Legitimate Work from Home Jobs for Homeschooling Parents
For a while, I worked as a fitness instructor. I also worked as an internet researcher for a while. Then I started writing and selling articles, as well as monetizing my blogs and websites. I’ve talked to other parents who have started businesses, done medical transcription, worked as translators, and also worked as different kinds of contractors like graphic artists or professional organizers.
Sometimes, though, that perfect job is pretty tough to fine. Ok, any kind of satisfactory at-home job is hard to find. It’s especially hard if we’re not sure what we want to do, don’t want to invest in starting a business, and don’t want to spend a lot of time trying to find clients as a contractor. Many of us have turned to the internet looking for job opportunities that we can do at home or on while on the road carting our kids hither and yonder. But as you probably have experienced, it’s hard to weed through all the scams and “job opportunities” to find the real, honest to goodness, jobs out there.
I found a website this morning that looks promising. It’s called Virtual Vocations. Their jobs are real, legit, jobs. The site doesn’t allow any jobs that require a buy-in. No jobs where all they want you to do is recruit other people to do the “job.” No jobs that are scams, pyramid schemes, or other kinds of questionable income. These jobs all have an hourly wage, they are supposed to have a clear job description (although it looks like some of them would require a bit more research to know what they are. For example, “blogger” is pretty vague). And some of them are very very specialized. Who knows, maybe your background might be perfect for one of the more esoteric job descriptions!
If you are a homeschooler, looking for some work from home, and you’re not into starting a business or trying to dredge up clients to find work here and there, Virtual Vocations might be a good place to start. Good luck!
Your feedback: Do you know of any other good websites with legit telecommute job opportunities? Do you have a job at home that works for you? How did you find your job? (And please, don’t ask people to contact you about the business for you to recruit them. Those comments will be deleted.)
