Work-at-Home Opportunities (updated 2/2011)

On her  show last week, radio talk show host Kim Komando spoke with an Iraq veteran who was looking for work-at-home opportunities. She posted an updated list of opportunities her staff had researched on her "Picks of the Week" page, and I've linked to that article here. This is a great resource to share with your clients -- or to use yourself, if you're looking for additional income.

Several of the firms mentioned for work-at-home customer service jobs were the same ones I identified in a September 2010 blog post on the topic. One of the most consistent hirers is West (headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, my hometown.)

(If you are looking for additional income, consider subcontracting as a resume writer. There are many resume writers who work for other firms -- in addition to their own resume writing practice, or instead of it! by contracting as a resume writer.)

Legitimate Work-at-Home Opportunities to Recommend to Clients

In researching this issue for a client, I came across some *legitimate* work-at-home opportunities for folks. (Updated 8/17/16)

These include:
Alorica (formerly West)
SYKES (formerly Alpine Access)
Enterprise Rent-a-Car 

As with any other job opportunity, remind your clients to investigate the position thoroughly ...

There is also a discussion board for West folks on the Work-at-Home forum.

The blog on Work at Home Moms has a state-by-state listing. Here's Nebraska's.

Xerox has made a serious commitment to allowing about 10% of its workforce to work from home. Check out available positions here.

Also check out Amazon's work-from-home jobs. Some of them are seasonal.

Also, if you are a resume writer who is looking for work at home (subcontract) opportunities, purchase my "Making Money as a Resume Subcontractor" Special Report. It lists several dozen subcontracting opportunities, including qualifications, type of work performed/specialties, turnaround times -- and, for many contracting firms, pay.

Telework/Work-at-Home Opportunities

Following up on my previous post on Homeshoring, telework and work-at-home (legitimate ones!) are a growing area of interest for many clients.

Read this article from HotJobs for more information.
