Home. Most people have one of these. Me? I’m not so sure. My university is in my home town, but “going home” does not feel the same as it did when I began college a few years ago. As graduation draws near, I find myself getting anxious about where I will end up living and working in just a few months from now. Part of this could be from moving around so much as a college student. From dorm rooms to apartments to rental houses, I have not lived in one place for a long period of time since I lived at home in high school. One place that I have considered working is a large city far from my home town. I would live in a smaller town about 30 minutes from this place, so working from home would probably be incorporated into my new job (whatever that new job may be). I began thinking about the increasing amount of people who work from home. My mom is a professor so she does some work at home such as grading papers, but many of my friends also do work at home outside of their offices. So, I went searching for information about how common it is to work from home. I found the following infographic on Mashable:
How cool is that? Working from home used to be considered a negative thing, and it definitely can be if all you do at home is work. It can save you a lot of money, gas, and time, however, and can even help you eat healthier! Whether or not I end up moving to that big city or not, I will keep this graphic in mind when considering jobs.
