When you decide to become a work from home mum and have your heart set on this, you first need to figure this out
- Should you work for yourself
- Should you work for someone else?
If you choose to work for yourself, you can be a freelancer, and what is good about freelancing work is obvious. You not only get to work for yourself, minus the presence of a boss, but you also get to set your own hours and work as much or as little as you desire. It is hard work but very worthwhile.
A great freelance site I have registered on and you do not have to compete with thousands of others is PPH. You can bid on projects, add a portfolio to your profile and add hourly jobs at fixed prices.
Now, with this all said, the next question is this.
How should work at home mums do good job seeking? The first answer to this question, is to ask yourself this question, what do you like or enjoy doing the most?
If you have a true passion, as well as real talent for something, it is indeed a gift that can be made into making you a regular source of income. Even if you decide to work as a freelancer, you can still make an income, but freelancers will not always have the same people to work and it isn’t an income that will be for long time. As, in essence, being a freelancer means exactly what the name entails. You are free totally, and don’t work for just one person on a permanent basis, but you are still able to make good money that can be steady a good deal of the time.
How should work at home mums do good job seeking? After you have figured out what your one true calling, or one true passion is, then you go forward from there to seek out some good job leads for yourself. This can be done in a number of different ways by searching for them on the internet.
There are lots of online jobs to be had, and the one way to find the right job, that is also the best job for you as a mum is to find them on your own via online job searches (be careful) or via Freelance sites.
One of the best ways to find good jobs for work at home mums is by going to popular job resource sites such as www.workathomemums.com.au or www.lifestylecareers.com.au or www.returntoworkmums.com.au, SEEK is the main player in Australia.
Work At Home Mums is truly one of the best, from all the rest, and the at home job listings are simply wonderful. So, with this said, you should utilise a lot of the work at home job sites first. You can also answer ads on Gumtree which are looking for at home workers, and there is so many more other outlets. The important thing to remember is this, and it is, to only apply for the jobs that you are interested in and feel that you can do on a routine basis.
Most importantly, only take jobs that you have a true love, or defining passion for overall, otherwise you are just wasting your time and that is not a good thing at all.
