Does anyone know any genuine online ways of working at home part time, etc?
Yes! You Will Thank me Later
I sent you a link to a work at home job.
I've never found one. Know a couple of people who managed to negotiate with their employer to work from home, other than that - nadda. Only way to do it I would imagine is to start your own business online, from scratch. Forget about all the turn-key money making sites and yadda yadda, only people making money are those selling these BS schemes.
Medical transcription sounded groovy but alas, it's just a big con to get you to pay for courses in said line of work.
I work in customer service from my home office. I love my job, flexible hours, no driving required. I work 20-35 hours per week.
I know several people who work from home via the internet.
Please would you tell me how you go about getting such jobs/ positions.
donnacsmith, can you tell me more about you're work please. I'm interested in a similar position. thank you.
Just like any other job, I had to apply, etc. There are lots of companies that have online customer service. Check out some of the job classifieds like monster.com. I have a friend who works in CS but on the phone.
The company I work for is an online Q&A site and I started as one of their Experts, then moved up to the CS job. In customer service I help people who don't know how to use the site, etc. using an email program to communicate.
I do most of my freelance writing online too - submit articles and photos via the internet; hardly ever use snail mail anymore. You gotta be careful not to become a recluse when you work from home;o)
Yeah, there are only two legit things I have found ebay and being a marketplace seller on amazon....
Start your own online business just like I did. Then you'll know it's all legit.
Agreeing with the above, the best way to acquire a work at home job is to create your own. The way to do that is start your own business or service. Take a look at business you could start up for low start up cost. If you still would like to go the other route and seek a work at home employer. Check out the Wahm.com forums.
I sell sports cards on Ebay and have made over $500 profit on a single card. It's possible when time and research is put in. It's kinda like playing the stock market though with favorable odds when research is done.
I have to agree with most of the responses here. I sell new and used books on Amazon and do quite well at it. I also make money through my blog (I actually dedicate the content of my blog to saving money, finding deals and locating REAL work at home opportunities if you want to check it out) by incorporating affiliate products, Google Adsense, eBay, Amazon and other third party programs I can make money from.
In addition, writing on Hubpages and Squidoo regularly can earn you legitimate money. However, as we all know, it's not easy money and it takes a bit of time to get to a point where you're earning decent money.
You can also buy and sell products either on Amazon or eBay. Arbitrage is the name of the game! I once found a product through SlickDeals, bought a bunch of them and sold them on eBay and Amazon and earned over $1,000 in two weeks. I also have bought "Deal of The Day" items off of websites and then turned around and sold them on the same website or on another website for a profit. Just be creative and you can find legitimate work at home opportunities. Good luck!
I work as a translator and book indexer from home and interact with my clients by email and occasionally telephone. The translation work is done for clients around the world and has proved to be recession-proof. I only index for one client now, but have actually had more work than ever from them over the last couple of years.
I've just published a hub on becoming a book indexer.
WriteAngled, can you tell me more about you're work please. I'm interested in a similar position. thank you.
You can find out about indexing from my hub. If you click on my name, it will take you to my profile page, from where you can find the hub. Technically, we shouldn't post links to our own hubs in the forums, except in Extreme Hub Makeover where we ask for advice about them.
As for translation, I translate medical documents out of several languages into English. I have a biomedical background, not a linguistic one. However, I know these languages sufficiently well to understand material written in them.
If you know any languages, and preferably have some other specialised knowledge as well, you could look into the possibilities of translation. Generally, you should translate into your native language, not the other way round.
When I started, I registered with the proz.com website, where it is possible to bid for jobs. I found people were contacting me all the time with work, so I never went in for bidding. The basic membership is free. I was a free member for several years, and only became a paying member in the end because I felt I owed Proz since it was through them that I found my new career.
I work at home freelance writing, there are several freelance job boards to check out - Elance, Odesk and freelancer. There aren't just writing jobs either, if you're a graphic artist, programmer or web designer there are those kinds of jobs too. Since you have a good range of hubs, you can use them as your portfolio. I post freelance jobs on my blog - the link's on my profile page.
Good topic... jumping in so I can spy on your responses.
People have mentioned VipDesk to me many times. To me, it sounds very abusive, but some insist that it is a very good job. I would suggest scouring the Internet for comments and make up your own mind.

I am scratching my head I have a page on Squidoo that gets some good traffic. In a range of 1000 views per day. At the same time, they pay me peanuts for it. My similar HP page that gets times less traffic brings me times more money! Go figure what they do with my money? So I realized I am giving...

Is there a honest living you can work at home?I see so many job offers to work at home and make $500 a day. Is that really possible or is it a scam? Is there anyone that actually makes a living at home?

Hi pals, i just wanted to share one of my friend's experience. He signed up for work-from-home job (you would never call it a job), and recently he has been making a few inputs(you can call it deposits or throwing money to the air) and he even bought a book from internet on how to make money from...

How do you find a real job that you can work from home?When looking for work, I have found some job offers to be to "work from home". How do I do my research on these companies to see if they are for real or just a scam. I know the obvious one is when they ask you for money...
