When you search for jobs where you can work from home, don't forget to check a very important source of these jobs - CV Libraries. They have hundreds of work at home jobs listed already, and if you upload your CV, employers looking for home based employees can find you more quickly.

Sometimes you have to take a different approach to finding a job you can do from home and instead of waiting for new jobs to appear, you can be proactive and get your CV online so that employers can find you.  Recruiters and employers often search CV libraries for candidates because it is easy for them quickly scan the information and narrow down a list of candidates that they want.

CV-Library.co.uk is a good example of this and they also offer job listings so you can search for work and have employers find you. Here are a few of the jobs listed on the first page (out of 140) of search results for home based jobs:

  • Retail Sales Assistants and Team Leaders for a home shopping business
  • Account manager for an IT services provider
  • C# Developer for an ecommerce company
  • Home based recruiters for an agency that offer regional licensing opportunities
  • Bid manager for a telecoms provider
  • Business advisors for an ethical UK plc
  • Local estate agent for an online estate agent
  • Travel consultants for a corporate travel company
As you can see, there is a real variety of options available so you are sure to find something that you are qualified for! 
 
The most important thing is to make sure that you have a great CV. So many people undersell themselves, or make their CVs too long and difficult to read. Remember that employers and agencies will be scanning hundreds of CVs so if you want them to pay attention to yours, you have to make sure it is clear, concise and gives the relevant information at a glance.
 
You don't need to tell your whole life story on your CV, it is supposed to be a summary of your work history as they can always ask you for more information if they need it.  CV-Library.co.uk has a great article on how to write a CV and also has templates you can use if you need some inspiration.
 
Go to www.cv-library.co.uk and let employers come to you!

As a general rule I am against paying for sites that claim to offer work at home or telecommute. The vast majority are trying to make money from a membership site that offers little information. They might only have a handful of jobs, or they offer a list of jobs that are embedded from job search aggregators that you could search for free. The most outrageous example I have seen are websites made to look like a news site to give it more credibility. At the end of the day it is money for nothing.
 
Over the last 15 years of looking for work from home jobs, I have only found a handful of websites I would consider paying for. One of them is Flexjobs.
 
Flexjobs provides up to date listings of genuine telecommute jobs or work from home jobs, and employers post jobs on the site because it is an authority for telecommuting jobs.
 
They charge $14.95 a month, or $49.95 a year to access the contact information for all the latest jobs they have listed, as well as special partner offers, customer support and helpful articles.
 
Some people object to the idea of paying for these job listings. Normally I would agree, but with Flexjobs I understand why they do it.
 
Flexjobs is a business. There is a huge amount of information on the website that takes time and dedication to maintain and update. They hire people to search the internet for genuine job offers and screen the companies that offer them. All of this takes time and money, and when you think about it, at $14.95 dollars per month, you are paying 50 cents per day to save yourself hours and hours of time searching for jobs yourself, and researching the companies involved.
 
Of course, if you pay the membership fee, search the first day and then forget about it until the last day before it runs, you have wasted your money.
 
To find a telecommute job, you need to search every single day. You need to apply for all the jobs that you are interested in. You need to keep checking to see if new job offers have been added and apply immediately.  The more jobs you apply for, the more likely it is you will get a job offer.  Flexjobs is making it easier by weeding out all the dodgy work from home offers for you.
 
Most of the jobs are US based but they sometimes have jobs for international applicants. You can browse through the jobs listings before coming a member and will only need to sign up if you find something that you want to apply for.

If you have decided that blogging is your preferred Alternative Income route, then one of the fastest ways to learn is with Yaro Starak who runs www.entrepreneurs-journey.com. He gives you so much information in an easy to follow format, that literally takes you step by step from wondering what the hell you could possibly write about that makes money, to building up a successful blog.

Yaro has been blogging successfully for years and has created a massive amount of information on his blog, which he has put together one page - Step by Step Guide to Make Money Blogging - so you know exactly where to go to find the information  you need.

I like his style. He is what some might call an ´internet guru´ and he is certainly a blogging guru, but he does it in a way that provides lots of value to readers without using the hard sell. Of course he uses marketing tactics and copywriting triggers to get you to enroll in his programs (he is running a business after all),but not before providing you with a ridiculous amount of information for free.

His case studies of students from his programs will certainly be an inspiration and are well worth a read. The different examples show you how people, from all walks of life and blogging about topics in very different markets, can be so successful.

WARNING:  If you decide to read his website, you won´t have any excuse to prevent you from starting your own blog. Everything you need is on this page as he directs you to all the resources you need.  Make the most of it. Usually you get a trickle of information and are left wandering in the online jungle to figure out the rest for yourself.

I bet you think I must be an affiliate of his because I am gushing over this one page. Wrong. This is not an affiliate link and I am not in his mastermind group. I just get excited when I find something so useful and I know it can help you too!
