Question:

Where do I find the best work at home jobs?

Use newspaper articles as a source for hidden job markets

Your most effective tool in finding a great work at home job is to spend your time wisely, seeking out all the hidden job markets and finding jobs that others are missing. One of the best sources of current jobs is right in your local newspaper, and I don't mean the job ads. Look in the articles and business profiles to find the names of company owners, then call them up and explain what you do. Make sure you mention that you read about them in the local paper and you enjoyed what the article said about them. This is a great "door opener"!

How to use search terms effectively

To successfully search for work at home jobs, it is important to check work at home and freelance job boards regularly. Do not forget to use standard job boards and search on words like "telecommute", "freelance", "home office", "offsite", etc. When searching on major search engines like Google and AOL, search on phrases like "freelance job", "freelancers wanted", "contract work", "home office", etc. Online newspapers can also be a wonderful search tool: Use search terms such as "offsite", "freelancer", "homebased", etc. As always, if there are any fees involved with the job - stay away!
