Work From Home Candidate

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 1 3

Work from Home

Did you ever wonder how some people can work from home and make a living? One of the first things to do if you are considering a Work in the Home job is not the type of job so much as if you are a good candidate for it. These types of jobs are not for everyone. If you work from home you need to have qualities as well as circumstances that will be conducive to generate a positive influence on your employment habits.

Do not put things off. If you are a procrastinator, this type of employment will probably not be ideal for you. Procrastination is not something that will disappear with a work at home job. In fact, it will probably get worse and you probably are not a great candidate for this reason.

Make room for the office. If you have the space to actually create a working office space, this would make you a candidate. This is very important to have a place to call your office. It creates a working environment for you to "clock into" when it's time to begin. Working from your dining room or kitchen table could set you up for failure. It will create too relaxed a mood for this type of position.

Be self- motivating. You must be motivated if you want to succeed at this.  There will be no one else to do it for you. Motivation does not come naturally. You have to work at it most of the time. The idea of working from home is not likely to be the only factor that will make you motivated. For some people this comes naturally in areas of work and some it does not. That is why some people are better off not choosing this option.

Avoid doing personal things while you're in work mode, and stay on a regular work schedule, if you want to make it work for you. This includes answering the home phone, checking the mail, watching your favorite TV show or anything that has nothing to do with your job. These are things you can do on your lunch break. Treat it like a real job and if you do this, you may generate enough income to make it happen.

Get yourself organized if you'd like to work at home. Organization skills come in handy when you're working in the home. This is important to maximize your effectiveness as a work in the home Candidate.

Finding legitimate jobs that are hiring is the first step. :) I have successfully worked from home for more than 10 years. Big companies such as Hilton and AT&T are cutting costs by hiring home workers. Cable/phone and hotel companies usually hire home workers for customer service. Also, the TV shopping shows hire homeworkers to take calls. You just know how to find these jobs. BestTopJobs.com has a FREE list of hundreds of LEGITIMATE work at home jobs offered by well known companies. These jobs do NOT cost you money. They are employment positions. Hope this helps!

Hi Ladybugblue,
Everyone creates their own routine. What I find so attractive about growing an Internet business (writing online) is that you don't need the phone to ring and no worries about customers walking in all the time. I love that. I say I'm working for a few hours and that is exactly what I do. Another great point of working at home is at the end of my day at 12:00 am I sit down for an hour and check my email and check to see if I have any comments or messages. Then when I wake up I can do what I need to do without panic of I must turn the computer on within the first five minutes of my day. Freedom but you are right about being motivated and no being a procrastinator.
