While performing research to include on my blog, I started thinking about my audience. I receive a lot of traffic from the UK. I appreciate your support and decided to show you. I found resources that are specific to the UK. So it would stand to reason that if you do not reside in that region, these job postings may not be for you.
I came to realize that many job boards are not specific to any region and are often worldwide resources. And there is information that is specific to certain regions of the world. Make use of the resources especially if you’ve never held a work at home position: a few sites give tips and best methods to get things done or to find employment.
Please feel free to message me or leave a comment if you’ve had experience with any of the companies listed. If you have never worked from home before there are usually requirements with regard to the equipment you’ll need, and this usually will vary depending on the type of position you choose. The positions available will most likely require;
- An up-to-date resume
- Relevant employment experience
- Time management skills
- Word/Excel/PowerPoint experience
- Customer service
- Organizational skills
- Research/Troubleshooting ability
- Technical skill
- Data entry/Email client experience
- Good communication skills
There will be positions that require more than basic skill, these jobs will require advanced skill sets to qualify for positions. Usually when a company says “advanced” skills required, often workers may need many years in a specialty or degrees/recognition in certain fields to qualify as an applicant.
On the job boards there is the option of searching for different fields of employment other than the one I chose. Feel free to search your area of interest so that you can find your desired position. I try to post positions that are virtual or remote, but most job boards are for local searches also. If you desire a remote position in your field make sure you choose remote/contract for your chosen field.
