I;m looking for work at home jobs
Answered on 9th July 2008:
Hi - I telecommute as a social worker and have provided telecommuting information and resources for over 10 years. If you want to work at home in a job, you need to focus your efforts the same way you would a traditional job search. What are your skills and experiences? What do you have to offer an employer? Can you turn your current job into a telecommuting position? Etc. Its important to remember three things: 1) You can just sign up or send money to get work-at-home employment. Like other jobs you need to go through an application/hiring process. 2) Anyone who asks for money isn't giving you a job. It may be a business which could be legitimate, but it could be a scam. So know learn what you can about working at home to tell the difference. 3) Employers don't care about your child care hassles so any proposal or application to work at home needs to focus on what you can do for the employer, not how working at home can help you. Its always good to focus on how telecommuting can save companies money because what business isn't motivated by money? I have free information and resources, plus I post jobs every week day and in my newsletter. Visit http://www.workathomesuccess.com. Leslie Truex
Who came up your child's name? Was it a collaborative effort or did you/your partner insist on the name?
Answered on 8th July 2008:
My husband and I knew what we'd name our kids even before we were married. Somehow the topic had come up and we'd agreed...like most things in life. We are quite compatible. When my daughter was born, he didn't like Riley so much anymore, which was the girl name we'd chosen. After some back and forth and lots of name books, we found a new name. Riley is her middle name as its a family name and both our kids have family names for middle names.
