6 Secret Tips for Finding Legit Work From Home Jobs for Moms
Searching for a new job can be both physically and mentally draining, especially if you're suddenly left jobless and you're scrambling to find a legit work from home opportunity that will provide you with an income to support your life and your family.
Over the years I have learned quite a few tips when searching for a legit work from home job and I wanted to share my top tips with you so you can find a legit remote job that work for you and your family quicker.
Take a look at 6 secret tips for finding legit work from home jobs for moms:
1. Know that it's okay to accept an entry level job
It's okay to realize that some companies aren’t going to pay you a high paying salary right off the bat! However, it's important to realize that these work from home mom jobs are really great stepping stones to using your skills and building your resume as a stay at home mom. They will help you build your resume by giving you experience in the work field and give you a starting point for finding more legit online jobs for moms.
2. Don't apply to every job that pops up
It can be tempting to apply for every work from home job that pops up on your search results page. But, like any other job in a professional setting, you want to make sure you're applying for jobs that are a good fit for your skills and interests.
Submitting an application is only the first step in a long process - one where you may not even be considered because of your lack of experience or education. Instead, take time to research the company and make sure their values align with yours (this will help ensure things go smoothly if/when you do get hired). The same goes for researching the position itself; will this be something I enjoy doing every day? Will I be able to do it well enough earn money doing it? If either question makes you hesitate at all - don't apply! It's better not to waste anyone's time by putting forward applications that won't lead anywhere than it is just submitting them blindly anyway.
3. Find someone to help to build a resume and cover letter that work for you and the types of jobs you want to apply for
There are a ton of freelancing websites that serve as a platform where people can hire freelancers to do work for them. You can find many people offering resume writing on websites such as Fiverr and these resumes are usually pretty good! If you're not quite sure what your strengths are yet or have been out of school too long to remember how to write an excellent resume, it can be helpful to take advantage of someone else's expertise when you're building your resume for the first time. Using someone who is good at building a resume and cover letter can help you land interview opportunities for legit work from home jobs for moms.
4. Look for part time and temporary positions
Part-time and temporary positions. If you’re looking for a flexible job, it may be worth your while to apply for part time or temporary positions. Many companies have these types of openings, and they are often easier to get than full-time work from home jobs. Plus, the pay usually isn’t bad either!
Remote roles. Another option is remote work—that is, working from home but for an employer that has their office in another city or state (or even country). While it can take some searching to find legitimate remote opportunities that offer competitive salaries and benefits packages, they do exist!
Data entry roles. As computers become more sophisticated and integral parts of our daily lives, there has been a rise in these kinds of roles: data entry workers who enter various types of information into databases using digital devices such as laptops or phones. If you don't mind sitting at your computer all day long but happen not to be good at typing fast enough (which can be remedied by taking speed tests), this could be just what you're looking for!
5. If a company doesn't respond back within 24-48 hours thank them for their time, and move on
If a company doesn't respond back within 24-48 hours thank them for their time, wish them well and move on! Don’t take it personally. It's not personal. The recruiter or hiring manager is probably just overloaded with applicants and can't keep track of everyone's responses.
It's important to remember that rejection is part of the job search process, so don't let yourself get discouraged by it; instead use it as an opportunity to learn from your mistakes so you can improve on your next application.
6. Limit the number of applications you fill out
Limit yourself to a certain number of applications per day. Remember, this is just a starting point and the last thing you want is to feel burned out from applying to jobs. You may find better opportunities outside these resources later down the road! Just get your foot in the door by building your experience now by doing something legit right now or today!
Set up a calendar for yourself and plan out when you will apply for jobs each day/week. It's important that you stick with it so that you don't get overwhelmed and end up getting discouraged. You can also set reminders on your phone if necessary so that nothing slips through the cracks.
