I only started my work at home career a few months ago and I am just now seeing results. I have spent a lot of time filling out WAH applications. A person who wants to work at home must realize this is not an easy process. There are a lot of jobs out there that need workers. But those job positions have thousands of inquiries from potential employees. There may be some applications you fill out and never hear from again. However, my favorite reply from an application I filled out is ” You have been rejected.”
Please note that I have a degree in Elementary Education and spent a long time in college. I am a person who is qualified to teach others to write. It was not until I started working from home that I discovered my niche for writing. Also please note that I am not a person who likes to write for “research.” I quickly found out that each “writing website” has a certain writing style of their own. A few weeks ago I applied to write with wiseGeek and was rejected. I quickly asked her what I could do to improve my writing, so I could have a chance to work with wiseGeek. She simply said that I was an excellent writer, but I did not have the type of writing style they were looking for.
With all of that being said, I have been rejected several times in my search to work at home. At first I was upset but I quickly learned this is all part of the job search process. I would rather hear back from a company telling me I was rejected, than sit around and wait for a welcome letter. Over the past 10 weeks or so I have tried to work for a couple of companies. I enjoy doing phone work but I cannot do it because of my circumstances. So I was very determined to keep chugging along to find a non-phone job position.
I would encourage rookies and veterans to the Work at Home job search to be diligent. It is true that “good things come to those who wait.” Sometimes it means hanging on to that last thread for just a few more weeks. When you least expect it that dream job is going to come through. Miranda can vouch that I spent hours filling out applications and finally (just recently) got accepted into a wonderful place to work.
Want to know my secret? I am always applying. Although I feel comfortable with where I am now. Things can always change and I want to be prepared. Never give up in your search for a Work at Home job. While this is not an easy road, it is a path many of us are choosing. I always like the saying “You have to have a why to make you wanna cry”. If you are serious about finding a WAH job then you will not give up hope. Surround yourself with a supportive group of people and get cranking at those applications. The time you put into those job applications will pay off in the near future.
