How Work-from-Home Jobs Have Changed Over The Years

Reader Interactions

Comments

  1. One of the best things that worked for me is being a VA for a shopify store, the times are pretty flexible and the engagement is long time so I dont have to worry about finding new projects time and again.

  2. I knew a girl who worked part-time from home as a CSR and I always thought that was pretty cool. I used tech support for a web hosting recently and the guy was at home too.

    Unfortunately locally the businesses rarely offer that as it seems there’s still quite a bit of “that’s how it’s always been done” mentality and they aren’t open-minded to the idea. But times are changing and good to see you and others succeeding and living a better way of life than others.

    PS: If it’s any consolation, my insurance deductible is ridiculous too. Enough to buy a used car. Terrible! 🙁

  3. Great read regarding work-from-home jobs. I myself experienced a “WFH” or what we call work from home job back 2015. I say that everything is a good trade-off. You’ll have no problem sleeping late or worrying about the traffic, pollution, etc. As long as you have a good internet connection you’ll have no problem working from home. Great read by the way.

    • I totally agree with you Kathleen! The only drawback I find about working from home are the distractions. But some things are out of our control and that’s when we use our flexibilty to get back on track. 🙂

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

  4. Great read! I’ve been thinking of switching career and WFH jobs. Good thing I’ve stumbled upon your post and I’ve learned a lot. Thanks! Looking forward for more.

    • Hi Laurel,

      Welcome to my blog! Good luck on finding a work from home job. If there is anything I can do to help, I’m an email away!

      I hope you’ll be coming by soon. 🙂

  5. More traditional jobs are also starting to offer working from home as a benefit. It’s a trend that I expect (and hope) will continue! At this time, I work a traditional job, but work 2-3 days from home and enjoy more flexibility. It’s a phenomenal benefit for a single mom!

  6. Hi Cori, This is really an interesting read. It’s good to know that how working from home is trending by each day. Many of the companies are now started proving work from home job options.

    Well this year I have planned to motivate work at home moms to learn new skills relevant to their career so that they can close the skills gaps between them and the recruiters. For this online learning could be the best option for them.

  8. I was looking into work from home CSR positions last night and I was shocked to see so many big companies hire remotely now, too! When I looked into it a few years ago, I didnt recognize any of the companies except Pizza Hut. Lol.

    • I know what you mean Sam. When I was looking for work-from-home jobs, I didn’t any big companies. Now I see Best Buy, Academy, Hilton – it’s great to see how it’s changed. 🙂

      Thanks for coming by to check out this post and for your comment. Have a great weekend!

    • Hi Krysaten,

      They were kind of pfft with work-from-home employees but they’re coming around and that’s the good news. I think we still have a long way to go in terms of pay but as long as it moves in the right direction I’m good. 🙂

      Have a great weekend!

  9. I’m glad more places are starting to offer work from home options. I am self employed but I would’ve loved to have found a work from home job through another company if I didn’t have my own biz.

    • I agree with you Jenny and if I weren’t self employed either I would definitely get a work-from-home job. I don’t see myself going back into an office job – although if I had to, I would. 😉

      Thanks for coming by. Have a great weekend!

  10. Hey Cori,

    You’re back at it and strong, girl! Well, you know my current work situation. Things are good on the Corporate America job, for now. Who knows what will happen when the next boss change comes. So, I’m continuing to grow my VA business, build relationships, and collaborate with others. Of course, my ultimate goal is to work-from-home but until I can build the whole package, I’m stuck leaving my furkids 5 days a week. Blah….that’s so disheartening! They love it when I stay home!

    Anywho, I’ve been following your wah jobs since the beginning and have referred people to your site because you’re the Queen of job finding, girl! Keep it up!

    Hope it’s not too cool down yonder. We’re expecting maybe 8″ of snow overnight and frigid temps! Woohoo! Snow!! Good day to stay inside and work on the biz!

    Have a great weekend, gf! Muwah!

    • Hey Bren,

      It sounds like you have a great plan gf. If things are going good I would stay as long as I could too but I’m glad you’re not giving up on your dream to run your own biz – I know how much you want to be home with your furbabies. 🙂

      Thanks for all the love and support gf. Hard to believe I’ve been doing this for almost six years now. 🙂

      We’re hitting the upper 20’s for the lows – it’s freakin’ freezing for me – I don’t like the cold so I’ll be glad when this is over.

      Have a great weekend B!

      Cori
