I get email daily from people who tell me they want a work-at-home job, but all they run into is scams. I’ve even met people who tell me all work-at-home is a scam.
The truth is that there are tons of work-at-home jobs, you just have to look for the right type of work in the right place. Below I have a list of great resources that post work-at-home jobs, but before you scroll down to get them, I want to reiterate the concept of “right job.” Too many people go online hoping to sign-up for a menial job that involves typing or data entry. But legitimate work-at-home jobs are like traditional jobs. Many have the same titles (teacher, nurse, accountant, writer, assistant) and the same requirements as traditional jobs. As you use the resources below to search for work, treat your work-at-home hunt the same way you would a traditional job hunt. Look for work that requires the skills, experiences and interests you have.
As a reminder, while you never want to pay to get hired, it is okay to pay for services that screen and list legitimate work-at-home jobs. A couple of the resources below charge to access their database of jobs. I recommend these resources because they can save you a lot of time weeding out biz ops and scams from other job sites. However, I only recommend them for people who are serious about finding a work-at-home job and understand that you won’t simply sign up to stuff envelopes or type.
