We’re done with college. No more hanging out with friends. Time to activate mature and professional mode and it starts with getting a job. It’s not that simple to earn money, either through business or being employed. First we have to print out impressive resumes (at least 5 copies or more), put on a professional suit or dress, behave, be proper for interviews, so on and so forth. It takes a lot of time and effort to apply for jobs, we travel and commute to those sites without knowing if you will be given a good or a bad news. Congratulations for those who will be hired and better luck next time for those who failed. Bummer! But wait, that’s not what I’m going to talk about on this post but will share how you can make yourself your own boss. How? Simple. You just need a laptop or a desktop, a stable internet connection, and your own self. No suits needed, you can even work while you are on your pajamas 🙂
There are a lot of jobs available online that you might be willing to check out. Available works are data entry, email handling, website optimization, article and blog writing, editing, lots of website programming vacancies etc. It was January of 2014 when I started working online for a part time only but there are full time options as well. The good thing about it is you will be the one to set how much your rate will be, and it’s dollars $$$$ !!! Isn’t it great? Now let me tell you more about how to start your online career, here are the steps:
1. Go to http://www.odesk.com
2. Click on Sign up to register (choose I need a job)
3. Fill up the application form with the infos needed then click Get Started.
4. Voila! You can start applying for jobs!
That’s how easy it is. But you have to complete your profile with regards to your educational attainment and your expertise in order to impress the clients and finally giving you the vacant position. There are a lot of instructional videos and manuals on the oDesk site that will be so helpful so you might wanna check out those clips. You can take tests that are related to your field of expertise and results may affect clients decisions in hiring you, so the better the test results the more your chances of landing on a job, either part time or full time.
Being able to work at home is such a great feeling because you don’t have to dress up, go out and you can drink your coffee and eat some snack while doing your assigned task. You got your own time, no one will supervise you and you have your own comfortable space.
So there, I hope this post helps a lot and if you have questions, comments or suggestions, just feel free to poke me 🙂
Thanks for your time!
