    • I am a big fan of home based businesses. You get out of them what you put into them. And you don’t trade time for money, you learn how to leverage it so that your efforts are multiplied exponentially.
      I love love love my company and the comp plan since it is designed to put money into your pocket fast. http://core4system.com has a brief explanation as does this video on my profile: http://fabulously40.com/video/id/238/
      Jan would be a great time to become a weight loss coach. Even if you have pounds to lose, you can self fund your own program, and be a living testimony.
      There are several ways to get started as far as cost. If you like helping people and are self motivated, then a homebased business is a great way to go.

    • I think it depends on what line of work you‘re in.  monster and careerbuilder may be very good for some industries, but not others.
      starting your own business might be great for someone who is a self-starter and doesn’t need immediate income.
      networking and persistence is always a good thing to do. as a free-lance writer, times are tough and I do not get paid much, but once I was laid off from my day job-I decided to get serious. I have been doing a whole cheerleader act for myself! Okay, the pay is still low, but I’ve tripled the amount of articles I was doing while gainfully employed in a totally different field.
      I am constantly sending links of my articles, checking in w/ those I’ve sent them too and I’m not shy about asking them for referrals if they like my work!
      Persistence-the name of the game

    • Can’t under-estimate networking.  Most great jobs don’t get advertised!

      Another thing that always works for me if I am looking at an ad:  call the place and ask to be able to talk with someone about the job BEFORE you apply ... “I’m wondering if this would be a good job for me and I don’t want to waste your time by applying if I wouldn’t meet your needs.”  Every single time I’ve done this, I’ve gotten to talk with someone, and if I applied I got an interview and been offered the job!  But don’t follow this path for jobs you really wouldn’t want!

      Best of luck!

    • I agree with Dee Dee.  This is a great time to get into a home based business - especially if it can be a product you can use and really believe in.

      Check out www.IsagenixStory.com I also host a group Isagenix at Fabulously 40 that can give you a ton of information on the company and its products.  The products have literally saved my life and the business is making it easier!

    • During hard economic times Network Marketing has proven to work well. Look at statistics as to when some of the most known companies were started.Example: Amway, Mary Kay, Nutrilite....they are still around!
      Find the one that fits you best.....Consumable products work the best since you have to reorder.
      My name is Francoise and I have been with Arbonne International for the past 2 years and I love the company. We are in the skincare and wellness industry. Our products are Botanicaly based, PH correct,no animal products or by products, no mineral oil, Hypoallergenic and vegan certified.

    • Indeed.com usually has all the listings that are on all job search engines. Also CraigsList is good.

      However an article on Yahoo said to not generate your resume all over. That you should only apply it to your specific area of interest. Exhaust all those resources. Then send it to the general population.  

      I generally will send mine directly to the HR dept of the companies I am interested in working for.

      I would love to know what a perfect cover letter should say tho....

    • I like linkedin as well.  Also, watching the news to see who is adding a new product, division or service will need to hire. Then find out who is in charge and contacting them with questions and offering your services.

    • I am an HR Director and we are looking at new ways to promote our open positions.  I think that if you know where you want to work or what you want to do you can go to networking sites that have others that are in the same business.  We are fortunate to have a website and plenty of hits.
