If you have ever been interested in working form home, now is the best time to get into it. There are now more companies that outsourcing to workers at home than there ever have been before. Here's how to find your own job that will allow you to work from your home:
Step 1: Give honest thought to your marketable skills. There are so many ways to make money from home that you likely have some skill that can be used to work from home. You may be able to tutor kids (yes, online!), design websites, translate documents or provide professional photographs. Even if your primary skill is taking business phone calls, there are jobs for you that use that skill.
Step 2: Decide whether you need to enhance your skills before starting out. You may want to take a class to brush up on your skills or to get updated information in your field. If you already have updated skills that can be used right away, there is no need to do this.
Step 3: Find out about the jobs available online in those fields. Read through forums, chat rooms and informational sites that discuss the industry and which companies are outsourcing to work to home workers. These will generally give you tips for appying for jobs and tell you which companies are currently hiring. Look at the websites of companies that have a need for your skill. Consider applying directly to them with a resume and cover letter instead of waiting for an opening.
Step 4: Scan through CraigsList ads and local online classifieds. Companies of all sizes use CraigsList for its free clasifieds that are accessible nationwide. You can also find private clients that way if you want to go that route.
Step 5: Look at job websites like Indeed and Monster to find current job listings. You can also sign up for customized emails from job websites that email you when a new job that meets your specifications becomes available.
