With US unemployment projected to reach up to 20%, work-at-home jobs will be the new normal for many people. For those who have never worked from home before, especially in a customer support role, it's important to know what you need in order to land a job.
Long before recent events caused the rapid cultural shift to working from home, it was already a growing global phenomenon. In multiple surveys, remote employees named job flexibility and the zero-mile commute to work as great reasons for working at home. Hear from Everise work-at-home employee number one on her reasons.
FlexJobs also came up with the same findings, adding that 66% employees feel more comfortable and productive working remotely than in a traditional office. With all of these benefits, you might be wondering why you didn't do this earlier!
