I'm looking for at real at home job. Are there any legit one's out there?

Want to work at home, (who doesn't) but there are so many scams out there it's hard to know which one's are real. I can type, I have the internet, printer, fax, scanner all the things I need. Just don't know who to trust. Any suggestions??

  • see if there is a convergys in your area. they do csr work for directv. they have jobs onsite and now offer wah positions. you'd basically receive incoming calls for directv billing, general technical support...etc. only thing is you'd have to pay for the program for your computer (one time fee), you'd have to go to onsight training for 2 weeks during the day, and you'd have to be on your computer at home your entire shift (except for breaks...). it's not a good job to have if you have a new baby or loud kids; you cant get up in the middle of a call to take care of them lol. but they pay well, have great benefits and you'd get free directv

  • You can search the job boards for positions that match your skillset and have a telecommute option. Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely? If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). For more information, go to Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization, I also do career and job search coaching. Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions about resumes, cover letters, job search strategy & interview preparation. -Robin
