Legitimate "Work from Home" job opportunities

I bet that most of us have come across the shady "Work From Home, earn $xxxx per month signs, web advertisements, and spam emails out there today. These offers obviously seem too good to be true, but how do you go about finding a legitimate job that allows you to work at home?

As a frequent listener of his show, I've heard Clark Howard frequently recommended workingsolutions.com to his radio show callers as a company offering legitimate work at home job opportunities. Working Solutions uses a model where they offer virtual office call center representative positions that allow you to work from home using your computer and broadband internet connection.

Clark also recommends a few other work at home call center sites that he has checked out and found to be legitimate:

As a self-employed IT consultant, I have the good fortune of working out of a home office myself. As long as you can find work that you enjoy doing (and pays a decent wage), it is a great way to make a living while providing you with more flexibility for personal and family time and commitments.



  • That's it...that's all that is legit? Pretty sad out of millions and billions of searches.

    When will this chang?

  • I'm sure there are many more legit opportunities out there, but they are dwarfed in size by the huge amount of bogus opportunities out there.

    I'm not sure what it would take for more employers to embrace the virtual office paradigm. Sadly, the inevitable rise of oil to $100+ per barrel may be just the catalyst that is needed.
