Before you considering seeking new employment you should perhaps look at the idea of moving your work home. There are several large corporations that value exceptional workers and rather than lose you, would gladly look at your proposal. So, if your are a very trustworthy employee, let's take a look at what you need to do.
First, you need to develop a plan of action. Define the job task which are feasible for home work. Don't ignore problems that could arise later and undermine your position. Consider all the problems that could arise and develop a "worse case" scenario and solution for dealing with them. That way when you present your proposal you will be well prepared to assure the company that there will be no unpleasant surprises and should they arise you are well equipped to deal with them.
You will need to be able to sell your home work idea to your employer, focusing on the ways that it will be beneficial to the employer. Remember your employer is in business to make a profit. So you need to sell them on how your move will be profitable.
Some of the key benefits you may want to focus on in your proposal is the fact that Employees at home tend to work at their individual peak hours, don't get paid for long lunch hours, and also continue work on days when they are feeling slightly under the weather. Also, there are great cost savings, from the employer not having to spend money on additional office space, utilities, parking space, etc. Employees that work from their home office, tend to have a much lower turnover rate.
So, if you think you can create a winning proposal and you're ready to give this a test run, by perhaps starting this out on a part -time basis.
The following are some of the companies that offer telecommuting opportunities: AETNA Life & Casualty, ALLSTATE Insurance Company, AMERICAN EXPRESS Travel Related Services, AMERITECH, AMTRAK, APOLLO GROUP, APPLE COMPUTER, AT&T, BELL ATLANTIC, BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD, just to name a few, and who knows if you offer your employer a great proposal, we may be able to add them to the list
