First of all, welcome to! Whether you are looking for part-time home employment, full-time work at home or just a way to supplement your income and make extra cash, I hope you find something suiting.
If you are new to searching for work at home, you may feel overwhelmed, but there are some ways to simplify your work at home search.
Below are a few tips to help you get started.

Determine The Type of Work From Home You Are Looking For

There are many ways to work at home, but not everything will be a great fit. In order to narrow your search, you may want to answer the following questions:
1. What are your skills?
2. What are you qualified to do professionally?
3. What is your level of education?
4. Do you want to work full-time or part-time?
5. Do you need steady income or just a way to make extra cash?
6. Do you prefer a job at home that requires you to stick to a schedule or do you prefer to work when you want?
7. Are you willing to accept a remote job that requires use of a land line telephone?
The type of work online or work at home and the amount of money you can you can expect is determined by many of the same factors that determine the type of work and pay you can expect with a job outside of the home. The less experience and/or education you have, the more limited you are. However, if you don’t have a lot of professional experience, education, etc., this does not mean you can’t find decent work at home, it just means you will have to be more open to the type of work at home you are willing to do. Maybe you just want a way to work independently, but you don’t want to be stuck at home all day. If this is the case, I strongly recommend checking out the Court House Research, Promotional, Merchandising and Mystery Shopping categories. These are some great ways to make money that require little experience but require both work outside of the home and some reporting at home.
  • Narrow Your Search Based On The Categories

Some of the positions listed require professional experience. For instance, you wouldn’t want to visit the Health Care, Medical Transcription or Legal categories if you have absolutely no experience in these fields. If you don’t have a strong professional background, some great entry level categories include the Writing categories, Customer Service, Telemarketing and some of the categories that include “Paid To” are great! Writing online is one of the absolute best ways to make money online and you don’t have to be a professional writer.  If you have decent administrative skills, you might want to check out the Virtual Assistance category.
  • Apply For Several Positions

A big tip to increase your chances of finding work at home or work online is to apply for as many positions as you can that match your qualifications and preferences. Many of the companies in the directory receive numerous applications daily. After you apply, sign up for some of the easier positions and start making some extra cash. Many of the writing positions will allow you to sign up immediately.
  • Create a High-Quality Resume and Maintain a Professional Attitude

Depending on the employer and the position, you will either be required to submit a resume, fill out an online application or both. A very common mistake people make is getting lazy about providing a well-written resume or failing to fill out the entire application. You cannot afford to do this. Work at home positions are no different when it comes to professionalism that any other job you hope to land. In fact, it is wise to make it a point to stand out that much more and emphasize your strengths with work at home jobs because unlike a job you interview for in person, you don’t have a chance to make a good impression face to face; you must do so through your resume and application.
