Work from Home Frequently Asked Questions

What keywords should I use when searching for a work from home position?
– In your search, include terms like “Remote,” “Telecommute,” “Virtual,” “Freelance,” “Work Remotely,” “Home-based,” or “Work from Home.” Be sure to include at least one of these keywords so that it does not restrict your search. Also, it is helpful to explore search engines that are dedicated to work-from-home positions such as Flexjobs, Indeed, ZipRecruiter, and Glassdoor. When searching, if a regular search is not showing the results that you are satisfied with, it is a good idea to perform an advanced search.

 

How do I find a legitimate work-from-home job?  
– Performing a broad search could add hundreds of unwanted results and add additional time to your job search. Not all work-from-home jobs are offered by companies who are out of state. There are many local companies offering opportunities in various fields that may be of interest to you. According to glassdoor.com, the top companies to work remotely for include VIPKID, TTEC, Dell, Kelly Services, and Intuit. Check out the link for a complete listing of top companies.

 

How do I know if a work from home company is legit?
– It is easy to fall into the trap of illegitimate companies offering a chance of a lifetime, only for you to realize that it was all a scam. Scammers realize that there are millions of Americans out there searching for ways to make extra money and they would love to get their hands on your personal information and leave you as a victim of identity theft. Thoroughly investigate the name of the company to ensure that it is reputable. A simple Google search or BBB search will guide you through this confusion.

 

Remember, when searching for remote positions, be sure to check the source of the listing. Go Phish! (or not!) Phishing sites are sites that are designed to look real, but they’re created to be harmful. These phishing (or spammy) sites that may potentially download viruses onto your computer or mobile device. The Federal Trade Commission has excellent tips on how to spot a phishing scam.

 

The next time you apply for your next remote position, keep these tips in mind, and you’ll be on your way to securing your future career. Happy searching!

  1. I am looking for resources for a 13 year old African American boy I’ve been tutoring. It has been difficult to find mentors, free or affordable enrichment opportunities, even books at the library that he can relate to. I subscribed to your site (which is great) but it is geared toward adults. Any suggestions?

    1. Thank you for this question. We have plenty of articles on our website for youth – education, activities, homework help. We invite you to visit our home page for more information.
