Many legitimate home-based jobs and projects can be found online, but trustworthy guidance is scarce. Worse, with a 56-to-1 scam ratio in work-at-home ads, the terrain is a minefield of fraud.
Nevertheless, customer service agents, researchers, test scorers, tutors, writers, and concierges are just a few of the many people regularly hired to work from home.
A growing number of Fortune 500 companies, including UnitedHealth Group, American Express, and Northrop Grumman, also hire home-based personnel. In this book you’ll learn:
- The top insider tips on good and bad Google search terms.
- How to find the “needles in the haystack” on Craigslist, Indeed, Monster, CareerBuilder, and other big sites.
- Where the real jobs for mystery shoppers, transcriptionists, and similar part-time specialties can be found.
- Scam-spotting tips that even law enforcement doesn’t know.
