Home » PR tops lists of work-from-home jobs
One of the benefits of being an independent practitioner is the freedom to work in whatever type of environment you wish. Some rent office space; others maintain home offices. Personally, I’ve chosen to work from home since taking my PR consulting business full-time more than four years ago.
Being a fan of working from home, I was excited to read an article on Yahoo! recently by Kristina Cowan from payscale.com. She identified five lucrative work-at-home jobs, and three of them were related to communications — PR, writing, and design. “Success with work-from-home jobs depends on self-motivation. and professional experience, freelancers say — the more you have of both, the better. You also must be disciplined and skilled at networking, so you can attract clients/contacts,” she wrote. Read her full article here.
I’ve learned that clients, the media and vendors don’t know (or care) if I’m calling from a cubicle or from my patio. It’s my expertise that counts, not my environment.�
