Stay at home jobs are easier to come by than you would think. Discover what is available and decide what type of work at home career you want.
How Do You Find A Stay At home Job?
Stay at home jobs have been on the rise since around 2008. As the internet has become faster and more enhanced, VPN connections into work have put more employees in their homes. Businesses started seeing the benefit of having remote workers. For a company, this starts reducing overhead cost.
Telecommute opportunities are more available now. You can find stay at home jobs on Craigslist, every search engine has plenty of results and job boards everywhere has listings.
For the question, "How Do You Find A Stay At Home Job"? I will start by telling you where not to find these types of jobs. Consequently, as the need has risen for stay at home jobs, so has the number of scammers.
Beware Of The Scams
In today's times, there are more and more single full time parents in need of a telecommute job. Unfortunately, low life "spam-scammers" see this as an opportunity to use and abuse people in this need. Keep in mind, any offer from anywhere that sounds too good to be true is.
These "low life's" are counting on your emotional state to be stressed and desperate for a work at home solution. In short, you are the fish and they are pretty good bait. Read more on these on my post, "Work From Home Scams".
You probably have your resume on job boards and even LinkedIn. These scamming degenerates, find your email address from these sites. The next thing you know, an email pops in your inbox offering you a stay at home job, it claims low hours and big pay. "This is a scam"
They have several reasons to want you to email them back. One, they are looking to get your IP address from your computer or device. An IP address can give them an advantage on hacking your system to get private credentials to basically rob you or steal your identity.
These emails often contain links for you to click on. These links can do pretty much what I just mentioned or can be a download to load malware or a full on virus onto your computer.
Always look at the "From" address in an email. Avoid everything that comes from "mail.ru". No business is going to send you a job offer from a Yahoo or Gmail account. You know it is a scam if the email is from "email@example.com" offering you a job from a company called Brass Rings. The majority of companies have domains, so it should be more like, "firstname.lastname@example.org.
Emails That Just Want To Sell You Something
There will be emails with something like, "Start Your Online Business Today", or "Make Money From Home". It is possible that these can be legit programs and it is certainly worth checking it out. However these are usually wanting you to buy into a program that are made more for Internet Marketers.
Online Marketing may be an interest of yours and it can make people big money. Although, if you are looking for a job or a way to start your own business, this probably wouldn't be for you.
These type emails are made to get you hyped about all the $100's or $1000's you could make in the first week. Ignore that crap, 99% of people are not going to get those results. The end result will be, you spend your money and get nothing in return.
Internet Marketers think they are helping people that are wanting a stay at home job. Unfortunately, they don't understand that many people are not cut out for marketing. I have tried it and it's hard. Many people are just looking for something that can bring in money like a job but where they can stay home, something less complicated.
Ads On Websites And Emails
There is one ad that is all over websites and it comes in emails as well. It is an ad that usually reads, "Local Mom makes $27-$37/HR At Home and you won't believe how she does it". This and others made like it, are the biggest scams on the Internet, targeting people looking for legitimate jobs.
As mentioned above, if you are not seeing a legitimate company name. A company name you can check out, it's a scam. Any marketing program can make a claim that a product can make you so much an hour and you will see that a lot. However, unless it is a real business with some type of contract you can work with, don't bother with it.
The aforementioned Local Mom scam wants your money to buy into a program that sometimes isn't real. If it is the one that is real, it doesn't work. Always do reviews on any product or program offered before buying into it.
Types Of Stay At Home Jobs
One of the sad part of getting any job, in most cases it isn't anything you really want to do. Since you are looking for a stay at home job, you might as well find something you like and can even be passionate about.
There are all sorts of Survey Companies but if you are looking for an income to pay bills and don't want to stay glued to your computer all day, forget these. Surveys pay very little, although some people make money at them because they have nothing else to do.
Survey Jobs mean you stay glued to sites looking for surveys to take. What most don't know, is this is a competitive task. You are trying to beat other people to get all the surveys you can. Consider they pay anywhere from 50 cents to possibly $5 a survey, it isn't worth the amount of time you have to put in it.
There are more legitimate survey companies out there and you could make anywhere between $150 to $1500 per month. It may serve as a side income if you have the time and patients.
