I found this post through the forum here and tweaked my resume and cover letter prior to emailing Legacy.

You ever heard "the squeaky wheel gets the grease?" Well it's definitely true in looking for a work at home job. Apply. Apply. Apply. And then apply again.

Just because someone says no once, that doesn't mean they'll say no the next time. They may not be looking to hire the first time you apply. But update that resume and reapply. Don't give up.

And don't ever think of doing anything horrible. Better things are just around the corner. [img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]

So you are very lucky to have that at least. I work for Parameds and also do texting which you can do all hours so you can work around your kids. I don't know if that is something that you would be interested in or not but it is adult in nature and can't really be talked about here unfortunately...
Unfortunately, they dont hire in Illinois...Boooooooo....AA that is....

Have you ladies tried Ver-a-Fast they have a board on here. They are a great company and you are paid for EVERY CALL. Not sales, verifing information for phone books and CS for newspapers mostly. Worth trying. I made good money with them. Now it was years ago when I worked for them so it might be a bit different but I still think it is worth it.

Teletech is hiring. There are some forums on here for them. I just did an online info meeting with them, got hired and now waiting for work to come available.

I have an outside job that I really love that I currently do customer service for but I am looking for supplemental income but my hours there make it hard to find something else and the fact that I don't have an actual landline ( I have it thru my cable) makes it hard also. I have applied to so many companies but I know the right one will come along. Thank you everyone on here for giving out such good advice to companies that are hiring.

I use to work for Teletech last year, but right after training, my computer went down and I had to resign....Now everytime I put in an application, I get "Thanks but no thanks" while everyone else is being hired...I even sent them an email asking if they rehire previous workers, but haven't received a response, so I am thinking that they don't....

I would definitely reapply with LO if I were you, they didn't hire me a couple of years ago but hired me right way about a month ago, however I did not accept since I got on with Cloud10 around the same time. Also I know West is at a hiring freeze right now but it would not hurt for you get an application in with them and be on hold.

There is Arise, however with Arise you have to pay for incorporation and classes, people say that it is really worth it once you pay for it though.

Also have do you have an app in with WorkingSol? I know that it can take along time to get on with them but it doesn't hurt to try!

Vip Desk is another one, I think they want you to have somewhat good credit to work for them though.

Here's some more, uhaul, lionbridge, google quality rater, contract exchange hires in certain states but like arise has some fees you have to pay.

Also make sure that you check out the WPLH work at home jobs forum section as well as the wahm one everyday, sometimes there are leads posted over there that aren't posted here or vice versa!!

Good luck!!

uhaul doesnt hire in my state, workingsol rejected me after the interviewer asked me to sell a half glass of water (wasnt expecting that one...lol)...lionbridge doesnt hire in Illinois, google said I wasnt qualified, i cant afford arise (I read that they are having some problems with them overhiring and everyone not getting enough hours)....

The majority of the companies do not seem to hire in Illinois....That seems to be my biggest problem....
