Why These Hiring Companies Want A Real Girl Like You

Why These Hiring Companies Want A Real Girl Like You

You may not believe this (because the internet does weird things to skew our perception) but I’m a very “real” and “normal” girl. One time my pastor actually called us “regular people”. I was momentarily offended and then realized he was so right!

And do you know who is behind these virtual work opportunities we post each week? More real people. People you will email, and eventually pick up the phone or video conference and talk to with your real voices.

So don’t hesitate as you are reading these and think “these aren’t for a normal girl like me.” Because most all of us are just normal people saying  “Hey! I’ll do that. Here’s my rate.”

You virtually shake and get to work.  Then, a paycheck shows up and you smile bigger 🙂
