Everyone wants to work from home. The appeal of sitting at your desk in your pajamas while you bang away at the computer is understandable. And while there are many scams out there pretending to offer serious money for stay at home jobs, there are also plenty of legitimate jobs, too. Here’s what you should look for in any work from home job opportunity.
Before accepting work from any online enterprise, check them out carefully. Make sure they pay their debts. You can do this by searching out the company and looking for complaints of non-payment. Forums are great places to check because in today’s Internet-connected world, word gets around quickly. If there are more than one or two minor complaints, pass on this “opportunity.”
It is always a good idea to understand what you are getting involved in so ask questions. The amount of work you receive daily, weekly or monthly may fluctuate. If you are looking for steady work, this could be a problem. Find out if there are highs and lows in the amount of work you can expect to receive.
Naturally, you want to be paid fairly for the work you do. Again, using the Internet to some research before you accept a position can save you a great deal of heartache. Find out what others are paid for similar types of work. Factor in your own level of experience ad any special talents you bring to the arrangement and use this information to negotiate the best wage you can. No one else will go to bat for you and potential employers expect a certain amount of haggling.
You may find you need support in order to do this type of work. On one hand, working from home brings certain challenges. It can be difficult to work or handle business phone calls if you have little ones around. You may need a sitter. Another option is to arrange your work hours so that you can work when it’s best for you.
You may also need support to actually perform the tasks. Technical support, office supplies and systems may be required for certain types of work. Look for online support groups for the field you are working in. They can often provide tips on better ways to manage time and multi-task.
Even working from home can become as dull and mundane as other jobs if you do not enjoy the work you are doing. In these days, a job is a job seems to be the mentality but being stuck in any job you detest, even one you do from home, can create stress and unhappiness. Choose the type of work that you enjoy or at least that won’t have you pulling your hair out. If you are miserable at your home computer for eight hours a day, it will likely show through in your work and you may not keep the job for very long.
