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.
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?
My friend just told me (she was trying to be nice) that I'm limiting my career potential because I don't wear makeup to work. Do you think she's right? Do I need to wear makeup to be "professional?"
OK, the previous post is a tough act to follow, but here goes: Within the next week or two, I will be laid off from the ad agency where I work. Unfortunately, this is an industry hazard; when an agency loses clients, it cuts staff. We're losing two major accounts. It's deja vu for me, because the last agency I worked at lost a huge account and laid off 11 staffers, including me. The advertising industry skews very young. I laugh when I see "senior copywriter" positions requiring three years of experience. I have more than 20 years of experience. Also, many writers focus on a niche, such as pharma, but I take pride in the diversity of my portfolio. While I prefer a permanent, full-time copywriting/content position, either remote or in the Greater Philadelphia/South Jersey region, I'm thinking about going freelance. I already have a few freelance clients, but not enough to pay the bills. Any advice on how to best position myself in the marketplace, and how to dive in to freelance writing full time would be greatly appreciated. (And feel free to hit me up with job offers!)
For moms out there who have breastfed and pumped at work...curious how much you guys stored up in terms of breast milk before you went back to work. I heard that milk supply can dwindle so I've been pumping like crazy!
