Discussion Question

Work from Home? Impossible?

I was wondering if any of you ladies have any suggestions on work from home jobs? I really would like to not go back to my 9-5 job and be away from my little.
I would greatly appreciate the suggestions. I would like to not have to pay to start and don't want to be selling scentsy, etc.
TIA!

    There are online platforms like Elance, Upwork etc that you can check for virtual work.
    Also consider your field of passion and look for a possibility to have an income online in that field.
    Start now so you are not desperate when baby is here already. I did this and I am excited!

    I sent my resume out to several local attorneys and told them what I could offer as a virtual assistant. I marked the envelope CONFIDENTIAL. I sent 25 letters and got 3 assignments. I met with each of the 3 personally and they send me assignments on a regular basis.

    You should also search well known companies in your area of expertise and ask if they any WAH opportunities.

    Good luck.

What to do if you face a step down in your career due to the break you took of 6 months to take care of your newborn? Does this happen frequently? Any ideas on how to get a job after this break? Please help! I was working as a Sales Manager in a company where I had to quit as I needed to give sometime to my baby. Now when I'm trying to start working again, I don't get even considered due to the break I took. The HR in these companies advice me to step down in the position and start from senior sales associate or reception. I do have good experience being good at my job and my previous employer have everything good to say about me. What should I do?

I'm planning to have a baby and, as an accountant, am accustomed to putting in Saturday hours (we all do during tax season). Once I start a family, though, I'd reeeally rather not work weekends... should I just suck it up and accept it as part of my career choice, or try to have a conversation with my boss? Any tips?

Any advice for someone searching for work during their first trimester of pregnancy? I currently work with a temp agency for income and am applying for my next role. From what I've read on the boards, it seems that most women are firmly established at their companies but I was forced to look for a new role outside of my former company due to a health condition. They were unwilling to move me to a different role within the company. Any suggestions on how to navigate the next 4-6 months before giving birth?
