Many legitimate home-based jobs and projects can be found online, but trustworthy guidance is scarce. Worse, with a 56-to-1 “scam ratio” in work-at-home ads, the terrain is a minefield of fraud. Nevertheless, customer service agents, researchers, test scorers, tutors, writers, and concierges are just a few of the many people regularly hired to work from home. A growing number of Fortune 500 companies, including UnitedHealth Group, American Express, and Northrop Grumman, also hire home-based personnel.

In Work at Home Now, you'll learn:

  • The top insider tips on "good" and "bad" Google search terms.
  • How to find the "needles in the haystack" on Craigslist, Indeed, Monster, CareerBuilder, and other big sites.
  • Where the real jobs for mystery shoppers, transcriptionists and similar part-time specialties can be found.
  • Scam-spotting tips that even law enforcement doesn't know.

Including interviews with hiring managers and successful home-based workers, Work at Home Now is the ultimate guide to finding the work-at-home job or project you want most.
