Tips on Finding Work At Home Jobs
Finding work at home jobs can be a difficult and frustrating task.
Most people search through online classified ads or browse through their local
newspaper to try and locate jobs that will allow them to work from home.
Unfortunately, this type of searching most often ends in disappointment.
One of the best and easiest way of finding the type of work at home job you
want is to use a employment service specializing in home based work. These
services typically have a wide variety of job listings which individuals can
When using a service to help you find work at home jobs, be very careful
if they claim that they can guarantee you a job. If these services do not
do the hiring themselves (and most don't - you typically apply directly to
the hiring company itself) then they don't have the authority to hire you.
Legitimate services will provide you with work at home job listings, but
cannot guarantee you a job. They will simply provide you with the resources
you need to find one. The application, interview, and offer process is
between you and the company doing the hiring (not the employment
You may also want to try local companies. If you see a job posting
in your area that you like, it doesn't hurt to go and talk to the
employer - even if telecommuting isn't directly stated in the job
If your job is suitable for telecommuting (for example, typing jobs
are suitable while a hardware engineering job would not be), then you
may be able to ask the interviewer if it would be possibility in the
future. Some companies will be amenable to a telecommuting day or two
if you've worked in the office and proven yourself to be a dedicated
worker who can produce quality work with little or no supervision.
Keep in mind that competition for work at home jobs is fierce; you
will have to make yourself stand out from the crowd.

Home Jobs Database
One of the best "work-at-home" databases I've found
is Home Job
Most of the listings are local to a specific area. For example,
a telecommuting position may be offered to residents only of San
Antonio, Texas. This is actually what makes Home
Job Stop 'stand out' from the rest of the databases I've seen online.
In the real world, telecommuting positions are far more often offered to
workers who live in the same area where the company conducts business.
Communication and supervision, etc. can be done much more easily this way.
Stop offers a variety of job listings in many different areas,
ranging from technical jobs, to clerical jobs, to marketing/sales,
writing, customer service, transcription, finance, and more. You apply
directly to the company doing the hiring.
Yes, most of the jobs are local -- but if you can find a job available
in your area, it might very well change your life! Their searchable
database allows you to search by job category and state. Listings
available for the United States only.
You are never charged for updated information. Search the database
24 hours a day, 7 days a week by logging into their website.
