    I would love to work from home but I am unsure what I can do from home? I have a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree and I am also a certified teacher. Any suggestions for something I can do from home?

    Hi Stephanie,

    There are lots of different careers that offer the opportunity to work from home, such as medical transcription. I’ve forwarded your question to an Academic Advisor that has more information on the different careers that offer work-at-home opportunities, and they should contact you shortly.

    Best wishes!

    I am currently on FMLA leave and short term disability awaiting a diagnosis. I have been in banking and have comminuted for over a year causing a great strain on my finances as well as my unaddressed condition. I feel it is time for me to take my own administrative abilities and apply them to a home career. If I am unable to drive or medication affects me at different times of the day I can be productive. Medical encoding sounds perfect but can it work for me?

    Hi SandyDavis,
    Medical Transcriptionists are more likely to work from home. There are a few companies that hire entry level coders to work from home, but they are not as abundant as MT’s.

    Best of luck with your diagnosis.
