There is some desperation around work at home town from folks needing to make some extra cash for the holidays. Everyday I see members of many message forums searching for an honest online job. Here it is...just two short months before Christmas day.
Is it too late to realistically find a telecommute job and make money with it in time for the big holiday?
Well, that all depends on the type of position applied for and the company. Sometimes folks get lucky and get an interview right away, and other times it could take weeks or months. Most times, it is a matter of being in the right place at the right time.
Should one feel optimistic about finding a home based position right away? Absolutely!
A job seeker should begin their search with confidence and motivation. Without it, they won't get very far. Also, repetition of applications is key when trying to land a home job. Apply consistently and think positive. There is still a chance to make some holiday cash for this year.
But the question is...what type of work is actually available online and where can one find it?
There are many positions that can be done at home. A lot of online companies are looking to hire home-based contract workers. The jobs range from bookkeeping, customer service and support, writing, blogging, transcription, admin assistant, and others.
Search for home employment on job related websites such as Careerbuilder.com, Craigslist.org, Monster.com, Jobbank.com, and others. Do a search for those sites with the keywords "work at home job boards" or "home job boards." If you're particularly searching for writing or blogging jobs, take a look at jobs.problogger.net.
You can also search on message boards. There are usually specific sections for telecommuting jobs. Sign up on these forums and stay updated on the listings.
Important Tip: You will need to create a professional resume that can be tailored for specific jobs...as most telecommute companies require a resume. It's also a good idea to include a cover letter. Your resume and cover letter is your key to an interview.
Did you know that holiday sales often represent as much as 75% of a retailer's annual profits? These retailers routinely are busiest at this time of year. So...in truth, it may be easier to find a work at home position closer to the holidays. But, one never knows until placing one foot in front of the other and trying.
I wish you luck, wealth, and happiness throughout this holiday season!
