Here are a list of job boards that include work from home and freelance opportunities. As with any posting or advertisement, you must be diligent about doing your homework and using lots of common sense. Just because something is listed on an honorable website or in a reputable publication, doesn’t mean the opportunity has been vetted for legitimacy. Before you respond to any advertisements you should read our advice for avoiding scams.

The big job boards like HotJobs.com, CareerBuilder.com and Monster.com are filled with thousands of work-from-home opportunities. Simply Hired and Indeed grab positions from a wide variety of sources. The key is to search all of these Web sites by using the words “virtual” or “home-based” when looking for opportunities advertised online.

The Ladders, which focuses on positions paying in more than $100,000 annually and requires a monthly fee to join, features a wide range of senior-level positions from home in sales, technology, finance and marketing.

Websites sites such as
Upwork
Sologig
Guru
Craigslist
Career Builder
Monster
Idealist
Media Bistro

have thousands of part-time and consulting opportunities to research. Some of them allow you to post a free profile about yourself and your skills and services.

If you’re bidding on freelance projects, be sure to research going rates before indicating what you’re willing to work for. This is especially important for work outside of your geographic area. If you live in Ohio, the going rates for graphic design might be much less there than in New York. While the client is looking for a good deal, you don’t want to underprice—or overprice—your services or you’re likely to be knocked out of the running.

Before you respond to any advertisements you should read our advice for avoiding scams. As with any posting or advertisement, you must be diligent about doing your homework and using lots of common sense. Just because something is listed on an honorable website or in a reputable publication, doesn’t mean the opportunity has been vetted for legitimacy. That means talking to a live person and not just relying on an email exchange to learn in-depth about the requirements, challenges and potential earning power. Don’t be fooled by postings that promise big bucks for minimal effort. If it were that easy, we’d all be working in those jobs!
