Here are a few tips for looking for work from home: 1. Do Your Research. Search Google or other web browsers for the company you are interested in. Do they come up on the search page? Also search for the company plus the word "scam". Do they come up with hits? If so, they may not be the right company to work for. 2. Check their Email Address. Is the company's name or website in their email address? If a companies name or website is not part of their email address, be suspicious. They may not be a legitimate company or opportunity. 3. Research the market. Is there an audience or need for what this company is hiring for? If the company is offering a product or service that is not wanted, it may not be worth your time and effort to work for that company. 4. No up-front money or sign-up fees. If the company requests money from you before they start, they are probably not a good company to work for. 5. Check the Better Business Bureau website. Have their been any complaints about the company you are interested in? If so, then stay away from them. Good luck with your searches!
