The advent of technology has caused a beautiful thing to happen. People can get up, get a cup of coffee, step into a home office and begin their workday — all without changing out of their pajamas.
The Internet and easy communication tools have made it possible for teams to coordinate a project from various locations across town — or around the world. Gone are the days when everyone has to be in the same room to work together.
Why Remote-Based Customer Support Jobs?
Customer support jobs easily fall into this category. Most customers are calling or emailing their questions anyway. They’re not going to a physical location to ask about fees on their credit card or find out why their computer won’t turn on.
In fact, for years companies have been outsourcing their customer service jobs to call centers in other countries where the cost of labor is less expensive.
Now there is a new shift. Why pay for a call center location? As long as everyone has a reliable Internet connection, the work can be done from anywhere.
Of course, customer service jobs aren’t limited to call center-type work. IT support, sales, travel planning, career coaching, account managing, and more can all be done remotely.
What’s more, remote workers aren’t limited to customer service jobs. In fact, 43% of all Americans work from home at least occasionally.
There’s even some evidence to indicate that those who work from home make more money than commuters. This largely has to do with the fact that white-collar tech jobs are more conducive to working from home than blue-collar work.
However, even if you make the same salary working at a call center as you do working from home, your expenses are lower. You don’t have to pay to commute every day, buy and dry clean your work clothes, and you’ll be less likely to buy lunch out every day.
That’ll save you a bundle right there.
How to Get a Remote-Based Customer Support Job?
Now you’re excited about the prospect of working from home. No more 5 am wake up calls. No more frustration when you have a bad hair day. No more tight, uncomfortable leather shoes. You simply get up, grab a snack, and begin your day.
