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

Being God's Ambassador: Meditation 4

Let's prepare to meditate . Start playing your relaxing sounds/music on another device if you like accompaniment with meditation. With your tissues and water beside you, get in a comfortable sitting position. Close your eyes if you'd like. Now, relax your entire body, starting with your forehead, between your eyebrows, your jaws, your neck and shoulders, your arms and legs. Feel the tension release as you relax. Allow the stomach and shoulders to naturally rise and fall as you slowly breathe in and breathe out. Today's meditation affirmation is "I am created in the image of God. He provides everything I need to be His ambassador." Let's repeat this affirmation to ourselves as we concentrate on our breathing for a few moments.  Continue your slow, concentrated breathing as I guide you through today's meditation. Listen to Meditation 4 . In Genesis 1:26 NLT (New Living Translation), God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.” God made u

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

Idahoan Instant Mashed Potatoes

One of my favorite side dishes to make with a meal is mashed potatoes. One day, a couple of months ago when life was very busy, I just happened to notice these Idahoan  brand instant mashed potatoes with 4 servings in a grocery aisle I was going through. They had a variety of flavors, so I bought several pouches. I wondered if the dried potato flakes could be as tasty as the flavors indicated. And yes, they are to my surprise. I am very impressed. On days when I'm running behind, it's 5:00, dinner should already be served, and I'm not going to be able to start dinner for a while yet, AND mashed potatoes are planned for that meal, this will do quite nicely. Fewer dishes are involved, and it's quick. They are pretty thick, but they don't feel heavy while you're eating them. Very creamy actually.  All you need to do is: Boil 2 cups of water. Pour the boiled water into a heat-proof bowl. Pour in the dried potato flakes.  Stir with a fork until you get a thick, mashe
