What are some work at home jobs that do not require upfront costs?

I am looking to work at home but I can not afford to put up fees upfront, that is why I am looking for a job because I need money. Any leads would be greatly appericated. Thank you.

  • You can search for jobs that match your skillset and have a telecommute or remote 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).

    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 three lines of business; I am doing lead generation for a sales and service organization; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization; I also do career & job search coaching. I am always happy to help cafemoms (and dads) with resumes, cover letters, job search strategy & interview prep.

  • There are no legit home JOBS where you have to pay a fee to work. You will find many many at home businesses with fees, this is not a sign of illegitimacy. Home based businesses are franchises and you are literally opening a franchise in your home. So, there are fees.

    However, if you are looking for something free, I have a list of legit home based jobs on my site...

  • Ever have one of those boxes on your TV from Neilson. Well, they pay people every day to shop, do surveyrs on what they watch, purchase, and need. NO CREDIT CARD ever and they pay you after each survey you do for them.It's not a full time job, but it can be a lot of extra money: Neilson

    Sure.  I have created a series of work at home articles on eHow.  They contain excellent resources, ideas and information.  Also, I have a Blog about computer jobs sorted into those that pay via Paypal and those that pay utilizing other means.  You can check them all out at my website:
