I have written about work from home jobs before, but today I updated my list with some additional options from the Today Show segment.
Mom Corps - connects woman who are looking for job sharing, telecommuting, permanent and contract positions with 150 companies nationwide. Job seekers can post their resume for free on the Mom Corps site or pay $9.99 a month for better placement as a “featured candidate”. Mom Corps is also looking to expand their franchises over the next 1-2 years.
10 Till 2- is a part-time placement service that matches college-educated professionals with long-term part-time jobs. 10 Till 2 is a franchise available in 9 states and job seekers do not pay a fee.
HomeWithTheKids is a website dedicated to posting opportunities for part time jobs and has a lot of good, up-to-date information. Check the section called “Unresearched Job Leads”.
You can use a site called jobvent to read what others are saying about the company/jobs that you area applying for. They have free and anonymous reviews of jobs that people LOVE or HATE. This site looks like a good place to vent-they don’t even require an email address!
Work from home sites: Most of these work from home sites for part time jobs require a newer computer, high speed Internet access, a dedicated phone line and strong communication skills. In most cases, you will also take an online assessment test to determine your computer knowledge and skills. These work from home sites are from a Good Morning America segment by Tory Johnson from April, 2008: Many of these sites were also written about in the October 1, 2010 issue of Woman’s Day Magazine.
Care.com matches providers with people looking for child care, special needs care, tutoring & lessons, senior care, pet care & housekeeping. In our area, there are plenty of people hiring right now. You post your experience, a picture. You can also submit pre-recorded references. The Care.com service is free, however there is a nominal fee for a background check which I recommend.
For $10.00 a month, you can be listed as a “featured caregiver” and your listing is at the front of the pack. My daughter has been using this site to find part-time jobs for tutoring and baby-sitting for about 6 months. When she first started out, she was a “featured caregiver” for two months and it brought her many more jobs.
You will be sent an email each time a position matching your qualifications is posted. You can check out the job posting and then decide if you want to contact the person through the website. Care.com was founded in 2006 and is growing rapidly. The service is available in 40 major cities.
Kelly Services is another popular site to find temp jobs (not the work from home ones.) You can access their database of jobs HERE.
*Update- here is the link to the new Department of Labor website called “My Skills, My Future”.
