Looking for work from home jobs with a training program?
Before you accept an offer, determine if it's a scam, or legitimate!
Comparing the traits of both:
Work From Home Jobs with a Legitimate Training Program:
- Experience and/or special skills will most likely be required.
- A specific level of education/degree will be required.
- The offer clearly specifies the job requirements and expectations.
- An interview is required.
- No payment is required for their training program or manual.
- They will pay for your time during training.
Work From Home Training Program Scams:
- No experience or special skills required.
- No interview is required.
- The entire process is too easy and offered to anyone.
- Payment is required for the work from home program or manual.
- You may, or may not receive an actual training manual.
There are different versions of the scam. If you do actually receive a training manual in return for payment, it may be that they figure it will reduce their chance of being reported.
As you search for a legitimate work from home aka, 'remote' or 'telecommuting' position, play it safe!
Never send money for training materials to someone claiming to be a prospective employer.
A legitimate employer will not require you to pay for training materials or manual.
The work from home training program scam is one you can easily avoid!
One final point:
There are legitimate e-books offering tips with how to search and find legitimate work from home opportunities. This article isn't about legitimate guides.
Those e-books may be offered free, or they may be an e-book requiring purchase.
Take the time to learn the differences with offers so you can move forward into a positive direction.
