If you’ve been wondering how all these find telecommute jobs then you’re not alone. Telecommuting used to be only available to those who can talk their bosses into letting them work from home. Since most companies do enjoy a lot of control, it was difficult to convince them it is the right thing to do.
Now that almost every household has a computer and a connection to the Internet, telecommuting has become more popular. In fact, there are companies where all employees work from home. The problem is, you just need to be able to find these companies.
Sites like wahm.com are available to those who want to work from home in either a home business or through a telecommute job. wahm actually means “work at home mom”. This phrase used to mean a woman who has a side job at home while taking care of the kids, but since the popularity of the Internet has exploded over the years the wahm can be a full time employee of a Fortune 500 company or a woman who owns her own online business.
Another way to find a telecommute job is to look at places such as Telecommute Resource. These type of sites are job boards for telecommute workers. Some of the jobs are only available to subcontractors and others are available as actual positions at a company. Either way, a person wanting to telecommute can find all types of jobs at these companies.
Make sure when you’re looking for a telecommute job that you have your resume ready. Be sure to list the equipment you have available in your home. Many require that you own a computer, an Internet connection, and either a headset with a mic or a landline phone. Corded phones are necessary because of the quality and continuity of the connection.
