Work From Home Job...
Chances are you don't.
Do you know what you're looking for?
When looking on the Internet for a work from home job or a home based business opportunity, the lines are really blurred. I say that because these days you have a lot of people advertising business opportunities as jobs. It's not entirely their fault, because they probably don't know the difference themselves!
Work From Home Job = Being an Employee
A job, meaning you work with a company that is allowing you the flexibility to work from home. Another term for this is Telecommunting. From now on when I am referring to this type of job I will use that word.
When telecommuting you have a boss and will most likely attend teleconferences or meetings to update your boss on the progress of what you are working on. Just like a business opportunity you will neev to have a computer with Internet access and a phone, however any special job related software will most likely be supplied by your employer with NO charge to you.
Since you are an employee, you will receive a W-2 at the end of the year so you can file your taxes. Common confusion between work from home jobs and a business opportunity is the investment. If you want a job there is ABSOLUTELY NO investment. If anyone ever requires you to pay for a job, turn around and run the other way because it's a scam.
You should apply for a telecommuting job the same way you would apply for any other job. That means a resume and a interview will get you that job, not money.
Salary or Houly Pay
Telecommuting means you are guaranteed a paycheck. You will either be paid by salary or have to log your hours worked and get paid hourly. So there won't be a period in time when you are wondering when your hard work is finally going to pay off.
