10 Great Work-at-Home Jobs
Sat, 01-12-2013 - 12:52am

Work-at-home jobs promise big benefits: extra income, flexible hours and the enviable dress code of slippers and sweatpants. The trick, of course, is finding legitimate, well-paid positions because work-at-home scams abound.

To assemble our list of top work-at-home jobs, we combed Bureau of Labor Statistics data for occupations with good hourly wages and promising growth prospects. We then identified actual companies that hire home-based workers in these fields, and scrutinized their benefits and schedules.

To weed out scammers, we checked out companies with the Better Business Bureau. Every work-at-home company we mention has an A or A+ rating from the BBB (or, if it's not in the BBB's database, it has been vetted by industry groups). While we can’t guarantee that you’ll get hired for one of these work-at-home jobs, at least you can have confidence that none of these employment opportunities is too good to be true.

Do you know how hard or easy it is to get a job like the ones in the article? How plentiful are these jobs?

Hi Francisonthelake! There are more and more work-at-home jobs than there were years ago when I started, but there's also more competition for them, too. I know people who are medical transcriptionists, customer service reps and tech support reps; they found their jobs in the normal way of applying, being interviewed and in some cases, being tested before they were hired. 

To me, there are two big hurdles to getting an wah job... first, is finding an actual job opportunity and second is selling your ability to be a self motivated worker. So many people think a wah job is a piece of cake... and it can be great, but you really have to be able to avoid distractions and concentrate on the job at hand. Some days it's easy, but some days -- whoa, it is a challenge! Surprised

I can suggest a job sutiable for both-men and women and of course for those who sit at home and have at least a couple of free hours. You can devote as much time to it as you wish. It is an axcellent way to make money on Internet and at the same time you do not depend on anybody. 

It is one of good variants of work from home and this kind of activity has become very famous recently and there are a lot of sites offering such services. One of them is Opteck company that tries to assure good service and satisfaction for its clients.

            All you have to do is to define your abilities and talents and make them the beginning of your success. Define your abilities which you can offer as services and start earning on Internet.

The process is very simple: follow the link and register on this site.

Remember that expectation of success and earning good money depends on service suitable for your abilities and time you choose.

What are Binary Options?

This is the new type of investment. Investor can predict in which direction the option will go when he buys the certain asset. We sign up the contract with him, according to which the client chooses the asset to trade on and buy the option on fixed price in the certain time.

            Binary Options are known as "yes and no" options, digital options or fixed-return options (FRO). Each of these names shows the type of the variants- "yes" or "no" because there are only two choices you make at Binary Options.

Here is an example:

A client invested 25$ on Binary Option. Having known that in the end of the day Apple shares have the higher rate than in the beginning then he will get 17.10$ profit; and if it gets lower rate, he will get a return of 1.50$.

It means when you invest, you can get 17.10$ profit or only 1.50$ from your investment. These sums can be larger depending on the investments you do. In other words, if you invest 1000$ with Opteck, you can get 1,710$ profit or have a return 150$. 

So, wish you luck!

There are so many ways Moms can work at home, from direct sales( like me for 13 years now), to telecommuting, house cleaning, day care, crafting, selling online like e-bay or etsy. I think it's wonderful to have so many choices!
