Plainly put: less time commuting back and forth means less time in the car and more time with friends and family. However, there are plenty of other reasons to search for a rewarding profession that’s close to your house.

  • Avoid the stress and isolation of extended rush hour.
  • Pop back into the office for a few minutes in your off-hours to solve problems or retrieve items without spending hours in the car.
  • Take advantage of overtime without losing family time.
  • Save hundreds or even thousands a year on gasoline; diminish wear and tear on your vehicle.
