It is everybody’s dream to own their time for everybody is tied with their 9 to 5 jobs. Most everybody spend eight to twelve hours a day working in their offices, laboring away for the company they work for, only for a meager salary that is barely enough to cover their daily needs. Isn’t this just too true? You work for other people’s company and you make them rich, while you still remain in your little cubicle work station earning and living only for day to day. And you can do nothing but dream of the elusive life of living comfortably without scampering and scurrying all day long, beating deadlines and stressing yourself with work while worrying about your personal problems at home as well. All of your time is consumed with work and household chores. No time is left for yourself, for a little leisure and a little fun and excitement. You ask yourself, “Is that comfortable life I dream is really just that—a dream?”

Fortunately, the answer is no. And the good news is there is something you can do about it. You can work from home by doing Internet jobs and own your time. By working for Internet jobs, you can be our own boss that tells you what to do with your time and when to do it. No manager, bossing you around, yelling at your mistakes and no memo for misbehavior or misconduct. You work from the comfort of your home, where you can lie for a bit when you feel sleepy and tired. A nap is always available for the taking, with no fear of being caught by your boss. You can have as many coffee breaks as you’d like. You can take a break and play with your kids on the yard. That is really the best thing about working from home—you can spend time with your children. You can supervise their studies and their development. You can sit back and relax while watching your kids grow and your family grow together. Read the rest of this entry »

Con artists litter the Internet in hopes of finding individuals who’d fall in their work-at-home traps. Legitimate Internet jobs do exist, but they unfortunately exist amidst a huge number of illegitimate and deceitful job opportunities.

What to Ask to Distinguish Legitimate Internet Jobs

Old school job hunting

Still doing the old school way of job hunting? Walking in and knocking at company’s doorsteps with your resume in an envelope? Braving the traffic and spending the money you barely can afford by commuting everyday to hunt for a job? And what do you get? As expected, you would get a “sorry we have no vacancy” answer from the HR or even from the receptionist at the front desk. If you are lucky, they might get your resume and tell you they would keep it for future reference.
