Prior to Covid I worked from home. I am the main person working in our house and am a full time caregiver for my disabled husband, so remote work was necessary for me. Plus going to an office that had hundreds of employees crammed in cubicles, coming to work sick, did not bode well with me. Which is partly when I left a corporate job.
I am a digital marketer and have some great skills on many different aspects of marketing. I tried branching out on my own, but networking in my area was tough. I did land a few small clients, but without family and friends to boost my business persona things were tough for me. So I am currently working part time with a local digital marketing agency that took everything virtual. I am just hoping after seeing my work ethic, that I can explain the situation to them when they want everyone to come back to the office. They are a great company to work for and I love the leadership so I am hoping I will be able to stay virtual.
Does anyone have thoughts about this?
Do you like working at home?
Is it something that makes you feel more productive or less?
I would love to hear/read thoughts!
