You have been offered what seems to be a fantastic job, but the position
will force you to relocate. This is a big decision, and difficult if
you have already established roots in your current community. Before
jumping at the opportunity there are questions you need to ask your
potential employer—and yourself.
According to a study by nonprofit human resources research group
World at Work, more than one out of three workers are "very interested"
in telecommuting at least on a part-time basis. And about 60 percent of
employers do offer informal teleworking programs. There might
be several reasons you want to work from home, but the key is convincing
your boss to let you do so. So before you head into your manager’s
office with the request, craft your pitch so it is irresistible.
