How to Find a Real Online Job (and Avoid the Scams!)

It’s not surprising that in this day and age, online jobs are becoming a very popular and desired way of making a living. There are many great opportunities, offered by legitimate and stable companies that are seeking telecommuters to provide a variety of services that were once managed by in-house staff.

If you have been searching for an online job, you are probably aware that there are also many scams out there often burying the legitimate jobs. Online job fraud unfortunately is a very real – and growing – trend. You may even know someone who has been scammed, or who had information stolen while trying to apply for what appeared to be an ad for a work from home job. In order to avoid this, here are some tips to help you find a real work from home job, and avoid the scams.

Take advantage of online community forums and social networks.

This can be an excellent tool when conducting a search for a telecommuting job. You will want to register with several work from home communities and social networking sites and then start reading the informative posts left by others. Don’t get on there expecting someone to find you a job. Remember, it takes time to find a work from home job, just as it does to find any job, so be patient and learn all you can about the different types of work from home jobs available. You may want to sign up for a site like Flexjobs that offers daily updates on the best available online jobs that have already been screened by a team of work from home professionals.

If an online job sounds too good to be true, it is!

When you are searching for work from home jobs, do you sometimes come across ads that offer annual salaries of $50,000 a year for working part time? Whenever you spot an ad like that, there’s a pretty good chance that it’s a fake ad written by a scammer. Or, it’s a too-good-to-be-true business opportunity that involves upfront investment (sometimes substantial), which can also be a scam. Generally, it’s incredibly unlikely any part time job is ever going to pay that much, so use common sense and steer clear of those types of ads.  The pay for online jobs should be fairly similar to what you would earn if the job were a traditional, on-site job.

Are you asked to provide too much personal information?

When you are applying for a job, it is illegal to ask too many questions about your personal information during the application process. If you come across a job posting that asks for your social security number, date of birth, marital status, bank account information or anything else that is personal information – run the other way! These type of illegal questions are big red flags. When applying for an online job, use a general resume that only includes your first and last name, a phone number and email address for them to contact you. Leave your home address off, or use a post office box number instead of a real street address. You wouldn’t want a scammer to visit your house, would you?
 As you begin your journey to finding a real work from home job, always keep in mind that there are thousands of other people just like you applying for these same jobs. You may not get an immediate response from the companies you are applying to simply because it takes time for their recruiters to go through all the inquiries. Be sure to put your best foot forward when applying and then keep looking for other opportunities to increase your chances of finding the perfect work from home job that will meet your needs.

Not all jobs Opportunities are scam.
