Work at Home Employment Agencies: How to Get Started
More and more people are considering the option of working at home. There are advantages and disadvantages to this, of course. One obvious advantage is it offers one the ability to set one's own hours. This is not to be confused with working at your leisure because in a work-at-home arrangement, there are still deadlines to be met and authority or boss to answer to. It's not a free ride.
Anybody serious about working at home needs to understand this fact. In fact, there is more and more competition in the work at home environment and if your work and work ethic do not reflect professionalism, your employer/customer has the option of moving on to someone else.
How to Find Work at Home Jobs
There are many sources of work for someone considering working from home. There are even work at home employment agencies whose express purpose is to match employers and employees. This may be one of the best sources of such an arrangement. Long-standing companies such as Kelly Services, for instance, have recognized the potential and established a work at home division that is doing quite well.
There are other sources for matching up with people requiring secretarial or clerical services, as well as editing and proofreading services. Odesk.com and elance.com are just two who act as brokers or work at home employment agencies for people wanting to provide services online using email, Skype, Dropbox or Cloud technology to work together.
It takes some good organizing and communication skills and you should familiarize yourself with the tax laws involved, as you will likely be filing as an independent contractor. There are often tax benefits, however, if you have a home office and conduct your business from there.
Work at home employment agencies will point out other advantages, such as the savings in gas costs which can be considerable. Then there is the saving on wear and tear to your car when you are no longer making that daily commute.
The way most of these agencies work is that they will contact you when they have a job available. They have already screened you and know your skills so they can make appropriate matches. You can accept or reject the job. The employer will communicate her needs to you as well as the deadline. Generally any work product is exchanged as email attachments or through a third party entity such has dropbox.com. Some agencies pay via Paypal; others by a check in the mail or even direct deposit.
You can work as much or as little as you like. The pay is reasonable and based on your skills and expertise. The employment agency will get a percentage of the gross.
Working with such agencies opens up many new and unique possibilities for those needing extra income or even those looking to do it full-time. Generally, if an employer is happy with your work, he will ask for you again and again. So put your heart into every job you do and you will find yourself rewarded by loyal customer/employers that will keep you as busy as you want to be.
