Hello fellow Encore Hustlers.
Thanks to the internet there are thousands of opportunities to work from home (or remotely from any location). It is win-win situation for both employers and employees.
For the employer a remote employee eliminates the need to have maintain costly office space and provides a workforce with flexible schedules that are especially needed for customer service positions.
For the employee a work from home job means you can kiss the commute goodbye and allows you to use geographical arbitrage to live in a low cost of living region that may not have the best paying opportunities.
The prerequisites to pursuing these positions may include:
- good internet connectivity
- Windows/Mac PC or laptop
- dedicated phone line
- telephone headset
If this seems like a big investment the good news is that many companies will supply the hardware or will provide an allowance. Also many companies may subsidize yourdedicated telephone/internet monthly fees.
Check out this link from singlemomsincome.com that features several companies that are not only hiring for work-from-home positions but also offer benefits, such as 401k's and medical insurance. The list includes:
- Apple at Home
- Carnival Cruises
- American Express
Mr EH especially likes the benefit package for Carnival, that in addition to a matching 401k, includes tow complementary cruises a year and discounts for friends and family.
