Do you think that working from home implies that someone is less professional or unable to get a "real job?" Do you automatically picture someone working in their pajamas?

As a professional who works from home, I find these misconceptions to be outdated.

LiveOps is a leader in the work-from-home revolution and works hard to change these misconceptions. We believe that businesses can actually attract more professional and talented people when they offer a work-from-home model. Our community of independent call center agents who work from home is proof that this model is a great way to find top talent.

Contracting with LiveOps as an independent call center agent is a big deal. They represent top companies and are the face of our client’s brand. It’s something our agents can be proud of.

Becoming a LiveOps independent agent means you were selected from thousands of applicants to receive an invitation to become an agent. From there you invested a week or two of your time to complete onboarding certification so that you would be prepared and confident to take calls. And as an independent agent you have the prestige of being your own boss - something many people only dream about.

If this sounds like the type of professional that you want to be, then I encourage you to apply now and show the world what you can accomplish!

Sincerely,
Karen Beaman
Director, Agent Acquisition & Onboarding

Work-At-Home Dads are More Popular than You Think

Matt Miles, LiveOps Director of Learning, shares some of the insights he has gained as a work-at-home dad and some advice for people seeking online jobs from home and other work-at-home opportunities.

Almost six years ago I transitioned from working at home a few days a week to being a full-time, work-at-home dad. My wife and I were struggling to coordinate our work schedules with our children’s daycare schedules, and since I had the more flexible job I made the move to work from home.

As I quickly discovered, working from home was not only a benefit for the family, but I was able to be much more efficient in my work. Instead of sitting in traffic for 45 minutes, I was able to start my work day while my coworkers were still stuck in their cars.

Picking my kids up from school and dropping them off for sports practice and other activities, often takes less time than I would spend chatting with coworkers in the break room. Overall, I find that I get much more work done from home than if I went into an office.

I am also surprised at how many people I know who actually work from home. If I decide to get out and do some work from a coffee shop, I always see a number of people from my community who work from home as well.

If you are looking for online jobs from home or other work-from-home opportunities, here are a few things to keep in mind:

Working from home does have its challenges, but I love that I'm able to support my family and be here when needed. Being a work-at-home dad is a perfect situation that benefits both my family and my work.

If you are looking for work-at-home opportunities, I encourage you to check out the independent call center opportunities at LiveOps.

  1. Set Boundaries: Working at home with kids takes a great deal of discipline - remember you are working at home, not just staying at home. Having designated work time and setting boundaries for when the kids can interrupt can help you stay focused.
  2. Be Prepared for Background Noise: Even with the best intentions, sometimes a TV will get turned up too loud, the kids will be shouting at each other, or the neighbor will decide to try out a new power tool. Choose an office space with a door you can close, consider a noise-cancelling headset, and remember the mute button on your phone can be your best friend.
  3. Social Interaction and Communication: Communication is a must to be successful when doing online jobs from home. Without social interaction it is easy to become lost in your work or to feel isolated. Take advantage of technologies that allow you to communicate with coworkers and look for online communities where you can ask questions or share stories and advice with like-minded people.

"I am able to spend time with my husband who is retired from the military. I can take vacations any time of the year without asking for that time off. I can go spend time with my children, their school events, doctor appointments, sports, birthday parties, etc."

"I could rave and rave about LiveOps! Working for them allows me to remain a stay at home mom in this economy. If it weren’t for this opportunity, I'd be away from my children somewhere, working in an office, and they would be at a sitter after school. Thank You LiveOps!"
