Want to work from home? How to find real work at home jobs
It has literally taken me about 3 years to start making real money from home. By real money I mean money that I can actually pay a few bills and not just gas money. Finding those bill paying job can be very difficult.
The best advice I give to people who ask me how to recognize a scam job from a real one I just tell them to that «if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is» However, even I have to admit that it can be hard to spot which are the good ones and which are not so research, research, research and trust your gut instincts.
How I found many of my first jobs from home doing freelance writing came from work-at-home forums. Many of the people that I meet in the forums were very helpful, and many of forums have lists of places to find work from home.
Websites like Craigslist have work at home job listings, but this is where the research really comes in. When searching for a work at home job, in the search section select 'Telecommute' and you will find a selection of job where you can work partially or fully from home.
Job search engines such as Indeed.com you can find work from home positions by typing «work from home» in the search bar.
My general strategy after checking my usual job listings write down a few that I have a questions about and visit the work at home forums to see if anyone has had any experience with them.
What do I do from home?
I think the better question is what don't I do from home...lol While some will find phone jobs left and right, if you have a house with 2 kids and 3 dogs a phone job is out of the question. I tried it when I was pregnant with my daughter,and that did not work. I have found freelance writing to be my calling, and I make good money doing this before I started blogging and along with blogging. In freelance writing the key is finding the right client to work with.
Where do I go to find work at home job?
I have a number of places I have searched. Aside from the work at home forums. If you do not mind writing the top two places I check are:
WAHM.com — Job leads and a ton of information and articles on working from home.
WorkPlaceLikeHome.com — Job leads and a wealth of information
freelancewritinggigs.com — Jobs are added daily
jobs.problogger.net/- not sure exactly when jobs are added
Another place I check for work at home jobs (not just writing)- realwaystoearnmoneyonline.com I have found quite a few job leads here and one that paid off pretty good.
If you currently work from home I would for you to share where you find job leads.
Thanks again for giving more resources for me to check!
