It's been a long while now since the work at home or online jobs have become wildly abundant. Because of that, more and more people have chosen to work in this kind of jobs because they value one important thing - family.
With 8-5 day jobs, people have realized that they are not able to spend much time with their family and their home. So for those who have children, they'd mostly depend on hired nannies and houseworkers to get the jobs done when in fact, they themselves can do it if they were a hands-on parents. Another advantage of working from home or online (which also means can be anywhere as long as one is connected to the internet) is having a flexible schedule. Most work from home jobs or online jobs don't require one to work on employer's fixed schedule as most employers let one set own schedule. For example, in a 24-hour period, one can choose to complete his 8-hour task within 12 hours. So that means that one can take a break in between allowable length of session. I am talking about the hourly jobs here. For fixed jobs, one has to follow turnaround time. This means that once one is given the task, he will need to finish and submit it in a specified time i.e. 24 hours. It may be a little bit more of a pressure on the worker though this also mostly offers instantly bigger earnings.
Enough bla-bla. I am a busy work at home mom of four lovely kids. I have a best friend for over 5 years now which is my personal computer. I work at my own schedule and for 1 year and 8 months now, I have been working for Google. Everyone scouring the web must know about Google. It's a giant company widely known esp. to internet users. You may have wondered how to join Google's team. Well, I would say I was just so lucky to be part of this company. And because I cannot disclose anything here, I just would like you to leave comments regarding your interest in working online for Google so I can provide you with the additional details. And the requirements are as follows:
1. Keen attention to details
2. Personal computer / fast Broadband/DSL connection
3. Working headset and webcam
4. At least 3.0 grade in oDesk English Skills Basic Test - Actually, they only require 2.5 but I'd advise anyone to get at least 3.0.
For those who have no oDesk account yet, you can create only one legitimate account by clicking on here.
As work at home means being independent, keen attention to details is a must. So fill your account with information needed. Don't worry about providing your information to oDesk as it is a secure site. Make yourself ready by taking the oDesk Readiness Test which you can find in the test section. There are more tests you can find in there. Just feel free to explore the site and as I've mentioned already, the next step to getting hired by Google is to pass the US English Skills Basic Test. 3.0 is already good but of course, the bigger is always the better. This is a timed test so to ensure yourself to pass the test, take a look at the syllabus and take time to review about how to use each of them but if you are confident of yourself then you may skip reviewing. If you fail, 3 months is not too long, I guess? And just in case, many resources can be found with research online. How does this sound? I am not asking you to pay me anything because legitimate jobs don't ask you to pay even a single cent.
After I've spent a few months tending to my health, now I'm all alive and kicking! Thanks to the Almighty God! It also means I'm back to my previous usual scene, facing my computer and left- and right-clicking the mouse with thoughts busy searching for new opportunities that I can do from home and online. I've been doing this for nearly four years now. So far, I am happy with it because it has let me earn an income without having me to leave home. And now, I've got over ten sites to attend to. *thinking*
Many people do blame their parents for giving them names that they don't like - probably because their names sound too unpleasant to hear. So those who have the means have opted to change their names into great sounding ones or into lucky ones.
Have you ever wondered what your name means for you or what it does for your life? Well, I have...
I'm not a Chinese but I believe in a lot of things and stuffs. Honestly, I can't count them all with my fingers. Why I believe so is because I have proven that many of the superstitions I know of prove to be true. I continue to learn and because I have more time now, I dig around the web for ideas esp. on names - I'm just curious until I found a site that tells how to determine if your name is bringing you good or bad luck. 'tis just for fun but I want to take it seriously.
Accordingly, the name of a person greatly affects him and how he lives. In Feng Shui, there are five elements namely; wood, fire, earth, metal and water (constructive cycle in Feng Shui). And talking about names, each alphabet in your name is being represented by an element.
A,B,K,L,U,V - Wood C,D,M,N,W,X - Fire
E,F,O,P,Y,Z - Earth G,H,Q,R - Metal I,J,S,T - Water
Wait, that doesn't end just there. You will need to determine your favorable element according to the season you were born in. Check your favorable element below and element to avoid.
4th February to 5th May - favorable: Metal, avoid: Wood
6th May to 7th August - favorable: Water, avoid: Fire
8th August to 7th November - favorable: Wood, avoid: Metal
8th November to 3rd February - favorable: Fire, avoid: Water
For four Earth months: 5th April to 5th May, 7th July to 7th August, 8th October to 7th November and 6th January to 4th February - avoid Earth
My name is Aires and my favorable element is metal so I should avoid wood. That's why I want my name be changed to Trish because it only has two elements which are metal and water and metal feeds water (constructive). And Trish means 'noble'. :D
