Today the Labor Department released a report that showed over 20 million jobs were lost in April alone, boosting the unemployment rate to nearly 15%. These are levels perhaps never seen by any living American. Even as people start to venture out to beaches and parks that are opening up, most people are still remaining inside — spending more time in their home email (i.e. Gmail, Hotmail, Outlook.com, Outlook Online, and other mobile and browser email programs).
When RPost first launched its E-Sign & E-Security (Free) “Work-from-Home” Readiness program in March, it was not apparent that many of those shifting to work-from-home might now be in an unsettling new situation. Some are trying to stay more connected to their jobs working extra-time from home or have been recently distanced from their employers and are dealing with company HR staff. Others may be now thinking about independent contractor work.
Perhaps a tiny bit of good news in a sea of despair is that the traditional work-from-home programs mentioned above will also work from your home email. Here are some tools to think about adding to your Gmail, Outlook.com, or home email now — especially if your new normal is going to be working as a contractor from home over the next few months or maybe longer.
