What's New This Month?

By November 30, 2012

Follow me on:

As November draws to a close and we head full swing into the holiday season, I've been working on a variety of articles.

Most are not particularly seasonal, though I think 9 Ways to Make Money With Your Phone--and its handy companion piece Pitfalls of Money-Making Apps for Your Smartphone--may be useful while you are out holiday shopping. Many of these apps actually pay you to go to stores, so why not collect a little dough while your spending it?

Generally, I've been working on core articles about how to find legitimate work-at-home jobs. For instance, 11 Sites to Find WAH Job Leads can save  time in the job search. These sites have fresh job leads, usually daily and usually for free. So bookmark this page and let someone else do searching for you.

I wrote two profiles of companies that hire telecommuters in two very different industries: nursing and data entry. Carenet hires telephone nurses for approximately $25 an hour, while Quicktate pays transcribers as little as $.0025 per word. While they may sound quite far apart monetarily (and they are), what they have in common is that they both pay on the low end for their own industry. And sometimes, lower pay can be the trade-off for working at home, though it not always.

Overall, data entry is a pretty low-paying field, but for those starting out it may be a way to break into working at home. Just know what you're getting into, and read this article What (and How) Do Data Entry Jobs Pay?.

And finally I wrote a few shorties on the some terms relating to some popular work-at-home opportunities:

  • What Is a Virtual Assistant Job? - I wrote this because this term takes on different meanings among the many companies and websites promoting these types of jobs or home businesses.
  • What Is a Search Evaluator? - With this definition the meaning doesn't vary, so much as there are multiple synonyms for this same position.

So that's the November round up. If you want to catch the articles when they are hot off the presses--so to speak--follow me on Facebook or Twitter or sign up for my newsletters on the links below. Onward to December!
