Working for Horizon Systems Corp. has been a wonderful experience. I've worked for HSC for 11 years: at first working part-time while in college, and now currently full-time.
This is a telecommute position, which offers a flexible schedule and excellent benefits. I've become self-proficient with Windows systems, Microsoft 2010 suite, email, internet research and ArcGIS software.
A typical day begins with logging into my workstation and checking in with my coworkers via Skype. I have a project list which is updated weekly, containing tasks, contract/project descriptions and deadlines. I then log-in to one or several virtual machines (VMs) on the company network and complete the tasks as directed. Every week we have company conference call or Webex meeting to discuss the progress of contracts. Additional meetings are held for training and other purposes.
At first it was a challenge to work from home. However, it's taught me to be disciplined, self-motivated, manage my time and be organized.
