We have done multiple posts about how to avoid work-at-home scams, but we really haven’t touched on how to find actual home based employment. According to a recent Cincinnati-based report by John Matarese, there are indeed a few companies offering home based call center work. Some of these companies are “Convergys, Arise, Alipine Access, Working Solutions and Speak-Write (home based dictation opportunities).”
The important thing to notice here is that these companies allow online applications free of charge..
Also included in the article is a list of work-at-home opportunity warning signs: “The Better Business Bureau says be suspicious of at-home jobs that charge a fee up front……. Including: Refund Processing, Home Mailing, Envelope Stuffing, Postal or Government jobs for an upfront fee [and] Almost anything you receive in an e-mail or see on a telephone pole.”
