Where is best to look for jobs working from home?

Wondering where to look for jobs working from home? Finding genuine work from home vacancies can be a challenge. There are numerous horror stories about scams and pyramid schemes disguised as internet jobs. But if you know where to look for vacancies, you'll be able to find real online jobs.

Word of mouth is often the best source of information. If you have any friends, relatives or acquaintances that work from home, ask them about their position and get them to notify you if any vacancies arise within the company.

Even if you don't know anyone personally who works from home, you can still read real life reviews of companies and job on internet forums. There are multiple websites dedicated to work from home jobs - and they will help you to separate the scams and low paying jobs from the good opportunities and reputable companies.

Major job search sites, like Monster (monster.co.uk) and Total Jobs (totaljobs.co.uk) often have 'Work from Home' job categories that allow you to browse through current vacancies. Because these are such popular websites, competition can be stiff. In addition, many work from home jobs are with small companies who can't afford to pay the high insertion fees for what would be a casual role.

Therefore it's a good idea to keep an eye on sites like Gumtree, where small work from home employers can post their vacancies for free. Just remember that when using these free sites, you may come across some scams. Exercise caution and don't give out any personal details.
