Work-from-Home ? Ideas and How safe is it ?

What are the ideas for a person to work from home ? How does it work ? and how safe is it ? What is the risk involved in it ?

Well, there are two kinds:
telecommute and at home jobs

telecommute requires your current job to allow you to work from home a day or two a week usually via network link on your computer, phone, etc.

most work from home job offers are either scams or very low wages. There are a couple telemarketing firms that employ people to work from their computer at home to take orders like a remote call center.

Hey Gohm,
I was talking about second kind of jobs ie. 100% working from home.
oh tats a better option!!provided ur employer has faith in you,there are many companies who follow these policeis,though mostly they are stuck to sales position

The second half of my post then addresses what you are after. I've only knowledge of a couple of legit work from home businesses here in the US (excluding amway/avon as you leave your house for that) and they are all telemarketing/sales, as in taking orders from infomercials or food delivery. I am also excluding starting your own business as well from this.

I work at home and it's safe 😀 The only denger is I stay too long out walking my dog, cos the weather is beautiful now 😀 seriously, if you deal well with time management it's a perfect solution especially for all computer jobs that demand silence and focusing. If you're looking to work at home in IT industry I can recommend you searched Might be helpful for a start. It also depend if you want a permanent job if you mean "safe" in that sense it all depends on the agreement with your employer.
