    Is there a legitimate online stay at home job?

    ...I can't express how sick of not finding a job making enough to pay childcare, just praying nothing serious happens, and just today learned some bad news and am hoping a job online might help, and despite my degrees and experience, I am now back in school to get yet another certification. I just want to know before jumping into anything online, has anyone done anything with incomeathome or payday or any of the sites? What sites are truly legit?

    Yes, you can find a job. I know is a great site, is fairly new, but pays. You can also find is a good site as well. Those are three writing sites I personally use. Downside is the work can come and go, but it does pay and I average about 1200 a month.

    I've been searching for months trying to find a legitimate job to do from home. There are quite a few jobs that you can do from home, but most center around customer service. Most require that you have a land line telephone and purchase your own headset. You can schedule interviews or set up reservations for hotels or answer tech questions for various companies. If you have experience in billing/coding/transcription there are jobs available in that area as well. I actually wrote a hub about legitimate online jobs a few months ago. If you're good at writing you can also check out, I hope this helps!

    You could just do the time old business of buying and selling. The internet can now bring your business around the entire world and you dont even have to pay rent for a shop.

    Some poeple sell information over the internet which means they can simply send an email after recieving payment, others buy stock and sell at a profit. All that requires is a daily trip to the post office.

    If you are needing this to pay for regular bills, I would do a lot of research to make sure that anything you choose will offer consistent and timely income.  As part hobby, part money earner, I decided to try writing online, here, a personal blog, etc.  Without a lot of hard work, that would not be a quick way to make a consistent income.

    Absolutely!  I worked extensively on a site called  You can post a profile of yourself and bid on jobs.  There is a free membership that provides you with a certain number of bids you can make and there is a paid membership that is very low cost.  I obtained a GREAT deal of work through Elance until I became disabled.  It is a safe, verified place to get contract work.  They use an escrow system for payment so you are protected.  It's a great site.  Companies and individuals post jobs they need completed and you bid on them stating your rate of pay, your experience, etc.  They then choose their contractor.  There are a bunch of different job categories from writing to website creation.  You might want to check it out. 

    There are other sites that are similar, but I found Elance to be the most user friendly.  A lot of people make a good living with Elance. 

    Also - you might want to go to and run a search on "telecommute".  A LOT of companies are realizing the value in having people work from home.  It reduces their overhead and provide greater flexibility for their employees.  It also reduces the amount of days people take off.  So - run a variety of search with different search terms.  Even use "home", "work from home", things like that.   Ignore any that require investments - they are not worth it.  Look for bona fide companies looking for telecommuters.  It is becoming more and more common as the years go on. 

    Also, sometimes companies post jobs and do not list them as a telecommuting opportunity, BUT you can always propose to them that telecommuting would benefit both of you.  I have done that successfully in the past. 

    I would suggest Elance to get started.  When I was working, I was able to make about $30,000 per year working through Elance.  It is legitimate and safe. 

    I am sorry to hear about your bad news.  Hope things are getting better for you.  Hang in there.
