Looking for a real work from home job is very much the same with looking for a day job. You undergo the same process of job hunting although you have wider options since you are not only looking among jobs available within your locality. There’s a broad range of jobs for many different skill sets. You also do away with dressing up for personal job interviews. So instead of finding the best tie for your best suit, you have to work harder on selling yourself and building your online portfolio.Persuading your potential employer to hire you without them seeing you in person can be tough if you are used to face-to-face interview. You don’t have the advantage of body langue, eye contact or even tone on your side. This call for serious plans on how grab their attention. You must grab your potential employer’s attention with simply words off a computer screen. Once you find the job you want to apply, learn the company and design your approach according to the information you learn about the company. Create a solid proposal. It should speak boldly about you without veering away from the truth. Be what the company needs – be ready to present your qualifications. Legitimate companies look for the best person for the job. Be ready to answer to that call and speak with confidence that you are indeed the perfect person one for the job.Make sure you aren’t fooled by the scammers. If a job offer lands on your email inbox, be wary especially if it is unsolicited and comes from an unknown sender. Job offers are not sent out via email just like job offers do not come knocking at your front door. Jobs do not come easy, especially at this time in our economy. Trust me when I say you will have to look for the job, it’s not coming to look for you. So you can send all those “50k a year virtual assistant” emails straight to junk mail.One thing to note is that many work from home jobs, especially the legitimate ones and the ones that fit for you are not advertised. Using your network and asking for referrals can be very helpful. Just like an office job you must look hard for the at home job that is right for you. It might take some time but it will be well worth it in the end.

It may seem obvious that attention to details when planning and executing project management is a basic management skill. The very essence of effective delegation and project execution is based on this focus. It is a core management skill and basic responsibility.Given the obvious, why do so many managers lose that focus?Effective delegation management depends on it. Taking an eye off the “attention to detail ball” has many causes. It is important to explore these roadblocks in order to cope with them and over-come the distractions needed for execution excellence.
Any manager has more than their share of interruptions. Their own To Do list is a mile long. Deadlines abound and the meeting upon meeting pattern takes too much time.
These interruptions and distractions are an all to regular part of the management weather forecast. It goes with the territory. It’s part of the game. That said, it does not have to be a reason for losing the attention to detail.
The advantages of attention to detail are many. Keeping important assignments and projects on track depends on constant scrutiny. Losing focus on the progress track or time-line for even short periods can result in problems and delays. The team losses the momentum so important to high productivity results.
Opportunities for coaching people up or implementing corrective actions are lost when focus goes missing. These are not trifling side issues. They are at the heart of leadership and management effectiveness. there is not a busy manager out there who does not struggle with the interruptions issue. It takes discipline and an organized approach to time management to cope. Allowing poor time management and organization to take away management focus, is a path to productivity problems.
The issue of problems and delays in the execution of assignments and projects is a real problem. A manager’s job is to create a “Velocity of Execution” to accelerate results. Lose sight of any important detail and things derail. Lost momentum is lost productivity. Managers are paid, and promoted, to increase productivity, not let it drop. The manager that builds a tight project plan of action, and then delegates the assignments effectively, is off to the right start. Next, comes relentless attention to detail. Tracking, monitoring, and directing the execution depends on attention to project details.Loss of coaching opportunities may be the most costly. Coaching people up is among the highest and best contributions a manager can make. One of the best management skills in coaching people, is to find the opportunities in real time. when someone needs help or makes a mistake. Quick intervention, when things are fresh, has the highest impact. People grow and gain confidence in the manager who is right on top of what’s happening.All of this is based on the management skill of attention to detail. Getting on top of this and leading is a matter of attitude. The best managers are focused and know exactly where they need to be.
