Where can I Find a Work from Home Job?

Man Working At Home

With the economy in such dire straits, more and more people are looking to supplement their incomes. One way to do that is with work from home jobs. There are many benefits to such a job opportunity if you can find one.

A work from home job is a privilege many are seeking to try. Some of the benefits are easy to see. Less money is spent on gas when the commute to and from work is cut out. Parents can spend more time with small children and save on childcare bills with a home-based job.

There are other benefits of a work from home job that may not be apparent right away, but they soon take shape. Working from home can be less stressful. The political climate of the office is a distant memory. The only attitude you have to deal with is your own. You have more freedom to organize the work day to suit your needs.

But, where can you find a work from home job? There are more people looking than there are jobs, but that doesn't mean you won't find one. When you do find one, however, being prepared to act will make all the difference.

Begin with your current employer. Many employers are willing to pay someone in their office to work from home. That cuts your commute and their overhead. Even if coming out of the office wasn't an option before, your work ethic and good track record with the company may get them to extend such an allowance. It wouldn't hurt to ask.

It is helpful to know what type of work you are looking for. Someone who enjoys sales could then move to established sales companies that specialize in the home business model. That includes some that you probably know well: Mary Kay, Arbonne, The Pampered Chef, Partylite. You pay upfront for a starter kit, but the company offers support for new sellers and all the helpful information they can throw at you.

Look to the Internet. There are reputable sites that offer jobs without a commute. The well-known job search engines can help you: Monster (www.monster.com), Craigslist (www.craigslist.com), CareerBuilder (www.careerbuilder.com), Yahoo! HotJobs (http://hotjobs.yahoo.com), Media Bistro (www.mediabistro.com).

If you are a freelancer, there are also places for you. Writing, website design, programming, and other specialties can find freelance jobs online. Sites like eLance (www.elance.com), Associated Content (www.associatedcontent.com), Constant Content (www.constant-content.com), and others offer opportunities for freelancers to make some money.

Another way to find work from home jobs is to join forums. Forums for stay at home parents, stay at home moms, and working at home parents provide support as well as information on job leads and how to run your home enterprise.

A work from home job is possible, but you have to do the legwork to find the job opportunities that are right for you. Any of the sites mentioned above can start you on the right track.
