If you show up to the office each day, it's enough to just be there. You probably don't need to let people know if your lunch will be 60, and not 30, minutes. You don't need to pow-wow with your manager throughout the day to prove you're not slacking. But the rules change when you work from home, which means that you'll have to be extra careful to let your co-workers know what you're up to with brief e-mails, IMs and voice mails throughout the day.

Succeeding at the art of telecommuting requires extra vigilance on the part of remote employees--making it abundantly clear that you're not only in the loop, but you'd like to stay in it. Here are some suggestions for making your presence felt in the office, no matter where you happen to be working.
