Jobs Posted on LinkedIn

I thought of 1 more work-from-home post that I need to share. If you aren't aware, businesses post job openings on LinkedIn. So, if you don't have a LinkedIn account or haven't visited your account for a while, there are always several job offers there - remote if you want to work from home, as well as hybrid and on-site if you don't mind commuting to work. You can choose your country or local businesses for remote work or local businesses only for hybrid and on-site jobs. You'll still get a mixture of all 3 choices - remote, hybrid, and on-site - but mostly your preferred working style. You'll also be able to choose the type of work you're interested in, such as web design.

If you are just now registering for a LinkedIn account, all of this will be asked upon registration. If you already have an account or want to make changes after creating your account, you simply have to click on the "Me" section at the top of the LinkedIn page (signed in). In the dropdown window, click "Settings and Privacy". On the next page that pops up, you will see "Profile Information > Name, location, and industry" to add the information necessary to see job openings in your preferred industry. 

Now, in the left side bar, you will click on "Notifications". On that page, you will see "Notifications You Receive". Click on "Searching for a Job" and be sure the toggle is set to "On" on the next page that comes up. While you're in "Notifications You Receive", you might as well select other notifications you want to receive. Don't worry; you'll never have more than 25 notifications to delete if you don't have time to check those but once a week or so.

New jobs will start showing up in the "Notifications" section at the top of your dashboard now. You'll also have a "Jobs" section at the top of the page. This is a great section when you're looking for a job, because now, you will have not only job postings, but you can also type in another specific type of job to narrow the job feed better. If you type in the job such as, "Transcription", "Data Entry", or "Website Builder", it will automatically load those types of jobs for the entire United States - or perhaps whatever country you're in. You can also get more specific and type in the city, state, and zip code you're looking to work in locally. 

From here, you can also filter remote only, hybrid only, or on-site only, salary, experience level, and more. To get out of the filtered section, click on "Home" at the top of the page and click on "Jobs" at the top of the page again. You're going to see a list on the left side of that page that will help you land a job on LinkedIn - or even outside of LinkedIn. See the list below. Here, you can see the jobs you have saved, your preferences, and demonstrate your skills, which has more information on how to do that when you click on that. Interview prep shows you the most popular questions that are asked during interviews so you can prepare your answers. The resume builder guides you through creating a resume from scratch or uploading and improving one you may already have. Job seeker guidance has tons of informative articles to help you land a job. Application settings is information you want to send to employers when you apply to jobs. I have 3 resumes to highlight each of my skills - 1 for transcribing, 1 for data entry, and 1 for proofreading.

When you're ready, you can click "Apply" on any job that interests you on LinkedIn. Most will allow you to apply within LinkedIn. Some may take you to their website to apply. Again, you can download and use your professional resume to apply for a job anywhere. Sometimes, even Upwork clients request a resume. Either way, LinkedIn makes it easy to prepare you for your journey.

Besides these obvious ways I've explained about job searches above, there are many other ways to grab employers' attention, such as impressive posts and profile information. Follow companies that interest you. They may notice you in return!

Happy job hunting,

Patricia

Love My Granitestone Cookware

I bought my Granitestone cookware June 3, 2023. I loved these right out of the box. Now, after nearly 5 months of use, I'll have to say this is the best cookware I've ever owned. And I've owned lots of cookware since my husband and I got married nearly 35 years ago. I'm actually considering buying one of their knife sets too. If I do, I'll leave a product review on here for those as well.  Granitestone is not paying me for this review. If you know me by now, you know that I started this website to help other women in every aspect of life that I can. Why tell you about this today ? Because I cook our meals nearly every night of the week. And I feel that 5 months is long enough to tell you about these. They haven't warped yet like most cookware does - usually after the first use. These are very heavy duty.  I really like the glass lids so I can watch my meal more closely. These lids are also vented with small holes so I don't have to tilt them to vent. It is d

Vinegar to Remove Sticker Residue

My first vinegar cleaning test involved removing an old sticker and the residue that was on the bottom of a very old glass pitcher. I've had the pitcher in my possession for about 5 years and have no idea the full age of this pitcher. So, it seemed like a good item to try the sticker/residue removal test. In my head, the sticky residue is a germ catcher not to mention a plain old eye sore, so I actually try to get rid of that residue as soon as I remove any sticker myself. The idea is to remove goo from stickers, bumper stickers, labels, decals, etc. by repeatedly wiping with vinegar. So, first, I sprayed vinegar onto the sticker/residue section of the pitcher. I let it sit for about 5 minutes then scrubbed the section with a paper towel and my nail. The sticker part came off rather easily with some umph. I sprayed more vinegar onto the residue that remained and let it stand for another 5 minutes. With a hard push with my nail over the paper towel, most of the residue came off. So
