Have you ever dreamed of setting up an office at home and working in your pajamas? For better or worse, this dream has suddenly become a reality for many people.
While working from home can be productive, it also can be unproductive and even problematic. It all depends on how you approach working at home and the equipment and physical space that’s available.
First of all, forget about working in your pajamas or sweatpants. You should strive to maintain a professional appearance and attitude even working at home. While you might not participate in lots of video conferences, the clothes you wear — or don’t wear — affect your attitude and professionalism. One of the most important tenets of looking for work is to continue the routines you followed at a 9-to-5 position. The same applies to working from home.
