The pros and cons of working from home and how to get your boss to allow you to telecommute.
Do you want to work from home? With modern technology, more and more employees are able to telecommute. If working from home sounds like an ideal situation, first determine whether you can, in fact, do your job from home (either full time or part time). Then decide whether you are a good candidate (personality-wise) to work from home. If, after taking these preliminary steps, you are eager to give it a try, convince your boss to allow you to telecommute by preparing a thoughtful, detailed telecommuting proposal.
