The Best Job Search Sites To Find Work-From-Home Jobs

best job search sites to find work from home jobs

The start of a new year is a great time to double check our resources. Websites come and go so we want to make sure our resources are up to date. This is especially important for job search sites because we want to make sure the jobs we find there are legitimate ones and not some get-rich-quick scheme or online scam.

I remember while I was searching for work-from-home jobs I came across some sites that had nothing but affiliate links plastered all over the place. You know the ones I’m talking about…when you click on a link you enter your zip code to see if there are opportunities in your area when low and behold there is some online scam. Frustrating right?

Today I’d like to share the best job search sites to find work-from-home jobs in the U.S. and Canada so you don’t have to run into those so-called search sites. Plus, I’ll share the keywords you should enter to get the best return out of your search and some warning signs to watch out for before you start a search on any job search site.

So let’s get on with it, shall we?

Watch Out For These Signs

We also have to look out for those sites who claim to have legitimate jobs but they’re really out to scam you. These signs include:

  1. Charging you for signing up to their site in order to receive their job leads.
  2. Sites that do not reveal any company information.
  3. Companies with websites that do not provide any contact information.

Don’t Forget The Keywords

Remember the keywords you use will also play a part in the type of results you get back from your search. Here are some popular phrases to keep in mind:

  • Freelance
  • Home-based
  • Independent Contractor
  • Remote
  • Consultant
  • Telecommute
  • Virtual
  • Work-at-home
  • Work-from-home

Be sure to keep the hyphens when you type “work-from-home” or “work-at-home” and in home-based.

      Hi Corina,

      Love the tips! Do your homework. Scan reviews. Speak to mentors who share their expertise in these areas. Some jobs are nothing more than scams designed to part you from your money.

      Do your research and prosper.

      Thanks for sharing!

        Hey there Ryan!

        Yes, we have to look to our mentors for guidance, that is so important.

        My first work-from-home job turned out to be a scam which is what motivated me to share my research. Those spammers get you when your vulnerable and in haste we jump into anything that gives us a shot at making money. We just need to stay a step ahead of them and support each other by sharing our info.

        Thanks for sharing your thoughts! Happy Wednesday!

      It's great to see there are so many good, reputable websites promoting remote jobs. I know there are still plenty of scams out there but for awhile, it seemed like that was all their was! With people more savvy, hopefully it's much harder for scammers. Plus, these days people automatically look for reviews which probably helps people from falling for scams.
