    I am not sure about a dream job but I am great at organizing. The only time it falls short is when I end up ill and then everything that I have worked to set into a good routine falls apart. I wish I could figure out a good grace to handle it all, even when I am sick.

    Arcanaa, I think that we all struggle with things falling apart when the unforeseen happens. The important thing is picking back up quickly. Organization is a great skill to have. I wish I was a natural at it but for me it’s a constant struggle.

    I’m really well trained at customer service de-escalation and have worked level 3 customer service and de-escalation when I was working my way up the ladder to department manager at a major financial corporation. I think a WAH customer service job would be great for me. The only problem is that this type of job requires you to work set hours and I never know when Gran will need me to help her so I can’t have something with a set schedule or something that I can’t walk away from for a few minutes and then come back to easily.

      Feiry,

      A great WAH customer service company is http://join.liveops.com/ you don’t have a set schedule and if you decide to set your own schedule it is done by 30 min increments. It was great when my son was a baby, I would sign on during nap time and sign off when he woke up then schedule myself overnight. It’s independent contractor and you are paid per min so the only downside is that you only get paid during a call but I noticed night time had back to back calls so I did pretty well with it.

    For me, customer service is a given but I have worked in so many different settings I don’t think fitting into just one category does it for me. I would love to consider myself a Jane of all trades and master of some, but I don’t think you can really put that down on a resume.

    I’ve spent most of my life in customer service and as much as I like it I’d rather do something else that doesn’t involve calling people. My skills are data entry and research. If someone needs something I can usually find it for them. I’m also computer literate, so I can figure most computer things out and learn programs fairly quickly.

    I think my skill number one would be customer service. I’ve been working in this field for over 10 years now. I’m also a fast typist and I have some experience in transcription.

    Its a confronting question. I think it is a necessary one. I think the funny thing is that we all have skills and proficiencies and they are likely very transferable. It is hard though to actually credit yourself when you are asked to give account of yourself.

    I’m really good with fixing and repairing computers. I also have a lot of training in data entry and customer service. Data entry isn’t the easiest to find a work at home position for.

    My skills tend toward quick transcription and research. I’m very good at finding information and really enjoy it. My day job is in customer service so I tend to stay away from that skill set when working online.

    I think my biggest skill is writing articles, blog posts and product reviews. I have recently started learning to play with Adobe Photoshop and so far I am really enjoying it.

    My biggest skill is graphic design. However, chances of finding work from home in this field are slim to none. Or maybe, I haven’t looked in the right place.

    I think reading and writing are my two best skills, so I tend to look for writing, proofreading, and editing gigs. I also like to bake, though, and thought about trying to make goodies from home to sell at Valentine’s Day and other big ‘junk food holidays.’

    I too am really good at writing and editing, so this is something that I always look for. Another thing that I am really good at is anything that has to do with art. I love having the freedom of being able to create things and then seeing other people enjoy them. This is something that I would really like to get into, but I don’t know where to start.
