I’m a writer, and the money i make depends on the project. i don’t get benefits because i’m no one’s employee, i have clients.

I work from home in a contract, no benefits.  It’s sometimes more stressful than an office but it is pretty specialised work.  I have a Bachelor degree in Biochemistry and a few years of experience in various fields of science.  🙂

ETA: I also work a minumum wage job at a petstore which supplemented my income after my unemployment ended so I’m working two jobs my husband will soon be working two jobs as well.

also, I don’t think that you should search specifically from a “work from home”.

develop a career doing what you’re good at, and then take that to your home. but you can’t really just “look for a job from home”, i don’t think that’s how it usually works

I don’t work from home, but DH does. He is a software developer, makes good money and has full benefits. Granted, he went to school for computer science and had 5 years experience in his field before he was hired for his current job.

If you are looking for work from home jobs, I have found that this website is a good resource:

My Husband and I both work from home. He is a Engineer for an IT company and I do freelance photography ( so all my editing is done from home). He makes just short of 80k with great benefits and what I make can fluctuate from year to year and is does not provide benefits.. Lost of pros and cons from working at home for us personally…if your an extrovert it can be tough. Good luck!

I will be starting to work 1 day from home once LO is born. I could probably do more days if I really wanted, but I enjoy the office environment and will be going down to 4 days total. My experience/location is that unless you are hired as a telecommuting rep from the start, most places want to see how well you work first before agreeing to letting someone work from home. Like building up your credibility. However, looks like some great sites to check out from AmyFarrahFowler and Mrs. Coyote.  Good luck!
