  • Randi, go to Craigslist for your area and go to the bottom where it says Resumes. You can post your resume there so all potential employers can find you! Good Luck.

  • did you try a tempt agency

    Answer by symle456 at 2:17 PM on Jan. 31, 2009

  • apply to every single company, store sales, in store office support, churches, colleges' staff positions of different kinds, doctors' receptionists, secretaries, cleaning companies (that clean office buildings in the evenings) within your driving area - just get addresses and mail a resume with cover letter asking for a reply back of part time, full time positions available. Don't only apply for what's listed anywhere. Also many businesses websites themselves aside from in papers list job opportunities. Good Luck Mommy!! just curious - wow how fascinating that your husband works with penguins at a zoo!! Your kids must love that!

  • I work from home and have been able to replace my income. I know it is tough to find work right now. If you'd like to start making an income while you are looking for something outside the home this is a bit about my business.
    What I do:
    Market my free website (training provided)
    Dial people into overview calls
    Set up online accounts
    Mentor others
    Earn residual income that builds over time.

    What I do not do:
    Invest money
    Buy inventory
    Sell Products
    Take orders

    You can work part time or full time depending on your income goals, everything is month to month, no contracts or quotas, no monthly fees. I call the shots and spend as much time with my kids as I need.
    If you'd like more information go to my website at:
    Good luck on your job search!

  • I would try Craigslist or temp agencies like others suggested, maybe yahoo jobs too or something like that. Good luck, I hope you find something soon. I've been looking since Nov 1.
