Telecommuting jobs offer the ability to work from home, and for some people an opportunity to gain more control over their work life. Working from home is not for everyone, and it requires discipline that some people simply don't have. For the independent soul telecommuting jobs provide greater freedom, but without being in business for themselves.
Is a telecommuting work from home job or career right for you? You'll need to make that decision for yourself, because you know if whether or not you have the right characteristics and personality to succeed in that direction.
If you're already well acquainted with the frustration of searching for a legitimate work from home opportunity, and tired of running into dead-ends with the work from home scams, this information will help.
Here's two quick tips to get you started with finding a work from home solution:
1). Forbes completed an article featuring the top 100 companies offering work from home opportunities for this year. Just when you thought there might not be many places to search, you will probably be overwhelmed with so many work from home choices!
2). The list Forbes provided was generated from the site Flexjobs. If you don't want to limit your search to the top 100 companies, and want to search with more specific parameters for telecommuting opportunities, give Flexjobs a try.
There is one catch though - yeah, I'm sure you may have been wondering if there was a catch! If you find a job on their site you're interested in, you will need to register on their site, and the only way you can access the information for the company offering the position is by a paid subscription. However, if you're serious about finding a flexible telecommuting position with a legitimate company offering a real job and not a scam, it may be worth the subscription price to pursue it.
If I were able to make a suggestion to Flexjobs, it would be for them to offer one free month trial subscription.
If you're looking for a legitimate work at home job I hope that may send you in the right direction, and save you time. After all, time is money and the less you waste on unfruitful searches, the more you will save!
