Whether you're looking to freelance, put more money toward bills, or enter into an entirely new career field, finding profitable work from home jobs can be a huge benefit. Online jobs provide freedom, flexibility, and income of course.
However, on the surface, it can be confusing to find out how people are actually finding work from home jobs. Trust me, there's no secret club. You just have to do your research and know legitimate resources to start with.
If you desire to work online, you'll need to find your jobs online.
Here are 7 websites to consider.
FlexJobs is a leading job search site for remote opportunities. This site lists thousands of full-time, part-time, freelance, temp, and internship telecommuting positions across a wide variety of fields.
FlexJobs offers a clean, ad-free, and spam-free job search. And while the site also provides free job-related information, to access the full job listings in their current database you do have to be a paid member.
Paid members also receive benefits. Examples include the opportunity to get contacted directly by employers hiring for flexible jobs, the ability to take unlimited expert Skills Tests (each typically valued at $14.99), access to Special Partner Offers, and more. FlexJobs does offer a satisfaction guarantee. So if you aren't happy with their service for any reason, you have the right to cancel and request a refund.
Jobspresso is a remote job search site that lists opportunities in a variety of fields including web design, support, IT, writing, marketing, editing, etc.
You can browse jobs for free and post your resume so employers can contact you. Only employers wishing to list a job need to pay for this service.
RemoteOK sources job leads from sites like Stack OverFlow and Indeed.
A lot of the jobs are geared toward “digital nomads” which are people who wish to work remotely and travel often. What's great about this site is that jobs are broken up not only by field, by the date the listing was posted as well as high-paying jobs that offer six-figure salaries for example.
Job seekers can sign up to receive daily, weekly, or monthly alerts for remote work positions.
Remotive is another work from home job search site that posts opportunities in fields like marketing, sales, human resources, engineering and support.
You can view and apply to a job listing for free. But there is also a community option. You'll need to pay a one-time fee of $49 to pay for that.
Dream Home Based Work
Of course, this site is one of the biggest sources for finding legitimate online jobs. There are hundreds of articles filled with tips and additional resources that will help you start working from home, e-books and helpful guides along with daily updates to our job search directory.

Indeed isn't really a remote job board site but it's still one of the top job sites in the U.S. Since the site is so well known, plenty of companies looking to hire for online jobs create listing on the site.
All you need to do is use the search function to type in the type of work you're interested in. Be sure to use terms like “remote”, “home-based”, or “online” when conducting your search.
