The Best Work-at-Home Jobs When You Live in a Small Town

The Best Work-at-Home Jobs When You Live in a Small TownBy Kimi Clark

When you live in a small town, it can be hard to find a job, period. That’s one reason working from home has become so popular. (And because it’s awesome!)

But just what are the best work-at-home gigs in a small town? Of course, you’ll want to do your own research, but here’s a list to get you started.

Find a Remote Job.

One complaint I constantly hear is … “Why isn’t this work-at-home gig available in my state?!” There are many reasons why certain jobs are not available in all states; ranging from state regulations in regards to Independent Business Owner (IBO) status and release of information, to cost effectiveness, efficiency, taxation issues, and location-based training requirements.

To help fast-track your job search here are some nationwide companies that hire remote Customer Service Reps:

How to Know if That Potential Work From Home Job is a Scam

How to Know if That Potential Work From Home Job is a ScamBy Kimi Clark

Maybe you desperately want to find a work from home job that will allow you to leave the rat race and be more present for your family. But with all the scams out there, how do you know if the job you’re applying for is a scam?

While the internet makes it easier to find the good stuff, unfortunately, it also brings out the crud in people (and businesses!) You should always make sure you know exactly what you’re getting into to avoid any horrible mistakes, possibly significant ones.

Here are a few things you should know to steer clear of red flags and avoid the scams:

Never Pay For A Job.

If the company asks you for money upfront, don’t fall for it, it’s most likely a scam. Now I’m not talking about a direct sales business where you have to invest in a startup kit or materials to get started, but a work-at-home position with an established company should never ask you to pay them to begin working for them. The chances of you ever seeing your money back are pretty non-existent.

Watch What Google Says.

Always do your due diligence and research a potential employer before beginning work. Look at reviews, and even type in the company name with the word ‘scam’ after and see what comes up. Chances are if you find several scam posts about them on Google — you’d better watch out! (more…)

Want To Know If Workshifting Is Right For You? Ask Yourself These Four Questions

Want To Know If Workshifting Is Right For You Ask Yourself These Four QuestionsBy Anum Yoon

Once upon a time telecommuting or work outside of a traditional office setting was practically synonymous with “working from home.” However, this is no longer the case. There are those who work from coffee shops, park benches, and even hotels. Some might be getting work done on airplanes.

Workshifting is increasingly popular among a generation of working-age young Americans who want the freedom to earn money while not being practically bound to an office desk.

But before getting carried away about the ideals attached to workshifting, it’s important to ask yourself whether or not this type of work is right for you.

Here are four questions to ask in order to get an idea of whether or not remote work is something you should do.

1.) Does Your Career Field Make Workshifting Possible?

First and foremost, you should know for sure whether or not your work is something that can translate into an off-site career. For many jobs, it’s imperative that you are physically available.

For example: Positions at hospitals, drug rehab centers, or clinics typically don’t offer that level of flexibility. (more…)

Best Cities to Work From HomeBy Sarah Landrum

Working from home is a trend that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere any time soon. In fact, it seems as though more and more companies are adapting their offices and tasks to make working from home more plausible for their employees. This cuts down on costs for employers and makes employees happy, working from the comfort of their own homes.

Because this trend is growing, it’s possible for you to live anywhere you want, in any city you want, depending on your occupation. This begs the questions: What’s the best possible city to work in when you work out of your home? This list takes into account Internet speed, cost of living, general happiness of citizens and even more.

San Francisco

San Francisco is the perfect place to live if you work from home. It’s a fantastic city with a mild climate. Cost of living can get pretty expensive, but the city still offers fast Internet, great businesses and companies to work for, along with beautiful views and delicious food. The city is even working on getting Internet connections on public transportation vehicles.

Washington, D.C.

Working for the government has never been easier. There are actually laws in place that mandate government agencies to allow their employees to work from home, so naturally, living there is a great place for a telecommuter.
