Yes, I know - It is only Tuesday but it has already been a crazy week. Personally, I always consider it pretty exciting when an employer calls me up and wants to list legitimate data entry and clerical jobs just for our members! That is what happened yesterday, and I already know of at least three SOHO'ers who are already well on their way to a great work at home job!

Of course, I am not surprised. Employers are learning what I've already known for 15 years - SOHO'ers are the best. Hands down. Hiring managers know that we've been online since <gasp!> the 90's. When they are looking for a SOHO'er, they always come to us first.

So, while I am trying to get all these new listings approved in on their way to our members inboxes - I thought I would share a few other excellent work at home opportunities with you. If you get a chance, check out the jobs I've included below, and then login to access to the really good stuff in your "MY SOHO" folder.

Good luck!

 Recently I was contacted by a hiring manager who was interested in listing jobs with SOHOjobs. Nothing surprising there. But what did shock me was WHO wanted to list jobs. The hiring manager represented a top retail department store and their international recruiting office. I've been doing this since 1997 and even I had no idea they hired home based workers.

As I've been saying for years, as technology improves and more homes become wired, connected and technology supported - the more work at home jobs will pop up where you would least expect them.



When I think of a department store - I think of sales clerks and cashiers, floor managers and stock room attendents. But that is not the case anymore. Major brick and mortar retail brands are beginning to see the benefits of hiring home based customer service, catalog, telephone support and Internet ordering assistants. Even the most traditional of retail brands are embracing the idea. Just look at Lord & Taylor, one of the more mainstream retailers in terms of corporate philosphy. Even THEY recently hired Home Based Customer Service and Telephone agents to work from home. (Visit the Lord & Taylor Career Page and search for keyword HOME to see if openings are still available). 

Read more about the job Here (positions are still available as of this publishing but I cannot guarantee the continued availability.)



Lord & Taylor is far from the only virtual job retailers. SOHOjobs currently lists many great home based customer service, ordering assistant and general administration jobs with top department stores. If you are a SOHOJOBS MEMBER you can access these jobs anytime simply by logging in and applying online or contacting the employer directly. (Be sure to let them know you are a SOHO'er!)

To increase your chances of being hired, make sure that you home office is ready to go. Some employers, such as Lord & Taylor will supply you with some equipment such as a headset, but others do not - so it might be a good idea to have a quality set on hand. Generally, retail employers will also require that you have an ergomatic office chair, a PC microphone and a corded business telephone (sometimes with a sepearate phone line). Luckily, all of this equipment is easy and inexpensive to obtain. 

If you are interested in working from home for a top retail brand - or any other established employer, SOHOjobs has hundreds of verified and immediate hire openings that might interest you. Full and part time - with salaries starting at around $11 per hour and up. 



-  And then review the UPGRADE options that are best for you. 


We look forward to helping you land a SOHO - JOB!

Your days are numbered, kids!


Say goodbye to the swimming pool, the beach, summer camp and staying up late. Back to school time is just around the corner - or maybe has already begun for some of you. For kids, this is devastating news but for parents it might be a sigh of relief. Even more so for work - at - home'ers who have had to balance their home based jobs with their home-from-school kids.

As I prepare to send my own little ones back to school, I find it bittersweet. I will miss them. But I look forward to the quiet days too. (Incidentally, you might notice that I publish more blogs after September - mostly because nobody will be asking me to make them peanutbutter and jelly or take them Disney World.)

There is an added benefit to back-to-school time that you might not have thought of: work at home job opportunities in the education field. Just think of all the businesses and services that gear up for this busy time - tutoring services, retail, school and universities, etc. Opportunities are everywhere, and the timing is perfect for moms and dads who now have the time to commit to a new venture.
