AflacAssist.com serves businesses with marketing and sales efforts.
AfflacAssist.com has seen an increased interest in jobs that allow working from home, as the economy has left many unemployed. By working from home, AfflacAssist.com reports, employment opportunities open up because workers are no longer tied to one specific region.
There are many jobs that are conducive to working from home, AfflacAssist.com has found. While virtual assistants and medical transcriptionists also offer great opportunities for those interested in working from home, AfflacAssist.com has found that job openings can be limited and very specialized.
Call centers are always looking for people to work from home, according to AfflacAssist.com. As increasing numbers of customers choose online-based services, AfflacAssist.com says companies need talented, friendly voices to take phone calls and help customers. These jobs no longer require workers to come to an office every day, where they're piled in with other workers. Today, workers can take calls from the comfort of their own homes, according to AfflacAssist.com.
While many workers are attracted to these jobs because they enable them to be home for their children, AfflacAssist.com emphasizes the importance of keeping the workplace as professional as possible. If children are old enough, AfflacAssist.com has found parents are able to manage having them at home while they are working. But AfflacAssist.com warns that younger children who might disrupt phone calls may need to be set up with alternate care arrangements during work hours. It's important, AfflacAssist.com points out, that phone calls not be disrupted by sounds of children or pets.
Another challenge of working for a call center at home is the focus it takes to minimize distractions. For employers, AfflacAssist.com advises keeping a close eye on the number of calls an employee is taking, especially in the early months. If multiple phone calls are missed, AfflacAssist.com states that the employee might be slacking and may require a reminder that they must consistently be on task during the time they are on call.
AfflacAssist.com has also found that call center operations allowing workers to take calls at home primarily look for past customer service experience. If someone hopes to qualify for one of these jobs, AfflacAssist.com recommends first working in customer service for a while to add that experience to a resume. A college degree generally isn't required, but a high school degree is.
At a minimum, AfflacAssist.com believes only those with good communication skills and a friendly personality should consider this line of work. If workers have an unfriendly manner, AfflacAssist.com has found they won't do well in this line of work. AfflacAssist.com notes that classes are available to teach potential workers good customer service skills, but call center work can be extremely challenging. It's important that workers be able to summon patience especially when dealing with difficult customers.
If workers are willing to work hard and hone their skills, AfflacAssist.com insists there are plenty of great work-from-home opportunities available. In fact, AfflacAssist.com is preparing to offer a large number of opportunities to workers around the country, allowing talented customer service operators to work from the comfort of their home.
