I wasn't sure where to put this, in the debate section or the OT section. I wanted some opinions, but would like to have everyone's input, pros and cons discussed.
Are there any legitimate jobs a person can do from their home? I know some ppl work from their homes. Can you discuss the pros and cons of working from your home? If a person wanted to work from home, what field of study would be appropriate.
A few years ago, a local community college offered some certificate programs and job placement for medical transcribers, which included working from the home. They no longer do this. Some ppl say now, employers would rather you work in the office or at best, you have to work for years before an employer will let you work from home.
At this point in my life, I am considering going back to school. I do have a degree, but unless I go on for my masters, this particular degree won't do much good. By the time I earned a PHD, I would probably be ready to retire. Plus, I would rather work at home because I do not have family nearby that I can count on to help me during school vacations or illnesses.
I do work from home now for our business so, I am also a bit torn. I want to out around ppl, yet, I am not sure if that is practical at this point in my life.
