All around the country, children have concluded their summer vacations and have headed back to school. Are you one of the many parents who, in addition to breathing a sigh of relief, is wondering what’s next? This may be a good time to consider whether working at home might be right for you.
Work at home roles can vary significantly, from full time to part time, with set schedules or hours that you choose for yourself. There is no one-size-fits-all situation. Some people are able to work from home with their children or loved ones in the house, while others need complete solitude and privacy. Learning more about work at home possibilities and scenarios is a great next step.
We created WAHspace as a resource for people who already work from home and those who are interested in doing so. Basic membership in the community is free, and allows you to build your profile so that potential employers can get to know you, and connect with other members who may already be working from home. Visit the WAHblog and review our posts for tips regarding how to maximize your WAHspace membership and set yourself up for work from home success.
Through WAH University, while your children are learning at school you can enhance your own professional credentials by earning your WAH Certification. This designation helps potential employers identify candidates who may be the best fit for the positions they are trying to fill, and can help you stand out from a potentially crowded field of other work at home applicants.
Keep in mind that while the work at home lifestyle may seem appealing, it is not necessarily a fit for everyone. For more information or to join the world’s largest online work at home community, visit us at WAHspace.com.
