Do you need to find a job that doesn’t require you to be onsite?
Whether you have health, family, commute, or other concerns that make it difficult to report to a physical work location, you might find a work-from-home position to be a good fit for you.
Virtual or remote jobs are available in many fields—from entry-level customer service to complex software development or research positions. Many require a computer and an Internet connection, but some provide equipment and technical support to workers.
Visit the National Labor Exchange (NLx)’s Virtual Jobs to search for a remote position. All advertised openings on that website have been identified as “virtual” or “remote” positions by the employers.
Fraud alert: Please note that applying for or accepting a virtual job should not cost you money upfront. Do not provide credit card or other payment information to be considered for a job, or to begin “training”, or to otherwise qualify for a job. Here are some other steps you can take to verify a job posting:
- Check Google Maps to see if the company has a “real” address.
- Research the company’s website and social media accounts to determine its validity.
- If you received an email describing the position, check the company’s website to make sure the sending email address is legitimate.
