The first and most obvious advantage of the job is that you can do it from home. Of course there are data entry positions where you have to go to the office, but one can find data entry jobs that can be done from home. These jobs are usually project based and will most probably have a set date to be complete. Apart from the deadline you can pretty much do your job when you want as long as you get it done in time.
This brings one to the next advantages of a work at home position which is working when you want or can and even better not having a dress code. If you have to go to work in an office you most probably have to wear a suit or follow a certain dress code. With a work at home position you can wear whatever you want. Another advantage worth mentioning is that you are reducing auxiliary costs like gas or transportation money and even lunch money. This does not mean that if you are working at home you are not eating, but when you eat at home you can save some of the money you would be otherwise spending on lunches with colleagues.
Also considered an advantage for this job is the fact that since you can make your own schedule you can have more time to spend with your family and here you are winning twice. Firstly if you work in an office you most probably have to leave home at least an hour before your job starts and this just to make sure you get there in time. thus if you are working eight hours a day you will be gone from work at least 10 hours and maybe even more if you hit traffic. Secondly if you do not have a set schedule you can actually enjoy breakfast with your family, you can spend time with your children, take a longer break or even a nap.
One of the most important aspects is that you do not have to worry about missing any important event from your children's lives. The amount of money you can make can also be considered an advantage in this job. Since you are working on a project basis or similar, the faster you work and the more you develop your skills, the more projects you can get. And if your job is based on projects you can decide when you want to take your vacation and not wait to be told when you can spend time off your job.
There are even data entry jobs that let you work from anywhere you are if you can access an internet connection. It all depends on the types of data entry job you get. Copyright (c) 2008 Paul Ingersole.
