Ashworth Colleges Specialized Career Training Programs Open Pathways to Work At Home Jobs(September 26, 2012)
Peachtree Corners, GA (PRWEB) September 26, 2012
Whether its telecommuting for a major corporation or starting a home-based business, many Americans are searching for ways to improve their quality of life. According to a recent NY Daily News article (August 22, 2012), among the best paying jobs are those involving data and technology where minimal supervision is needed. But what if you lack the career training for a job that is conducive to working at home?
For those looking to make a career change, business and technology-related programs are among several programs an online school like Ashworth College (http://www.ashworthcollege.edu/) can offer and these accredited programs can be completed in as little as six months.
We no longer live in a 9 to 5 world and the ability to working from home can make a significant difference in a persons 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, a leading online college, offers more than 115 accredited career diploma, certificate and college degree programs and as work at home jobs have become increasingly more prevalent and diverse over the past several years, many of Ashworths specialized career training programs are conducive to work from home jobs.
Todays work at home jobs provide substantial benefits above and beyond the corporate insurance package and vacation time. For many workers its 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.
According to workathomeinfo.org, there are currently 30 million home-based businesses in the US. And according to teleworkresearchnetwork.com, 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 youre 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.
Students enrolled in one of Ashworths career programs can receive accredited career training in as little as six months and take advantage of a pay-as-you-go monthly payment plan. These programs are self-paced so that it is possible to get an education without giving up the day job. And Ashworths online programs cross a range of industries, all compatible with work at home careers, such as medical transcription, blogging, tax preparation, catering, interior design, sales, and child care.
I am so very thankful to Ashworth College for all the helpful tips, professional knowledge, and motivation to become a better wedding planner and to always push myself to be the very best, said Katrina Tyson, owner of Creative Blessings Wedding & Event Planning and a current Ashworth student enrolled in the Certified Wedding Planner program. Im looking forward to enrolling in other Ashworth College programs soon.
