Can you find genuine jobs working from home?

Unfortunately, the internet and cheap advertising methods have made it easier for scam artists to find victims. And that can make it difficult to find genuine jobs working from home. However, it is still possible to find good work from home opportunities that will pay fairly and allow you to work from the comfort and convenience of your own home.

Here are some tips to help you find genuine home working opportunities...

  • Never pay a fee upfront, no matter how good the job opportunity may seem. This may be disguised as money for training materials, start up costs, a deposit, or in a number of other ways. The amount may vary from around £50 to over £500, but often the scammers ask for a relatively low amount so as to avoid raising alarm bells and suspicion. Few, if any, genuine employers will ask for a fee before you start work.
  • Always conduct thorough research on a company before you pass on personal details (including your CV). Visit their website to gauge their level of professionalism - but remember that anyone can build a flashy website these days. It's important to also check sources like freelance forums, work from home discussion sites and company review pages.
  • Don't be afraid to ask questions before you accept the position. If they are a genuine company they won't mind answering any queries that you may have. If they seem reluctant to answer, it could be a sign that they have something to hide. It may be time to look elsewhere to find a genuine work from home job.
