Work at home: thought it was good for me
August 30, 2009 12:33am CST
I have worked from home as a contact point for a loan company working 8 hours a day and receiving my salary just in time. Being a mother to three kids, I thought it was a dream job for me. My boss who was offshore was actually a great boss. But I did not last to keep the job for at least six months. While a lot of you are probably looking for anything that would pay you while you're doing any tasks at home, I turned my back on it. I thought it was good for me. But it was a learning experience. I know now the kind of job that would fit me. For those of you who are still trying to figure out if they should leave their ordinary work at the office in exchange for a work from home job, you might want to consider this: Going to the office to work can drag you down, but it gives you an opportunity to be with familiar faces, to make contacts to your second family, to feel alive, to feel the outside world, to meet new people personally who could mean something to you in the future. It gives you a vast opportunity, social and career wise. While I was working at home, it came to a point where I felt so alone and my day was passing by feeling I was living in a cave alone. I wasn't having fun. And I realized what I missing. I missed the laugh with my co-workers, the camaraderie, the short sighs we shared, the short lunches and coffee breaks, the busy mornings, and all about the common things we hated about going to work. I left my home-based job and back to the busy business districts. But I have come to appreciate now and I know I am where I should be.

Well good for you that your experience of working at home led you to realize how you love the working atmosphere of an office. You experienced both worlds and you can compare now which one would really fit you. Yeah, it is sometimes boring to be just staying at home. There are no others around to talk to. You snack alone and you don't get to laugh with officemates. You don't even bother dressing up anymore. I am experiencing that too right now and I also miss working outside my home. Well hopefully, I'll get some part-time jobs again by next week. If not, I'd just have to get on with my life doing my online stuffs. At least I earn though little. Enjoy your work!
