I need a job plese help..

Ok I am 23 yrs old, married, and we have 2 girls Infant & toddler. They cut back on my husbands hours for his work, and some of his pay is being garnished. I tried to apply for general assistance, and food stamps but they say I dont qualify. We have no one to watch our girls so I stay with them but financially we are hurting. I am taking online college courses, I have a highschool degree, and have previous work experience. Is there any online jobs that are legit? thanks

  • It probably would be better for your DH to get a second job. Then you getting a job. Unless you get a job on a different shift he does so you will not have to pay day care.

  • I have yet to see a legitimate online job. You are going to get a lot of suggestions to start your own business selling this product or that product...which is fine if you like selling. Some of us would starve in that line of work!

    Do either of you have work experience that can be used in an off-hours job? One of you home while the other is working? That may be your best bet.

  • If you are looking for more than just a J-O-B ("Just Over Broke") and would truly like to bring in a 2nd income, yet work your schedule AROUND your family, earn a full-time income working part-time hours then I may have what you are looking for. Its a home based business with a 30-yr-old health and wellness company. All the training is free and online and we are partnered with Mercedes-Benz. This is not a "I just want let someone else decide what hours I work and then accept the pay they give me"-type of business. Its a legitimate home based business where your income potential is matched by your effort. If you are willing to learn and to be coachable I can teach you how to earn the money you need. Whether you need an extra $200, $500 or $5,000 per month, this business can change your life. Visit my website for more information or just contact me through CafeMom! I look forward to givng you more info.

  • oppsosite shifts or working his off days is an option.I don't put much effort in online jobs myself but I guess if you search enough you can find a good one.

  • You can search for jobs that match your skillset and have a telecommute or remote option. Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely? If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). For more information, go to,, . Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization; I also do career & job search coaching. I am always happy to help cafemoms (and dads) with resumes, cover letters, job search strategy & interview prep
