  • What is the reason , because of finaces are is it that your bored?? I would not get a job because of boredom. Join a local Moms group, they have them usually @ a church or library. Do volunteer work when hubby is @ home to watch your son. If you really want to return to work, you will get your foot in the door with refrences from your volunteer postion. Sounds like you just want to feel like your accomplishing something outside the home. If your thinking about another child do it now, before you go back to work. Volunteer work is very fulfulling your helping people.

  • Try a job placement agency or small buisness adds in the paper. There are a lot of temp jobs you could work fi you are family with the Office suite and type well. You could potentially find a job where you work during school hours but are home when your child gets home. There are also some transcription type jobs where they send you either scribbled notes or a tape and then you type it up. You can do it from home.

  • I have a few thoughts. Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely? If you have a computer with high speed internet and Microsoft Office Pro and have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). There is a company located outside of Chicago that matches up VAs and clients called VSI; the url is
    Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who make children's hair accessories in her basement and sells them to boutiques around the midwest. I work out of my home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping and business organization; I also do career and job search coaching. I am always happy to help cafemoms with resumes, coverletters, job search strategy and interview preparation. Feel free to contact me directly. -Robin

    I "work" on these two website when I want and for how long I want and make an INCOME from it. I do NOT spend hours upon hours, just a few minutes whenever I feel like doing them. They are worth taking a look at.
