I'm really exasperated. I work fulltime but i've recently been intrigued by online jobs. I've spent 3 weeks trying to research these home jobs on the internet but i've ended up going around in circles. Either all of them sound like scams or they require some kind of registration fee. I don't mind the fee but i'm a bit apprehensive about being scammed. Does anyone know of any genuine and legitimate internet jobs to do?

If you have a talent for writing, I would recommend Constant Content. They accept submissions of articles on any subject you care to write about and offer them for sale to customers who need content for their own blogs, newsletters, and websites. They also have a list of requested content, and writing those articles will get you some quick sales. It costs nothing to join and you get to set your own prices for your articles. You do have to pay a 35% commission on sales, but also get a % of the sales of anyone you refer. I have been submitting to them for over a year and have done very well. It pays a lot better for your time than many of the other writing-for-pay sites. If you're interested, I would appreciate it if you would use my referral link: http://www.constant-content.com/?aref=8083.

Hi dig_it If you wish to do online work and earn a paycheck vs commission, I would check out sohojobs.org. They are a job poster for companies who hire people to work from home. It is a great resource for people who wish to earn extra income or find a career working from home. Hope this helps :o) Teri K

Hi Terese. Do these sites that you have posted above charge a fee? I'm definately interested in finding a work at home job online as well. Have you had any luck with these sites? Do you work a regular job or do you mainly do these online jobs? I am interested to know your experiences. Thanks a lot.

HI wahm805 You can become a member of SoHoJobs.org for FREE and receive their free newsletter and some job listings or you can become a member for 6 months and pay a one time fee of $24.95 Members have access to all the job listings first. The job listings are from companies who are looking to hire people to work from home. Kindo of like "outsourcing". I work for two different companies now and work very part time around my schedule; I own a women's fitness center also :o) I hope this helps. I would sign up for the FREE newsletter and job listing and see what you think. SoHoJobs has really served me well for over a year now!! Teri "Earning income from home thanks to sohojobs.org"

My husband has a master's degree in computers and he was working for a company and when we moved, he made a deal with his boss to work from home. After we moved, so he was still considered an employee with benefits, even though he worked at home. When his company was laying off people, he was one of them. So he looked for other work at home jobs. He found clients off of craigslist, elance, and guru (he had to pay for memberships for both sites (to access the projects), except for craigslist). His network of clients grew and he has lots of work and clients refer him to other clients because they love his work. He works successfully from home in his pajamas. The downside is that he is an independent contractor and not an employee. So he doesn't receive any medical/dental benefits and he has to do his own taxes. Working from home full time is not for everyone. It also becomes lonely because you don't have face to face adult interaction much, except on the phone. My best friend sometimes works at home because she also needs to rest. She is a loan officer, so it is a stressful job. She makes a deal with her boss to take her work home. So I suggest asking your boss if you could work at home and do your work there. You will have to provide for your own equipment though. Otherwise, get a part time job outside the home to supplement your income.
