I just received a pleasant email from a work at home seeker basically telling me to "F off". Strangely enough it was after receiving one of my tips about preparing your home office for working at home.
In general I try to provide as many tips as possible to better prepare job seekers to work at home and edge out the competition. It's not enough to just provide you job leads because that's only half the battle. I send out these additional work at home tips because as a person that hires work at home seekers from time to time, I think it's important for you to know what we as employers expect. However during my "travels with work from home seekers" I've noticed that there are two camps and schools of thought. On one end you have the newbies who are fresh, eager, naive and haven't been jaded. Then on the other end there are the ones that have been around the block a few times. They have grown to become cynical and skeptical about any work at home opportunity whether legitimate or not.
Honestly I really sympathize and feel for the latter group. Who can blame these folks? Everyday there are some new slick bastards promising the equivalent of the Brooklyn Bridge but deliver nothing more than an empty wallet and awful aftertaste. So when I get a few nasty emails from these folks I don't take it personal. I've been there. But for those of you who haven't reached the late stages of the "Angry Work At Home Seeker Syndrome" (AWAHSS). I would like to share some tips that will help you avoid this contagious disease. Trust me you don't want to catch this career halting affliction, because ultimately you end up missing out on a lot of great work at home opportunities. Furthermore you just won't make money at home being bitter and angry.
So let's get proactive.
