Why You (Yes, You!) Can Work From Home
When you dream of gigs that let you work from home, you probably imagine that they’re reserved for those with creative or tech jobs—the freelance writers, developers, and designers of the world.
Au contraire! FlexJobs recently put out a list of the top 20 work-from-home job titles—and they represent a larger range of functions than you might imagine. While the positions you probably expect do show up, there are also a wide variety of other jobs available, including account managers, customer service representatives, consultants, marketing managers, and even business development roles (see the full list below!).
So, what can you take from this list? Well, if you’re really rearing to have a flex gig and are interested in shifting into one of these functions, it might be worth your time. But it’s a good reminder for anyone that you shouldn’t let your job title hold you back from finding a work-from-home situation that works for you. Check out Elizabeth Lowman’s tips for asking your boss to work from home, or see if there’s the perfect job for you at one of these companies that love letting their employees work remotely.
