a General TranscriptionistTell us about yourself and your work at home journey. 

Over the years, I’ve had a variety of work at home jobs. I’ve worked as a freelance writer, sold antiques and collectibles on eBay, day traded on the stock market, and operated an online used book business. I’m currently working as a general transcriptionist, and I publish a work at home website, Work at Home Mom Revolution, for moms seeking work from home jobs.

Although my work at home journey began while I was still married, my need to work from home kicked into high gear when my husband and I separated back in the early 2000s. I desperately wanted to be home for my three girls during this tough time in their lives, and working from home was key to achieving that.

At the time, I had an online used book business, but I soon discovered that alone was not going to sustain me and my children. That’s when I began looking into transcription as a possible telecommute career.

How did you get into transcription and do you need any special skills or training?

I was taking online classes for medical transcription through Career Step and was doing well, but I had months to go before I would complete the course, and because of my change in circumstances, I needed to make money immediately. (more…)
