While most people are required to travel to their jobs, more recent college graduates are choosing to wake up from their work sites, which would be their homes. According to one website, telecommuting job opportunities have increased by almost 400% over the last three years. So why are more graduates staying home to work? It has to do with the chance of achieving work/life balance.

The convenience of working from home presents more flexibility for graduates. They can set their own schedules and still have time for extracurricular activities, as well as handling other responsibilities. How great this must be for moms and dads who want to spend more quality time with their children. There is another obvious benefit to working at home; you can save money on gas, which is quite helpful at the moment.

Like any other position, a stay at home job should be taken seriously. Your employer expects you to work hard and work smart, while adding value to the company or organization.

As college graduates consider the type of jobs they want, working from home may become an appealing option. This opportunity could result in fulfilling the work/life balance they desire.
