If you're a bookkeeper or an accountant, this may be the time of year you fantasize about working at home....if you have time to fantasize, that is. As tax time starts, work picks up for many of you financial types, and there just isn't much time for anything else. But if you're serious about want to make a change and work from home, take a look at these resources--if not for now, for later.
Home-based opportunities for accountants and bookkeepers run the gamut. Every company needs this type of financial expertise, but how (or if) that might translate in to work-at-home jobs differs significantly. Some job seekers might find work with a small local company that allows employees to telecommute. Others might sign on with a major company that makes telecommuting an important part of its employment strategy. There are Internet-based firms that offer outsourcing services for accounting and payroll, which hire remote workers. Or, you could start your own bookkeeping or accounting home business. And, of course, there is always your current job: consider if you could telecommute part time (or even full time) in your own job.
Browse these resources to help you get some ideas for how you might trade in your commute for a work-at-home job.
