I have been researching work at home opportunities, particularly for moms, and have put together a resource list for you. Many of you have messaged me on Facebook asking about work at home jobs for stay at home moms. I know supplemental income in a one-income house can be essential-and beneficial. Not sure if you have qualifications to apply for a job that allows you to work at home?
Work at Home Job Resources
Here is a list of ten work at home job resources for moms according to Bankrate.com:
Remember, just because you may have a degree or experience in “XYZ” that does not mean you have to only work in that field. I may have a degree in Early Childhood Education, but this blog (writing) and sharing about essential oils has opened up many options for work at home possibilities that I never even tried to find.
I did take a few writing courses in college, so think back to classes that you enjoyed and try looking up those fields in the work at home searches. Not all backgrounds will translate into work at home options, but if you have a computer and a phone, you can do many of the ones that are not degree-specific. It is worth a look! You can also join me if supporting a healthy lifestyle with essential oils is important to you.
Work at Home Job Search Sites:
-I signed up with my email to receive the daily alerts of new job opportunities. You can narrow the search to work at home/telecommuting options.
-Search available jobs based on your zipcode. There are two options that “auto-fill” for work at home entries-“data entry” and “customer service”.
-They also have the option to sign up with email and receive notifications of new and relevant jobs based on your search.
-Worth a check, but I did not really see many listings-could just be my area, though.
-This website is completely dedicated to flexible job opportunities such as work at home and telecommuting work. It looks like THE site to search for flexible at home work opportunities. (It was also recommended by some fellow military spouses who had found work via this site.)
-Here is the list of telecommuting jobs that I found when searching recently. There are full time and part time listings and over 26 pages of jobs! The newest additions are listed first.
-You can browse by category to narrow your search, but it does cost money to apply. They charge less than $15 for a month and up to just under $50 for a whole year. It really is a small fee considering how much time you get to search. If I were actively looking for part time work, I would start here.
Neuvoo is a free job search engine that indexes jobs directly for free from companies’ career websites, placement agencies and job boards. They centralize all jobs available on the web to help people find new career opportunities, so they could be referred to as the Google for jobs. Their website includes a free “take-home” pay calculator as well.
You can start your search by entering the skills you have, or the specific keywords for jobs you want. This is a huge database for international jobs! No matter where you live, this is a great site to look through.
-This site lists possible work at home jobs. It is not guaranteed that there are openings, but these are companies who have listed work at home opportunities.
-Another great part of this site is that they have done some research to narrow down which opportunities are fake and which are legitimate.
