  • I have the perfect suggestion for you. Merchandising. Merchandising jobs are great because usually you get to create your own schedule. Most of the time, you'll have a week or a month at a time to get projects completed. This allows for great flexibility. You can find them at Go to the Jobs/Career tab and Search the Job Bank. Enter in your state and search.

  • Try to work for the state. Most are sit down jobs and require little to no previous experience to do a clerical job
