The Perks of Working at Apple

Can there be any more perks to working at Apple? Yes there can.

Can there be any more perks to working at Apple? Well, at this week's Apple town hall meeting Tim Cook, Chief Executive Officer at Apple, announced a pretty sweet deal for Apple employees.

Apple employees already receive a 25 percent discount on Apple products, reportedly. It seems that the executives at Apple are giving some more back to the employees who worked so hard to develop the popular tech products of the company and who have contributed to the success of Apple in the United States and around the globe.

Take Advantage of Google Alerts

While visiting the WAHM.com forum this week, I came across an excellent way to keep on top of the online job market. At first I thought Google Alerts was just for individuals who had a passion or favorite niche that they wanted to stay up to date with. I was totally wrong. It can actually be used to locate Internet jobs.

I’ll give you an example of how Google Alerts works. I go to their homepage and type a search query in the box. Since I work as an online article writer, I would type something like “article writer wanted.” If you had a different type of job in mind, just type in the search query box what an employer would type if he was seeking someone in your field.

Make Money with CreateSpace

"So if you like writing and are knowledgeable in a specific niche, start making money online through CreateSpace."


I was first introduced to CreateSpace by my daughter. She completed the NaNoWriMo Young Writer’s Program during the month of November. As a result of this, she was given five free copies of her novel at CreateSpace.

I was amazed to discover that CreateSpace allows you to create your book for free. They don’t have any membership fees, and even give you a free ISBN. It took us about two hours to get the book completely submitted because we didn’t know ahead of time that there were templates that can be used to make the submission process easier. My daughter really wanted to use the cover that her best friend designed, so we pressed on until CreateSpace accepted the book.
