Have any mums taken on typing jobs whilst at home? I would like to know how much work do they require? I am a stay at home mum but I also study part time and not sure if I have enough time to do this work as well as study. Any information from mums that have done this would be appreciated. TIA

  • I haven’t done typing from home. I would say they will only give you as much work as you are prepared to do. If you want part time I’m sure they will accommodate

  • yeah just search the net for jobs. i never see this opportunity come along though

  • how did your search go?

  • try looking into something like freelancer.com

  • I think you would have to canvas small businesses to see if they will do something like this

  • I hope you find what your looking for , this would be an ideal job

  • I think this job is sound easier than it actually is. Much more time consuming than people imagine.

  • I would also love to do this.

  • would also like to know :)

  • I’ve looked into this as I thought it would be perfect for me. However I found it can be challenging to attract regular work, and the deadlines are quite strict, so if you have a sick little one, or anything unexpected happens, you may lose the job. Good luck! :-)

  • I tried this when my first born was only young.
    Lasted about 2 weeks & found that it was too difficult to allocate the time that was required in the home environment. There was always something needed doing & I would put it first.
    Was much better leaving the house & having the little one minded as I could focus on work.
    Different solutions for everyone though…
    Good luck!

  • 4-5 hours dedicated time a day sounds like a lot of work for supplementary income. People have posted some very positive comments though! I will follow this with interest!

  • Become a member of https://au.linkedin.com/ and join an Australian network of those wanting employment.

  • I would love to do this too, it would suit me perfectly!

  • Where do you find these jobs. I would love to do something like this from home would work perfectly for me.
