Telecommuters Consider Benefits of Virtual Office Space
I was reading about a company called FlexJobs this morning. The company is an online job service for telecommuting job listings. Brilliant!
FlexJobs works to save telecommuter job seekers time and aggravation by researching and aggregating job listings that are dispersed across thousands of Web sites in one ad-free website. Flexjobs gives job-seekers a way to find legitimate, hand-screened jobs quickly, easily, and safely. FlexJobs screens out online scams and anonymous employers in order to deliver users the best of the best flexible schedule and telecommuting job opportunities.
Now, the next natural step for these telecommuters who are competing for these flexible jobs is to get a virtual office space. A virtual office space can kick up your professional image a notch, or two or three. When you rent a virtual office space, you get a prestigious business address, a local or 800 phone number that follows you wherever you happen to be, and access to a physical location where you can meet with clients if you need to.
A virtual office space can give telecommuters hunting for jobs the edge in the marketplace. Let’s face it, telecommuting is on the rise—and there are more people looking for any kind of job they can get in a down economy. All things being equal, a virtual office can make or break your next employment deal.
Think about it for a minute. Would you rather clients send mail to your home address or to a known office building in your region? Would you rather clients call in to your home, or be fielded by a virtual receptionist? The most successful telecommuters are exploring the benefits of virtual offices and other virtual services.
Flexjobs can get you plenty of telecommuting job leads in more than 50 different job categories. There’s probably something there waiting just for you. But with so many others vying for the same position, you can stand out from the pack with a virtual office. If you build a long-term relationship with a client, you can even set up a virtual office address and phone number in their city and have your mail and calls forwarded to you at your home office.
So what are you waiting for telecommuter? For as little as $50 a month you can upgrade your professional business image and boost your productivity with a virtual office space.
