    Work at home options in IT field


    I would like to know what are the options of working at home in It and who
    are the companies that are willing to let you work from home. I am working
    full time but I would like to work part time from Home. Please let me know
    the companies that I can approach for this kind of work and what kind of
    work are they looking for.
    Thanks a million

    My impression is that most companies don't have a set policy about working
    at home. Usually it's done on an individual basis.

    The general guidelines that I've seen are it has to be the type of job that
    doesn't require constant contact, AND there has to be a certain level of
    trust between the employee and employer that the work will get done.

    In the IT field, I think programming is probably the easiest job to do on
    a work-at-home basis. Usually it can be done with little supervision, and
    without constant interaction with co-workers.

    If I were you, I'd apply for jobs like I'd normally do and when you are being
    interviewed, ask them about work-at-home opportunities and see what they
    say.

    Another possibility if you are really gung-ho is to become a contractor and
    offer to do work out of your house on a contract basis. I've seen a number
    of web sites where you can actually "bid" on projects (I think DevX has a
    link to one of them if I'm not mistaken). That could be an interesting route
    if you are willing to forgo a steady paycheck.
