Yes, there are many legitimate jobs available online, though exactly what will work for you will depend on your own skill set. Where most people tend to stumble in their online job search is that they're looking for unreasonably high pay for unreasonably low effort, and that just doesn't happen...an online job is still a job, and requires a lot of work. I personally chose to go the freelancing route -- writing and transcription -- and now, after three years full-time, three of my clients form the bulk of my income. Others may choose to take lower pay for steadier hours, benefits from employers, etc. I know people who have found jobs as an answering or call service, technical help, research, data entry, website design, software design, and more. It's certainly not one of those things that you can just type in "online jobs" and expect a search engine to turn up legitimate results. Pick your industry, or research based on the skills that you have, and start your job hunt from there.
