Good work from home job leads are really not that hard to find if you know where to look and, in the case of Craigslist, what to look for. There are lots of bloggers and webmasters, including myself, who spend at least an hour a day or more hunting up good work at home leads and then posting them to share with people who need home-based employment.
Today’s post is a list of where to find the best work from home leads on the web. Some of these you may already be visiting regularly, but hopefully you’ll find a few new places to go as well. I know I forgot a few, so if you have your own site where you share leads or you know somewhere else that’s good, please share in the comments.
My Job Leads Page
I have a job leads board built into this website that I update about three times per week, and I leave leads on there for about 30 days before I delete them. If you are concerned you’ll forget to check when you see this page is updated, you can always become a job lead alert subscriber here, and you’ll get an email with the new listings shortly after they are posted along with another weekly email listing the blog posts for that week, AND a free copy of my e-book, “Your Guide to Taking Paid Surveys For Extra Cash.”
This site isn’t free to access, but the $14.95 per month you pay is a very good value when you consider the quality of the leads they share. FlexJobs has a lot of happy customers and are often recognized by larger media and news outlets as the “go-to” resource for home-based jobs. They hand-pick all their leads and carefully screen each one so you can be sure they are scam-free. I have signed up for their service in the past to check it out and was impressed with the home-based job listings I found. FlexJobs also has some employers who share their leads exclusively through the FlexJobs site, although many of the leads you could find posted elsewhere if you took the time to look.
If you’re a freelance writer, you’ll greatly benefit from the writing listings at Contena. I have no idea how their team finds so many good, well-paying leads, but they do. It’s not a free job board, but they do often have discounts available. You can go here to check it out, or here to read our write-up on their site. Use coupon code “ways2earn” at checkout to get 10% off your membership.
Work at Home Mom Revolution
Lisa at Work at Home Mom Revolution keeps her site updated with great new work at home job leads. She adds things almost every day and takes it farther than just listing the lead. She also provides a ton of helpful information about each job posting including how much they pay, where you have to be located if location is a factor, and the skills and experience required to land each job. In addition to Lisa’s near-daily detailed job postings, she also has a job board she updates about three times per week with other leads she finds.
Work at Home Adventures Job Board
Miranda at Work at Home Adventures has a regularly updated job board built into her website that gets updated at least a few times a week. I trust her leads a lot because I know she and I use a lot of the same criteria for determining if something is legit or a scam/waste of time.
Rat Race Rebellion
Rat Race Rebellion posts new work at home job leads six days a week. Their leads are carefully screened before being posted and there are usually at least 10 or more jobs posted every day. They also have a newsletter that you can subscribe to with even more leads.
1099 Mom does a weekly “Picks & Promos” post with lots of great new work at home job listings. I also recommend exploring the rest of her site, particularly her “I Want to Be …” posts that highlight specific home-based professions, straight from people who are already involved.
Work at Home Woman
This is an excellent blog with a great list of work from home jobs here.
The Work at Home Wife
Angie at The Work at Home Wife shares job leads weekly on her blog here. She also has some good extra cash recommendations and takes time to include how much she has earned from each program.
Workers on Board
This is a big site with lots of good work at home information. For regularly updated work at home listings, be sure to browse the “Weekly Jobs” section. I’ve found a lot of interesting little gems in there that aren’t posted elsewhere.
Other Places I Recommend Checking:
- ProBlogger Job Board – This is one of the best places to keep up with for good writing leads.
- Freelance Writing Gigs – Another good one if you’re looking for writing leads.
- Adhuntr – I love this site because it searches all of Craigslist. Use (in quotations) “telecommuting” or “work from home” as your search terms to find the home-based leads. There are lots of scammy things posted on Craigslist, so be careful. I tend to stick with listings that have a company name mentioned and are very specific in what they’re looking for. Steer clear of vague, too good to be true listings with no company name mentioned. I also consider it a red flag if the listing has a lot of poor spelling & grammar.
- Indeed – I find all kinds of awesome things listed at Indeed. It’s usually my first go-to when I begin searching for home jobs. Please note that that just like Craigslist, these jobs are not all screened so do your due diligence.
- Work Place Like Home (forum) – They have a special sub-forum for new job leads. I’m always finding awesome things there thanks to the helpful members who take the time to research and share their findings.
- WAHM (forum) – The Telecommuting Moms forum usually has a few good leads listed. The site also has a job board, too.
Tips for Researching
I continue to stress how important it is to do your own research, but that may be easier said than done if you’ve never actually researched work at home before. The articles listed below should help. You can apply the rules listed to researching any work at home job regardless of where you find it.
