When you meet a friend and ask her what she is doing now, chances are that she will say she gave up her full time, well-paying job at an established company only to be working from home with the same company. Working from home has become the most preferred choice for new parents or even the older generation. The Internet has made all this possible.
The comfort of working from home cannot be compared to working at an office. The advantages that we see are that there is no commuting to and fro from work which eats into precious time when you want to spend that quality time with your little ones. This not only saves time but money too that is otherwise spent on gas and transport. Of course there is also the joy of not having to dress up for work and leave the house at a scheduled time. This helps in reducing stress by half. Some jobs offer the same remuneration with home based jobs as they do with working in the office.
While the benefits of working from home are many, there is also a downside. For people that are friendly and need to be in the presence of people, the camaraderie that comes with working at a regular office is sorely missing.
A few jobs like data entry, legal and medical transcription are web based. Web designing is another growing trend and web designing itself is a career opportunity and people of any age group can try their skill at it. Let’s say a resident of Newport would use the services of web design Newport to build a website for his company and the initial response of customers to the company’s services would more or less be dependent on how good the web design NEWPORT was.
