Work at Home Free Workshop (Part 2) Friday, Jan 23 2015 

The Deaf Church in New Orleans

Work at Home FREE Workshop (Part 2)
You can attend Part 2 even if you have not attended part 1. This workshop will focus on helping participants to find several opportunities of legitimate sources to earn an income from home. Often people are hesitant to accept opportunities to earn money at home for fear of being fooled by scams and con schemes. These resources that we will share with and demonstrated to participants have been tried and tested. No pyramid schemes or multi-level marketing businesses will be shared. No one teaching or assisting in the class will make any money off of your work. General tips on job searching and interview techniques will also be discussed.
Not everyone will want to work at home. For those who do not want to work at home, the job opportunities and skills can be used as a supplement to income while seeking an outside of the home job. Job applications, resumes, and interview training also will be provided. Each participant will have an opportunity to work with an assistant to create or update their resume.
