Many legitimate home-based jobs and projects can be found online, but trustworthy guidance is scarce. Worse, with a 56-to-1 scam ratio in work-at-home ads, the terrain is a minefield of fraud.
Nevertheless, customer service agents, researchers, test scorers, tutors, writers, and concierges are just a few of the many people regularly hired to work from home. A growing number of Fortune 500 companies, including UnitedHealth Group, American Express, and Northrop Grumman, also hire home-based personnel.
In Work at Home Now, you'll learn:
The top insider tips on good and bad Google search terms.
How to find the "needles in the haystack" on Craigslist, Indeed, Monster, CareerBuilder, and other big sites.
Where the real jobs for mystery shoppers, transcriptionists, and similar part-time specialties can be found.
Scam-spotting tips that even law enforcement doesn't know.
Including interviews with hiring managers and successful home-based workers, Work at Home Now is the ultimate guide to finding the work-at-home job or project you want most.
