  • were you working on the books or under the table? If it was under the table, you won't be eligible for unemployment

  • The place to have put this question is under money and work.
    But if you had a legitimate job, file for unemployment. Then start looking for another job. And those that work from home, usually have a husband supporting them also and are selling avon, candles, etc. as more of a hobby.

  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely?
    You can search for jobs that match you skill set and have a telecommute option.
    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 www.ivaa.org, www.iavoa.com, www.vanetworking.com ..
    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 (along with medical billing), I also do career and job search coaching.
