Hi Ankitaa this is Janani here. Being married I left my career. Now I want to persue my career where little opportunities are available. Help me with getting work from home jobs. 09 Mar 2017, 04:35pm
I understand what you are going through. I had to leave my career two times in the past - once when I got married and the other time when I had a baby. But I got back, both times.. not because there were ample opportunities out there, especially for work-from-home professionals, but because I wouldn't take 'No' for an answer. So be prepared to struggle and I assure you, you will be back on track as far as your career is concerned.
To get started, use Sheroes to apply to jobs you know you are qualified for and would have the time for. Proficiency and the ability to deliver on time are your keys to success because you will be working from home. And of course, communication, more importantly - written communication.
First, make sure your profile is filled out well here, and then start applying.
Second, be polite when you are emailing someone for the first time, as well as every time. Give respect to gain respect. I personally hate it when a prospective employee starts the email with a "Hi!", even when my name is listed in the job posting!
And finally, be patient. I did a lot of to and fro between LinkedIn and Sheroes before I landed a job through Sheroes.
I don't know what type of work you are looking for, so I can't answer here specifically. But do look up your old colleagues and friends from the old job(s) on LinkedIn. TELL them you are looking for work-from-home opportunities. ASK them for help. They can't know you want their help, unless you ask them. I had a tough time with this - too much ego but then, I mellowed out.
And a final word - you will find many people will ask you to work for less just because you are looking at work-from-home opportunities. In the beginning, you will have to compromise to build up your profile, but know your worth. Before starting any work, calculate how much you should be ideally earning - that will keep you motivated when patience revolts.
Hope I could help you. Do let me know :) View Less
