    Happy 2013!

    This January is the perfect month to go out and find a new job. Perhaps you are looking for a second part-time income or maybe even a full time income. Whatever the case for you, rest assured that there are many work at home jobs out there, just waiting to be filled by people like you.

    Dust off your resumes and set aside some time this weekend to check out and apply to the companies I will be listing for you below and then just sit back and wait for those e-mails to come flooding into your inbox with a formal request for an interview!

    By the way, you do have a sharp resume, don't you? If you don't, now is the time to get one together. You'll want to stand out so make sure it is as great as you can get it. In fact to help you out, I have included a free sample cover letter for you at the bottom of my newsletter. Feel free to use this as your own cover letter.

    Ok, so back to business..

    There are some pretty great work at home companies that are hiring right now but if you are interested in applying, you should act quickly before their hiring spree is over. This month's newsletter will focus on HOT work at home jobs. And by hot, I mean any open slots these companies have may be gone by next week. However, if you are looking to get hired and start working by the end of this month, then applying to these companies is the way to go!

    Without further ado, let's get started..

    Work at home companies that are hiring right now:

  • Virtual Bee

    This company, (formerly KeyForCash now Virtual Bee) is offering data entry work to qualified applicants. If you have heard of KeyForCash then you know how difficult it is to get hired by them simply because once people get hired, they stay at this company.. there is no high employee turnover rate here!
