Work at Home Jobs

Some companies do now charge for a background check.

This is not necessarily a sign of a scam, but it is quite disappointing to see companies charging potential employees for something that ought to be a cost of doing business. However, the only companies listed here that do charge such a fee have also proven to pay regularly.

Are you a stay at home mom or dad looking for a work at home job rather than a home business opportunity? You've found the spot to start looking.

To the best of my knowledge, these are all legitimate. If you find one to be a scam, let me know immediately. It will be removed from this site promptly. If you know of a legitimate opportunity that is not on this page, send it in. Not all companies will be hiring at this time.

In most cases, I do not recommend you pay for job lead websites. Too many simply fail to keep their list updated. However, I have found Home Job Stop to be an exception to that rule. The owner does an excellent job and even has employers come to her to look for employees. The jobs are screened, and the fee is for lifetime access.

Note: Surveys may or may not pay. Most will pay only in points towards a drawing. They aren't really jobs, but it seems like people like to try them anyhow.

Remember that whatever work at home jobs you may apply for, you must be at least reasonably qualified. Employers for these sorts of jobs get all too many applications for people who are desperate to work from home, and pay no attention at all to qualifications. That wastes your time and theirs, and makes it less pleasant for companies to offer these jobs.

Also, pay close attention to how you're supposed to apply, and if the company welcomes queries about how your application is going. Many do not want to be contacted with these questions, and will only contact you if they want to interview you for the position. Ignoring this doesn't make you look better - rather to the contrary in most cases. A big part of home based work is being able to follow directions without being reminded.

Work from home jobs are out there; this is just the first challenge on your road to a job of your own. Don't be too disappointed if your hunt takes time; last I checked it often takes months to find a job outside the home, and those are often easier to find. Be patient, do your research and watch out for scams.

Now go out there and make the most of your search!
