Work at Home Accounting and Bookkeeping Jobs
Many times, stay-at-home moms begin their search for a work from home job with a very specific career background. For those who already have experience and knowledge in a certain industry, it is easier to find a work from home job to match those experiences instead of finding work in a new industry. These types of jobs that only hire people with a certain work background usually pay more than entry level telecommuting jobs as well.
Persuade Your Boss To Let You Work From Home
To begin with, many traditional companies are now open to hiring telecommuting employees. If you have a job with a local company or have worked with a local company in the past and for whatever reason now need to work from home, you may want to begin your search by contacting those companies and discussing whether or not they would be interested in working with you as a telecommuting employee or freelancer. Be prepared to present a plan including statistics on working from home, examples on how it can save your employer money, and a plan for accountability.
Start Your Own Accounting Business
Starting your own accounting business from home may also be an option you want to look into if you feel you have the business contacts to gain clients. This would allow you more freedom but no guaranteed income. Decide which services to offer and research others in the area that offer similar services and how much they charge for those services. Register your business and check with your specific state to see what the requirements are. Come up with a business and marketing plan, register a domain name, and begin trying to reach clients.
