I need your help. I know that many of you are interested in working from home. I work from home sometimes too. My work often involves long conversations with people on the opposite coast, and I have to conduct these phone meetings in the late evening, so I do it from home. It does involve real work, and so do the work at home opportunities I have compiled.
I got started putting this together a few years ago when a candidate of mine needed to work from home for personal reasons. I had no clients that offered telecommuting positions. He did end up getting a job from the work I did for him. He was a database administrator, and I had placed him a couple of times in his career, so I did this for him as a courtesy.
It was at this time that I started to do more extensive research to find companies outside of my area of recruitment, Engineering and Information Technology, to see whether there were also positions where the average person could legitimately make a living from home. I was thinking of self-publishing and marketing it, but I wanted it to have true real time value and quality, and I know that what a company is looking for today may not be what they’re looking for tomorrow. I didn’t want to have people spend money on something when they’re truly in need of some sustaining position to have to weed through dozens of jobs that may not be suited for them, or may not be hiring at that particular time when they’re already very stressed out looking for work.
I’ve recently decided to market it privately to some of my candidates by offering people only five or six positions tailored to their background and experience that I know are hiring at the current time. Also, some of the positions I have require a person to reside in certain states to be considered. I was wondering what you would consider this kind of information worth. I’m looking for a dollar value if I were to offer someone five or six positions tailored to their abilities and needs to which they could apply and possibly be hired working from home. There are no guarantees that someone will be hired, so that needs to be taken into consideration when determining the value, although there are a few of these positions that almost anyone can do, but the compensation for those is more of a part-time income than a sustaining income. So what do you think? For how much should I sell this service and information?
