My Work At Home Job Resource: Telework Recruiting

Telework is a large job lead database for serious telecommuters. You pay a one time membership, $59.99, to gain access. You'll have your pick of clerical, legal, customer services, sales, medical and many catagories. Many of these companies do not post their jobs on the popular WAH message boards.

The site even has sections for Canada and United Kingdom!

Your membership includes free resume posting, message board access for networking with other telecommuters, and discounts on resume services.

I was able to find a job within a day of joining Telework And it was in my local area! You can read my testimony on

I highly recommend Telework Recruiting, it's worth the investment.

Telecommuting Job Idea: Resume Writer by Nell Taliercio

If you are a creative, but concise writer, then being a resume writer could be the perfect job for you. Many people have a good deal of job experience, but don’t know the best way to present it to a potential employer. With just the right polish and editing, their resume could put them at the top of the pile. While there are programs out there that can “help” write a resume, nothing beats the human touch. If you add helping with cover letters, you could have a business going in no time.

Where to find a job as a resume writer: You could hang signs on college campuses. Students who are facing graduation and job hunting are always worried about writing a good resume. There are websites that offer resume services, so you could contact them and see if they hire freelance writers.
Skills you need: You should be able to convey the crucial information in a way that highlights the job seeker’s strengths. You should be able to creatively represent the information without embellishing in a way that misrepresents the skills.

You need to be able to write the different styles of resumes: Reverse Chronological, Functional, or a Combination. You also need to be aware of the current trend of people writing a CV (Curriculum Vitae), rather than a standard resume. A CV tends to focus on education, writing, and research experience for academic fields.

Tools you need: A reliable computer, internet connection and basic word processor program are all you really need. Although, if you are doing work for local customers, you may need a printer as well.

How much money can you make? Some resume services charge around $100-250 for a resume, CV and cover letter package.

BerryMorins Bits and Tips Recommended Weekly Blog - Pure Joy

Last year, I posted about the 'Getting Hitched...The Good, The Bad and The Ugly', a wedding blog. We got to read all about the joys and trials of preparing a wedding. I really enjoyed reading about it. There's just something fun about reading about wedding preparations. And looking at dresses, cakes, and favors.

This week's BerryMorin Bits and Tips Recommended Weekly Blog is Pure Joy. The blog owner describes herself as a child of God who's learning to be the
be the person God has created her to be with His help. Amen!

While visiting her blog, during Wordless Wednesday, I read that she's now engaged. She has also posted some wedding plans, pictures and ideas. She's also asking if we have favor ideas. So, while you're visiting maybe you can comment on some.

Congratulations Pure Joy on your engagement news! Oh, check out the photo of the ring, it's beautiful.

Product Recommendation: Hangaway Collapsible Drying Rack

Is there a product that once you purchased it that you thought and said, "Why did I wait so long?" Well, the Hangaway Collapsible Drying Rack is definitely one of those for me. I did some comparision shopping between the two home shopping channels and found that the Hangaway was better constructed. I immediately called the toll free phone number and placed my order.

Just as the video presentation stated you can hang a lot of clothes, without it flipping or collasping. I use mine to hang all the washable for drying. It's also used to hang the shirts, pants, and other ironed items. It has made that job much more quicker and enjoyable!

Visit for the video presentation. (it really sold me) The rack is just $22, plus shipping and applicable sales tax.
