How To Hire Someone To Work For You In Your Work At Home Business

Working at home with a home business can be an exciting way to earn an income. It gives you independence and flexibility you may not have had working for someone else. Just because you work at home however, does not mean that if business starts picking up that you have to do all the work alone and spend 70 and 80 hours a week getting it done. You can hire someone to help you with your work. If you find that you are spending way too much time answering phones, answering emails, sending out correspondence, filing, etc., then it might be time to consider getting yourself an assistant that can help you with these things.

The first thing will will need to do is to decide exactly what type of help you are looking for. For instance an assistant can set up your appointments, reroute your calls, send out correspondence, keep your accounting up to date and even work on your website if you have one. You need to figure out which of these things you spend too much of your time on and if they can be handed off to someone else to do.

Probably one of the best things you ca do is to ask your family members or friends if they can refer anyone to you who has office skills and is in need of employment. You need someone that they can vouch for and trust. This will make your job of hiring someone a lot easier.

If you family and friends can't help you out then you can try placing ads on job boards and in small weekly publications that are published in your area. If you can afford to pay the high price of an ad in he local newspaper want ads, do that as well. If not ask if you can post your ads at different colleges, coffee houses, cafes, etc. You can also consider posting an ad on Craigslist as well.

Consider going to career centers and the employment office as well. Make sure that you have a list of all the tasks that need to be done and the different skills that are required to get those tasks done. It's important to get the word out so make sure that you exhaust all of your options.

When the resumes begin coming in make sure to look at each resume carefully and check for any type of errors in both grammar and punctuation. This is very important, especially if one of their tasks is going to be writing and sending out different kinds of correspondence.

Once you have narrowed it down to around 5 of the best resumes that came in, you are going to want to set up a one on one interview. It's a good idea to make sure to set up a meeting someplace that is neutral. Since you work from home you really don't want to conduct the interview there, for privacy and security reasons. It's different once they work with you there. So a good place might be the public library or a local coffee house.

It's important that during the interview that you pay very close attention to the person's interpersonal skills. It's important that the person is polite and very friendly, especially if they are going to be answering the phones for you. It's important to you and your business that not only do they have the skills you are looking for but that you feel comfortable with them as well.

When you hire the right person, remember that it's possible that they can either work in your home or they can work from their own home just like you. This is something that the two of you should discuss once you have hired them and both of you can figure out which might work the best.
