So, by now most of you know that I graduated on Thursday. I'm "officially" done with college. Unlike most college grads, I don't really have to wonder "where am I going to find a job?" because I have a job. BUT I like to take on extra work because a) I like making money and b) I'm dangerous when left alone by myself for too long. This is why I jumped at the opportunity to review FlexJobs.com.
OK, you're probably wondering what this company has to do with you (or me). Well, FlexJobs.com has my seal of approval. I was given unlimited access for a year ($49.95 value) to this amazing site that allows me to search around for telecommuting and freelance jobs. If you're not convinced that this site is awesome, you can always opt for their monthly package at $14.95. Anyway, I'm always looking to take on new freelance opportunities for my writing and when I saw the kind of companies that search for people like me on this site (eHow.com; Harlequin novels; and LivingSocial to name a few) - I was IN! I also took advantage of their resume tips and a few other pointers before really starting out on my venture.
The first thing I did was upload my resume and create a profile for myself. It was really just that easy. Then I started searching. On a whim, I decided to apply for a position at DemandStudios. The position was for a financial writer and since I often write about things related to finance - I took a shot. Guess what, I GOT THE JOB!
The husband is also looking for extra work on the side but he HATES writing (that may be why he's barely on our blog). So, we started looking for data entry work from home. He had a few options available to him and now he's in the middle of creating HIS profile. This company has a wide array of job categories to choose from - they even have a holiday/seasonal list to look through.
So, if you're looking for something extra to do or you want a flexible job, take a look at their job postings - you'll see why they've earned my seal of approval.
As a bonus, they even offer gift certificates! Since it's graduation season and Father's Day is coming up soon - this might be the perfect gift for someone who is looking for a job or just looking to make some extra cash. While I was given the yearly package to try out, I can assure you that I will pay for the service after my year is up. Financially, it just makes sense.
So, what are you waiting for? Stop making excuses and GET A JOB!
