The holidays can be merry and bright, but all that joy can be quickly squashed by holiday traffic! This can be especially true if holiday traffic is jamming up your work commute.
How can you avoid holiday traffic? Try these tips:
1) Don’t Get Seasonal Work at the Mall
This is typically the epicenter of holiday traffic. You could easily spend an hour or more just trying to get in or out of the parking garage. Instead, put those retail skills to use from the comfort of your home. LiveOps is accepting applications for remote inbound sales agents
. These independent contractors can work from home answering calls, taking orders, and making sales for our retail clients.
2) Take a Back Road
If your daily commute passes through a shopping mecca, now is the time to research a more scenic drive. It may take a little longer, but you’ll be much happier driving slowly through the country than staring at taillights on the highway.
3) Change your Hours
Many people shop on their way home from work. Switching to earlier hours can help you avoid the combination of rush hour and holiday traffic.
4) Work from Home
Talk with your boss about working from home a few days a week, or leaving early and working from home in the evenings. If you’re looking for part-time/seasonal work consider remote opportunities like those at LiveOps
, that give you the option to work from home.
Many independent agents with LiveOps virtual call center work from home and enjoy the freedom of being their own boss and controlling their schedule. With a variety of contract opportunities available, LiveOps may be the perfect way for you to avoid traffic this holiday season and beyond.
