Do Legitimate Work Home Jobs Exist?

Finding legitimate work home jobs can be one of the hardest and most frustrating tasks. Indeed, one simple Google search will provide thousands of results on website offering legitimate online jobs but when you actually look at these websites, they seem suspect. Which makes you wonder; do legitimate work home jobs exist? And if so, where can I find them?

Ideally, this article seeks to help in your search of legitimate online jobs. The safest bet in finding legitimate work home jobs include joining an online job marketplace such as oDesk which offers qualified professionals and individuals seeking a secondary income, a legit means of making money. How can you tell if a site is a legitimate marketplace?

The best way and in fact, the only way you can tell is if the marketplace offers a free sign up. Once a site offering jobs asks you to pay a small fee, it is, and I stress the NOT, a legitimate site. Why on earth should you pay to find or get a job where the reason you are seeking a job in the first place is to make money! Irregardless of the money being asked, once it is asked, it is spam and you could discontinue all communication right away and move on!

Secondly, it may also serve you well to find reviews on the websites, that is, what is being said about it, good and bad, so you can personally weigh your options. Usually with an online job marketplace; you may not need to seek reviews due to the diplomacy of the site, its rules and regulations laid out as well as user agreements. However, it is good to read reviews as with many other aspects in life, dishonest people exist and they will also exist on job marketplaces online; as such, it is better to be in the know of what to expect so you can decrease the likelihood of being cheated out by dishonest people.

Craigslist is also another platform in which you can find home based work but it must be noted that there is also the likelihood of dishonest people here seeking work to be done whilst not paying the contractors. Hence, you have to scout out the good from the bad. If the jobs entail an interview process; and requires you to write a sample article on their topic, there is a chance that you can be scammed as some scammers try to interview as much persons as possible; asking them to create sample articles which they use as their work and never end up offering a contract or employment. Nonetheless, legitimate jobs on Craigslist exist but it just takes thorough research.

Finally, you may find legitimate work home jobs by working for an outsourcing company. An outsourcing company is usually used by online businesses and those interested in internet marketing to get their business to the next level. As such, outsourcing companies are always seeking skilled individuals to hire to perform these tasks such as link building, articles and press release submissions as well as website maintenance services.
