can I keep working from home after my office re-opens?

Ask a Manager

A reader writes: I’m a young professional who works with a major company making a very good salary for my area and age.

working from home without a good reason, being the jilted lover of the job search, and more

Ask A Manager

I’ve never worked from home and never felt like my own manager really encouraged it, but would like to start, even if just once a month. I’d like it for a better work/life balance. I applied for a job a few months ago and was short-listed.
