Hi and welcome to the board! First of all, congratulations of finishing your first project and may it be the first of many for you! :smileywink:
Have you considered posting your resume on places like Monster.com and Careerbuilders.com? It's a great way to get your information out there for those companies who are looking for someone. And since you have current experience under your belt, it's sure to make your resume more appealing. I found this article that has some really good tips on
Hi recycled mom and thanks so much for your message!
Even though I do currently have my resume posted on both of those sites, perhaps it may be a good idea to update it to include my current experience/consulting work.
I have also applied to a local retail store, (right across the street from us literally) as they are looking for someone to work two very early morning shifts stocking.
Have you tried www.elance.com?
I have a friend that makes a steady income with jobs through there...though its a lot of work, what she's doing, since she's doing writing jobs.
I also recently stumbled upon an iPhone app that has opened up a couple more of these to me...the app is called iFreelancer: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ifreelancer/id323243733?mt=8
And you can set it up to check not only elance.com but also freelancer.com, odesk.com, scriptlance.com and vworker.com and push notifications of the jobs that are posted in specific categories as they are posted.
I've only been trying it out for a few days, but so far it is looking pretty good, though I've not bid on any jobs yet.
tinamama, thank you I had not tried that but what a great idea!
Just today, to update you, I had an interview for part-time work for the retail job that i mentioned.
Yay!! Let us know how it goes with both positions. It certainly sounds like you're moving in the right direction all around!
its not really a reply but a little bit of asking you or whoever can help me find those at home jobs.
Hi there and welcome to the board! First of all, congratulations on the recent arrival of your new baby girl!
Unfortunately, finding a work at home job isn't as simple as looking through the classifieds; finding a wfh job can take a lot of researching and hunting. While we can't point you toward an actual position, we can share information and ideas to help make your search a little easier. :smileywink:
This article that has some really good tips on sorting through the scams and how to research companies; it might give you some information you can use to get started looking! http://www.wahm.com/articles/how-to-find-legitimate-telecommuting-jobs.html I'd suggest starting your search at job search sites like Monster and Careerbuilders. You'll want to use keywords like telecommuting and work from home. But be prepared; some telecommuting positions may still require you to live nearby, especially if they want someone to drop into their office for meetings and such. However, a number of companies are beginning to use video conferencing to connect with work at home agents. Here's an article that might give you a bit of insight on searching.http://www.wahm.com/articles/search-secrets-for-finding-scam-free-work-at-home-jobs.htmlIf you are considering starting your own business, one of the easiest ways to bring in some extra income is to sell products from established companies such as Avon, Tupperware and others like that. Many women have found it's productive to set up a website and/or have virtual parties and invite friends and relatives to the events through FaceBook. But also, don't be afraid to be creative and step outside the box for ideas on things your could do. Consider the skills you possess as well as the things that really interest you. Look around your community and see...is there a service that might be lacking in your area that you could fill? You never know, you may stumble on an idea that really takes off!
Hope this helps...and feel free to join in the conversations here; we love talking with other moms!
