Choosing Career as a WAHM

Choosing a career without any passion at all seems a heavy luggage. That’s why before I decide to become a Work at Home Mom (WAHM), It took me awhile to finally make my decision.

When I started home based freelancing three years ago, the Odesk platform was my first training ground for a challenging work as a WAHM. Since working online is relatively popular today, I decided to make this article to provide some advises for those who want to career venture at Odesk and become a Work at Home Mom.

If you’re an internet savvy who wishes to have additional financial assistance, Odesk will provide you several kinds of jobs such as:

  • web designing if you have knowledge in IT
  • virtual assistant if you’re into clerical works
  • data entry if you’re good in administrative support
  • technical writing if you have the passion in writing
  • Telemarketing if you’re good in advertising/ marketing etc.

The photo below shows all job categories being offered in Odesk. So whatever your profession is, you can always find your niche freelance job.

You should think on what kind of career path you want to follow and then start working from there. Assess yourself first — What are your talents? What are your skills? Are you good in clerical works, in advertising or something similar to these? This will help you easily map out your career goals while having a clearer picture of what you want to pursue.

In addition, once you started working in Odesk continue on learning new things to provide a room for improving your talents and skills. Constant learning will help you find a greater avenue where you can excel the most.

Though it may take you a long way towards success, but doing something you love the most is the most fulfilling thing to do. A career in Odesk isn’t easy but with patience and perseverance, this platform might be your ticket in achieving a bigger career opportunity someday.
