Many companies use Craigslist as an alternative free source of recruiting talent. The traditional job search does not apply to work at home. For example most applicants will immediately browse the classified section seeking work in a particular field; this will yield the applicant few results. Finding work at home requires creative thinking; finding work at home on Craigslist is as easy as knowing how to maneuver the site.
The easiest way and most common way to find work at home positions in your area or any area is to use the Craigslist search feature. You will need to type in a key word or key phrase. These words/phrases often yield the highest results; telecommute, work at home, home office, and independent contractor. Once you’ve entered your key word/phrase select the “jobs” category from the drop down menu and hit search. This will provide your desired search results. Remember that you can advance your search by choosing different cities and states from the location men located on the right hand side of the screen.
Another way to find work at home on craigslist is to view the “Gigs” area. This section is dedicated to individuals seeking help of various sorts. The content is broken down into the following categories; crew, event, labor, talent, computer, creative, domestic, and writing. This area in particular is not limited to sales based or customer service type jobs. Anything from modeling to programming may be found here.
If your search is not yielding you desired results then as a final effort you may post an ad for services to be rendered. Create a small ad – and post your ad under the services section of Craigslist. Keep in mind that you will need to create a Craigslist account to post or reply to ads using this service. For safety, you may choose to have readers respond to a personal URL created by Craigslist – this response will be forwarded to your desired email.
