Finding Real Work at Home Jobs

I've been updating the Work at Home Jobs section of my Job Search site and I thought I should spend some time looking for work at home jobs to make sure that finding legitimate opportunities is really as hard as I say it is.

I've written that finding a real work at home job is like finding a needle in a haystack.  It is.  I honestly don't know how someone who doesn't know what they're doing can separate the scams from the jobs.   One thing I learned today though, was that the more specifically you search (and, of course, the more skills you have) the more likely  you are to find decent listings.

Searching for "work at home" doesn't cut it.  If you have experience in insurance case management or IT skills, for example, it's easier to find home or field based jobs.  If you have no experience, you can locate some jobs, but you need to really carefully investigate the companies to make sure that they're worthwhile opportunities and they aren't going to charge you to hire you.  

I've updated my work at home job listings page, with the usual disclaimer that I can't guarantee (unfortunately) the legitimacy of the openings - web sites change, companies change, etc. so it's up to you to make sure that you're not being taken advantage of.
