Sept. 26, 2012 - PRLog -- PEACHTREE CORNERS, Georgia –  Work at home jobs have become increasingly more prevalent and diverse over the past several years. Whether it’s telecommuting for a major corporation or starting a home-based business, many Americans are searching for ways to improve their quality of life – and sometimes that means getting some additional career training.

Today’s work at home jobs provide substantial benefits above and beyond the corporate insurance package and vacation time. For many workers it’s the appeal of flexible work hours, reduced commutes and more time with the family. And if stocking feet and a sweatshirt is your idea of business casual then you can add that to the list as well.

“We really don’t live in a 9 to5 world anymore and the ability to working from home can make a significant difference in a person’s life,” said Rob Klapper, President of Ashworth College ( “Many Ashworth students are working adults who sometimes juggle more than one job along with their family responsibilities. At the very least, a work from home job could save on daycare and commuting costs while freeing up more time with the family.”

Ashworth College is a leading online college, offering more than 115 accredited career diploma, certificate and college degree programs and many of its specialized career training programs are conducive to work from home jobs.

According to, there are currently 30 million home-based businesses in the US. And according to, 64 million U.S employees currently hold jobs that are compatible at least part time telework and 76% of all teleworkers work for private sector companies. These statistics show that for someone with the desire to work from home and the right skill set the opportunities are out there.

Making Time for a Career Change

There are a number of work at home jobs out there for those interested in the health, technology and creative services industries, i.e., medical billing and claims, computer service and repair, and graphic design. And as more and more companies embrace the concept, we will see an even broader range of career opportunities for nearly every type of employee whether an independent contractor, freelancer, or full or part time employee.

But what if you’re looking to find a work at home opportunity by turning a passion into a paycheck, seeking out something entirely new, or making a modification to a current career? Before taking the plunge it might be a good idea to assess your skills and consider making yourself more competitive with a refresher course through an online school like Ashworth College.
