Mom's home work

The transition from workplace to work-at-home can be a tough one, but with the right tools and advice, it can benefit the whole family
By Julie Landry Laviolette
Contributing writer
I never wanted to be a stay-at-home mom.

I wanted a career, so I spent my first 35 years happily speeding in another direction, eventually landing a lucrative job, a master's degree, a two-seater sports car and many company-paid meals.

Then I had a child

Resumes for the Work at Home job

Cyber-Resumes for Work-At-Home Jobs

The Internet has created many new opportunities for job seekers to find, apply, and obtain a work-at-home job all online. Nevertheless, simplified job searching capabilities and the ability to e-mail a prospective employer in an instant do not change the basic rules and etiquette of applying for jobs in the online arena. A quick e-mail note to an employer letting him know you are interested in a posted job is not going to get you hired.

In the cyber-world as in the real world, your resume and cover letter are the first chance you have to make an impression on a potential employer. A well-written resume shows that you have the experience and meet the requirements of the job. Further, it will help you proceed to the next step in the job hiring process. A resume that falls short in terms of providing relevant information or a sense of professionalism will be discarded. Do not let your work-at-home resume end up in the reject

Cyber- resumes differ only slightly from traditional resumes. You should prepare a text-only resume that can be copied and pasted into an email, as most companies will not open an attachment. Nevertheless, you should have a formatted or “scannable” resume that you can send via snail mail or as an attachment if the company asks for one.

Before sending your resume and cover letter to a potential employer, check to make sure you follow the guidelines below:


1. Follow the job announcement’s instruction for applying to the job.
2. Limit your resume to one page.
3. Use 12-pt font size.
4. Avoid fancy style fonts and formats. Not all computers can accurately decipher special fonts and formatting (i.e. bold, italics).
5. Spell out all abbreviations; even those that should be obvious to everyone.
6. Include your full name, address, telephone number and e-mail in all documents.
7. In your resume, outline relevant work experience using your most recent occupation first.
8. If you are recent graduate, consider listing your education before your work experience.
9. List other relevant experience such as volunteer work, certifications, course work, etc.
10. Address your cover or introductory letter to a specific person. You can get this from the job announcement or the company’s web site.
11. Your letter of introduction should include the position to which you are applying and where you saw the position advertised.
12. Highlight your skills and experience that are specific to the job in the body of your letter.
13. Proofread, proofread, and proofread your resume and letter of introduction (cover letter) again.

1. List skills or experience that are unrelated to the position offered in your resume or cover letter.
2. Exaggerate or falsify anything.
3. Give personal information such as marital status, age, etc.
4. Have any grammar or typographical errors.
5. Use a personal or buddy-like tone in your cover letter.
6. Send bulk, generic resumes and cover letters.
7. Sound desperate. Companies want the best person for the job. Your financial situation will not sway a decision one way or another.
8. Be over enthusiastic. ‘Salesmen’ type hype does not impress employers.
9. Refer to yourself in the third person in your cover letter. Instead, use “I”, and “me”, etc.
10. Send your resume as an attachment unless you are told specifically to do so. Most companies delete e-mail with attachments for security purposes.

Finding a work-at-home job has become much easier with the growth of the Internet but the time and effort in conducting a job search remains the same. You can avoid getting a rejection letter by following the rules and etiquette of applying to jobs that have endured since the invention of the resume.

Top Telecommuting Questions Answered

Top Telecommuting Questions Answered

While the media has been painting a bleak picture of telecommuting in America, millions of Americans are successfully, happily working at home. The Federal Government has passed legislation giving companies, particularly those in busy, congested cities, financial incentives for encouraging telecommuting. So while, telecommuting statistics may fluctuate (don't stats on employment fluctuate regularly anyway?), the truth is telecommuting is here to stay. It may not replace full-time on-site work but it will be a valuable perk for employees much like flex-time and other alternative work schedules. Below are the top 10 questions I am asked regarding telecommuting.

1) What is telecommuting?

Telecommuting describes the situation in which a person works off-site for all or part of the workweek. In essence, he commutes via telephone or other telecommunication equipment such as a modem. He may telecommute from home, from a satellite location or mobile office.

2) How many people telecommute?

The number of telecommuters is difficult to compute. The International Telework Association and Council report that approximately 23 million people work at home at least part time for an employer. It further estimates that 31 million will be working at home for an employer by 2003. The difficulty in determining the number of telecommuters is partly due to the ambiguity in defining the status of some workers. For example, many sales people who work at home are hired by a company but are contract workers. Are they counted as telecommuters? How about freelancers who are also "hired" or contracted by companies to perform specific tasks. Whether or not these groups of people are counted in the over all population of telecommuters can significantly effect the resulting number of telecommuters. However, experts agree that the numbers of people who are working at home for a company are increasing steadily each year as the concept of telecommuting grows in acceptance.

3) What companies allow telecommuting?

Telecommuting can be found in companies and organization (including government agencies) of all sizes. AT&T is a pioneer in the telecommuting phenomena. Other organizations include Aetna, Gale Research, Journal Graphics, the Federal Government, many state governments, and even small privately owned companies.

4) What jobs are best suited for telecommuting?

While telecommuting jobs have expanded to include a large spectrum of job types, the jobs best suited to telecommuting are those in the technical field especially in computer programming. However, telecommuting jobs can also be found in writing, research, accounting, transcription, sales, law, social work, nursing, and many other areas.

5) Do telecommuter’s get salaries and benefits?

Salaries and benefits are part of many telecommuting programs. They can be found mostly in situations in which an employee has made arrangements with his employer to work at home and in highly skilled or professional jobs. Many of the telecommuting jobs found on the Internet are freelance or contract-based work in which the employee is paid on the amount of work completed (i.e. commission-based).

6) Do you have to pay for telecommuting jobs?

NO! Legitimate employers never charge to hire you. Telecommuting jobs are like any other job. You are hired because you have shown you have the skills and experience for the job. Any job announcement that suggests you can sign-up to work isn’t a real job. Neither is one that charges you a fee. You wouldn’t pay your current boss for paper clips or to add you to payroll!

7) Where can telecommuting jobs be found?

There are two ways to get a telecommuting job. The first is to consider your current job. Are there tasks at your current job that you could do at home? If so, create a Work-At-Home Proposal outlining your work-at-home plan and how it will benefit your company. The second way is to do a work-at-home job search. The best places to find these jobs are on career oriented websites.

8) Do I need special skills?

Special skills, particularly in computer programming, will make it faster and easier to find a work-at-home job. But there are work-at-home jobs in many fields that don’t require any special degrees or skills. Basic skills you should have include writing, organizing, Internet use, research, and problem solving.

9) Is telecommuting suited to parents?

Telecommuting offers many benefits to parents but that doesn’t mean telecommuters can get by without childcare. Many companies require a written telecommuting agreement with childcare arrangements specified. Working at home with children can be difficult, as children need much attention and care. Even when they are engaged in an activity, they can be a distraction. If you plan to work at home, it would be wise to research different child care options such as pre-schools, co-ops, and play groups that could give you some uninterrupted time to work.

10) Does telecommuting work for everyone?

No. While telecommuting offers many benefits such flexibility and no commute time, it does have its disadvantages. Working at home requires much self-discipline to avoid distractions such as the dishes and soap operas. It can create resentment at the office especially if the office staff is unable to contact or ends up picking up extra work not being finished by the telecommuter. One of the biggest complaints by telecommuters is the isolation felt by working at home. Telecommuters are left out of the formal and informal office social systems when an effort to keep in touch with the office isn’t made.
