Work From Home - Telecommute
OK, we all know that there are home business opportunities available to stay at home parents. I've described some here on my blog. But what if you don't want to start your own business (or just don't have the investment funds)?
Today's technology makes it very simple for companies to hire people to work straight from home. All you need (in most cases) is a computer, high speed internet, and a phone...maybe a fax machine. So how do you find these telecommuter job postings??
Well, that's what I decided to look for today. I have found 6 different websites that offer free telecommuting job postings. So if you're looking to telecommute, whether to save gas, be home with your kids, or whatever, you've come to the right place!
The Search for Telecommuter Job Postings
When I first started my search for telecommuter job postings, I got really frustrated. Have any of you tried looking, only to come up with a bunch of websites that SAID they list telecommuting jobs...then you go to their website, and it's a list of OTHER websites that claim to offer telecommuting jobs. Then, as you wade through that list, most of those are websites with lists of websites...and so on, and so on...
Yep, I had that problem too...so, I finally came up with a good list of 6 websites that offer actual telecommuter job postings for FREE.
Free Telecommuter Job Postings
None of these sites charge you any money to search their telecommuter job postings. They are completely FREE!! OK, here we go with the actual list:
- Work At Home Careers
- The telecommuting jobs posted on this website are pre-screened. What does this mean? It means you don't have to worry about scam sites. They actually have a scam page that lists known scams, and advises you of what to look for, so you can spot a potential scam. They do advise you to research any job listing that requires you to pay a fee; this makes sense to me! Perhaps the best part is that you can actually post your resume, so potential telecommute employers can find you!
- Career Builder
- Surprised? So was I! I've gone to Career Builder searching for "typical" jobs, but I didn't know that they posted telecommuting jobs as well! How do you find the telecommuting job posts? Do a search, and in the keyword(s) field, type telecommute. The results will consist of available telecommuting job postings.
- Monster Jobs
- Again...I was surprised! But Monster, just like Career Builder, lists telecommuting jobs. All you have to do to find them is do a search, using telecommute as a keyword.
- Craig's List
- Craig's List offers telecommuter job postings, and of course, Craig's List is FREE. Go to the search page, type telecommute and select Search All Jobs. Keep in mind that this will search your local Craig's list for telecommuting job postings; get more results by looking on other Craig's List pages.
- Next Job At Home
- It's free to sign up on this site as well. The only thing that is listed on the site is the signup for the free newsletter. You can also view their telecommuting job postings here, but you will get more updated telecommuting job postings by signing up for the email newsletter. They don't put job postings on the website for a few days, so I definitely recommend signing up for their newsletter!
- Work at Home
- Like the rest of these sites, here you can sign up for free. The telecommuting job postings on this site are screened, but they're NOT guaranteed to be scam free. So be sure to do your research on any company here, especially before providing any personal information. They recommend another site for guaranteed scam-free telecommuting job postings, but that site charges you $39.99 to access them.
Hopefully, this information has helped you, and you will be closer to finding a telecommuting job. I found a few that I just may apply for, haven't decided yet! I'll let y'all know.
In the meantime, please let me know if this information has helped you, or if I missed something, or if you find a job by searching on one of the sites I've told you about! I look forward to hearing from some of you!
