More Resources To Find Work-At-Home Jobs
Want to find more jobs? Here are some of the sites I use to find jobs. These resources list hundreds of jobs in a variety of categories. Please note that the listings below are NOT jobs (jobs are posted above). These are services that provide work-at-home job announcements. Some are free and some aren’t. While you never ant to pay a company to hire you, it is okay to invest in a service that can help you find a job. The services below are the ones I use.
Telecommuting Job Databases (fee required to access these services)
FlexJobs– Has tons of work-at-home and flexible job options plus a personalized login system that will identify jobs that fit your criteria, ability to have multiple resume profiles, job search tips and checklists, and much more! For the number of jobs and added service, its a must use for the serious work-at-home job hunter.
HomeJobStop has over 100 jobs in clerical, and more in customer service, writing, transcription, miscellaneous plus 100’s of others. Very affordable.
Free job search sites (you need to search by keyword to find work-at-home jobs on these sites).
NEW! oDesk – Tons of freelance jobs in administrative support, customer service and more!
Beyond.com- Check out this video on how to find work-at-home jobs on Beyond.com.
Not long ago, Sara Sutton Fell the CEO of FlexJobs.com allowed me a sneak peak inside her database of work-at-home jobs and flex-work related services. I’m always on the lookout for great work-at-home job related resources, so I was particularly interested in seeing what FlexJobs had to offer. What I found is that it offers quite a bit. Not only can you search for work-at-home or other flexible work options, but the site allows you to personalize your services so that you get updates on new jobs that fit your interests and the ability to have multiple resume profiles. From within the FlexJob dashboard you can save or apply to a job and even send it to a friend.
FlexJobs.com offers jobs in 55 categories including accounting, call center/customer service, education, marketing, research, and transcription. It also offers various search options including by job type, company name, and location. Plus there are checklists, articles, and other tools to help you improve your resume and job search.
Like most telecommuting job databases, FlexJobs is not free, but is well worth the price ($49.95/year or $14.96/mo) for the SERIOUS job hunter. And by serious I mean someone who is committed to finding a work-at-home job AND understands that home-based jobs are like traditional jobs that require specialized skills and experience. Someone who is still hoping to sign up to type at home is not suited to FlexJobs (or working at home for that matter).
For people wondering about the rule that you should not pay for a job, let me remind you that the rule is actually that you shouldn’t pay to be hired. It’s okay to pay for services that can help you get a job such as resume writing help or a good telecommuting database. In the traditional work world, it’s not uncommon to pay for resume help or other services to get a job. The same is true in the work-at-home world. What you don’t want to do is to pay someone to HIRE you. FlexJobs.com is simply a service that can speed up the process of finding legitimate work-from-home jobs.
There are not many telecommuting databases that I recommend, but FlexJobs.com offers not just a database full of flexible jobs, but also tools and resources to help you be successful in your work-at-home job search. For anyone who is clear on their skills and experience, and is dedicated to finding a work-at-home job, FlexJobs.com can be a worthwhile resource.

Fake check scams were the subject of last week’s Hall of Shame and they are again this week. I ran across a news article in which fake check scammers were targeting college students. I really wonder how some of these people sleep at night. And I wish I could be there when karma steps in.
The challenge of avoiding fake check scams is that there is no one way they are promoted to make it easy for you to avoid. For example, I can tell you to stay away from envelope stuffing. That’s a straight forward direction. But fake check scams are advertises as a variety of jobs including customer service, mystery shopping, payment processing, administrative support. Since there are many legitimate jobs in these areas, I can’t say to stay away from them. The best advice I can give you is to NEVER use your personal bank account to help a company do business. Legitimate companies never need assistance with banking issues.
