How do I avoid work at home scams?
There are many scams when it comes to the advertising of work at home opportunities. Even in this pandemic period, a lot of people have been exploited with scams engineered to destroy people’s plans. A crisis calls for not panicking, but it also calls for extra caution.
That’s why, before applying for any job, you should research the company on Glassdoor, a site that allows former employees to leave reviews of the employer. Lookout to see what they offer, if they sell a product or offer some services, scrutinize them bluntly, and also search for online reviews.
You’ll find details such as average pay, growth opportunities, benefits, and more.
A good rule of thumb is that if the company you’re looking to work for isn’t on Glassdoor, it’s not worth applying.
If you’re searching for independent contractor jobs on Fiverr or Upwork, make sure to view the company profile before applying. On Upwork, you can even see how much the company has spent on freelancers, where it’s located, the average hourly rate they pay, and reviews from previous freelancers.
What are the qualifications to get an online work-from-home job?
As with any job, the necessary qualifications depend on the type of work you’re seeking. In general, if you need a certification to do the work in person, you’ll also need one to do it online.
However, some jobs — such as freelancing writing and editing jobs — can be easier to get online if you have limited work experience. For example, while few newspapers will hire a journalist who has zero training, it’s fairly easy to gain a foothold as a content writer for a blog or website.
Which of these are you applying for?
Do you have some plans to start off?
