        2. Telecommuting Resumes: Tips and Tricks to Create a
           Professional Home Office Image by Sylvie Charrier
        If you have spent any time at all in applying for
        telecommuting positions, you already know how frustrating
        the process can be.

        First, you have to filter through all the garbage to find
        those rare gems. Then, you need to send off your resume to
        an employer who may never meet you and expect that employer
        to hire you based on your existing resume.

        Did you know that your resume for telecommuting has to be
        different from your resume for regular onsite positions?
        Your resume for a telecommuting job has to be your main
        sales pitch. It says everything the employer needs to know
        to hire you, so having a professional image is very
        important. You may never have the chance to sell yourself
        in person with an interview, so you need to make your
        first impression a good one!

        The standard resume has a goal of landing you an interview,
        while the telecommuter's resume has the goal of landing
        you the job. You need to include more information in a
        compact format that sums up your most important assets
        and employment history.

        This section provides a one paragraph overview of what
        you want in a job and what you can offer the employer.
        This is the first thing an employer will read, so make
        it snappy and exciting!

        Overview or Summary
        This section should be a bulleted section which briefly
        outlines your skills. Start each line with an action word,
        like this:

        * Designed an exciting website for a production company
        * Organized a team of sales professionals
        * Created a new advertising concept for a start up company
          which required an expert consultant
        * Sold over One Million Dollars in computers for an online

        As you can see, these types of action words get the attention
        of the reader.

        One of the most essential parts of a successful
        telecommuter's resume is the keywords section. Many large
        employers have a resume scanning program which scans in your
        resume without anyone ever actually reading it. Create a
        section called Technical Experience or Skills and make a
        list of every software program you have ever worked with,
        including those freeware programs you downloaded and played
        with. Separate the words with commas, like this: Microsoft
        Word, Microsoft Excel, etc. if your specialty is data
        processing, make sure you include your fastest typing speed
        here and accuracy level.

        Employment History
        The most common section of any resume is the employment
        history section. This is where you have the chance to say
        where you worked and what you did there. The common format
        employers are used to seeing is the chronological format,
        with the most recent position listed first. Feel free to be
        excited about your experience. Use a lot of action words to
        describe what you did and how you contributed to the success
        of the company you worked with.

        Outline your educational background here and provide an
        overview of what you enjoyed most about the courses you took.

        In this section, try and make a note about interests that
        relate to your work. I realize that some employers are
        looking for what kinds of things you do outside of work,
        but try to stay focused on things that relate to what you
        do, like reading or research on the web.

        Types of resumes you will need
        You will need many different resumes in anticipation of
        sending them in many formats.

        You will need an ASCII text resume to paste into an email
        or online application. If you rely only on your Word
        formatted resume, employers may never read it. Some email
        programs will automatically delete any attachments, so
        avoid sending your resume as an attachment if you can. If
        you are looking for more than one type of job description,
        be prepared with different resumes for different occasions.
        Your resume should focus on the type of job you are
        applying to.

        You will need a Formatted resume, preferably created in
        Microsoft Word (the most common word processing application)
        to send as an attachment only if the employer has specified

        Use colors to spice it up, but stay away from red! Red
        evokes an angry emotion, and that is not the goal! Use
        soft blues, grays, and soft greens to highlight the
        sections. You will also need this to apply by mail or fax.
        If you are looking for more than one type of job description,
        be prepared with different resumes for different occasions.
        Your resume should focus on the type of job you are
        applying to.

        You should have an online resume that is created with meta
        tags firmly established. Some employers and recruiters
        search the web for skilled personnel who have their resume
        posted, so make sure yours can be found online! There are
        many free webspace providers, but unfortunately, those
        resumes aren't easily found, simply because the web address
        is not unique. Your resume may not be indexed at all, or
        it may be located in the 600th spot, which doesn't do you
        any good. It may be worth it for your resume to be posted
        on your own domain or with a service which gets good search
        engine results like ours. You stand a better chance of being
        found this way.

        There are many telecommuting positions out there if you
        know where to look, but that is only the first step. You
        can beat out the competition if you present a professional
        image to the employer. Don't forget the importance of a
        good cover letter and have a few different ones ready to
        send out to land the telecommuting job of your dreams!

        3. Priorities and Planning for New Business Owners by
           Linda Eberharter
        You know without a doubt that there is a real possibility
        via the Internet to start and be successful at your own
        business. If you already have your product in mind, you're
        a step ahead. If you don't and you have been searching
        online for ideas, you have undoubtedly found there are

        That is good  news and bad news. You should do your own
        research and get a  feel for the land but be aware it is
        very easy to become  overwhelmed. There is excellent
        guidance, advice and ideas  to be found and if not
        careful you will find yourself  shelling out quite a
        lot of money to attain it. Again, that  is good for it
        is an investment yet also bad because there  is so much
        out there that is good you could easily fall into  buying
        more than you need or can afford.

        If you have never been in business before (which many
        of  you haven't) and you don't have any sort of business
        or  marketing background, jumping right in with both feet
        could  easily prove disastrous.

        It is said that 85% of Internet  businesses fail. The main
        reason is lack of planning. Now,  that is something you can
        control and it should not be the  contributing factor to
        potential failure. You must have a plan.

        First, you must decide what your  business will be. Look at
        your interests, your passions and  where your expertise
        lies. You certainly can get ideas from  opportunities offered
        on the Internet, but stay away from  those that promise you
        fantastic riches or ask you for up  front money plus monthly
        payments. You do not need to spend  money on researching
        what sort of product you want to sell.   Just do your

        Once you have determined what avenue you want to take, you
        must take into consideration time management. If you have
        always been working a 40 hour week you have had a scheduled
        time to perform your job. As your own boss, the time is your
        own. As desirable as that may sound, it can quickly present
        a problem.

        You must determine how much time you can devote  to your
        new business. It would be best to keep a time table  of
        the tasks and responsibilities you will have to perform
        on a weekly basis.

        If you are easing into this and still  keeping your full
        time job (very advisable), you must take  into
        consideration any family members and their take on it.
        It is extremely easy to allow distraction and
        procrastination to filter in and focusing can be quite
        difficult. Keep your timetable on a weekly basis and stick
        with it until it becomes habit.

        Make sure you register you business name. You can do this
        through you county recorder's office for a minimal fee
        (somewhere between $10 - $60). This is if you are setting up
        business as a sole proprietor which in most cases you will be.

        There are two excellent reasons for doing this at the
        beginning. The first is so it is easy to set up a business
        checking account. Most banks require your business name
        registration prior to opening an account. You need a
        business account separate from your personal account for
        accounting and tax purposes.

        The second reason is your  website will have your business's
        name displayed. Even if  you request payments to be made
        out to "Joe Smith", people  will still send payments to
        "Smith Company". If you didn't  have a business checking
        account, it'd end up quite  difficult to deposit or cash
        those payments.

        Unless you have unlimited funds, you need to determine how
        much you can comfortably afford to invest in the beginning.
        With that figure in mind it is easier to set priorities and
        the possibility of shelling out money on half researched
        items, tools or programs becomes less.

        As you do your research as to what you will need to begin
        your Internet marketing venture, remember there is a vast
        amount of resources and avenues to take. You do not need to
        invest in everything at once. A step at a time is a wiser
        choice - and should be part of your total plan.
