Working from home is great for students, especially since most jobs are not at a set time period. They can work whenever they are free from school and studying. I think it is a wonderful beginning for a student who is thinking of a career in writing. All that experience researching that they already have would come in handy.
This is a really great idea. I just graduated from college two years ago and this would have been so much easier than going to college and then to work. I am thinking about going back in the spring to obtain my Masters so having a work from home job in place is going to work out so much better for me.
