Home-based Job that I Personally Tried
Home-based Job for Pregnant Woman and New Mom
I experienced hyperemesis gravidarum or excessive vomiting during pregnancy so I needed to give up my day job because of my condition. I started looking for site that offers home-based jobs. I read a lot of reviews and blogs about home-based job available for me and found out about freelancer.com and odesk.com. I tried both of them. You just need a personal computer, a reliable internet connection and yourself.
Based on my experience, odesk.com is more convenient to use. Various jobs are being offered in odesk like administrative work, transcription, translation and technical jobs like SEO and back linking jobs. Also, there are a lot of local banks accommodating the transfer of your earnings from odesk without overcharging the transactions. In addition to that, odesk.com support is always ready to help you whenever you need assistance. The chat support is friendly and accurate too! What I like about odesk.com is that I don't need to pay to make an account. You can start right away without paying them. They just get portion of your earnings when you are done with your work and the clients settle their payment accordingly.
Freelancer.com, in my opinion, is more appropriate for technical persons. They offer various jobs for computer experts and engineering graduates. My friend is earning more in freelancer.com since he is a technical person.
According to some blogs and reviews that I read, you should look for BBB accreditation seal before joining them. BBB accreditation seal is one of the strong proofs that a particular site is a reliable one. Another thing, if the site is asking money for membership fee, this means that the site is not reliable. However, my friend told me that she has a premium account in freelancer.com. She is paying a little amount so that she can earn more.
These site might help pregnant women to use their time productively while waiting for the baby. It will lessen the boredom too. There are also a lot of home-based job in the two sites mentioned for moms who wish to stay with their kids while earning money.
