Today your work at home job search begins on Yahoo! You will learn to use key terms and phrases in your search which will provide you more focused results.
Go ahead and type in “work at home” on Yahoo’s search page and gauge the results. My search yielded 1,070,000,000 results. Do you see what you are looking for? I certainly didn’t. Chances are you see web pages that are content focused on work at home with a specified product, service, or opportunity, but no actual work at home jobs, job leads, or companies.
To narrow the search results and focus in on companies that hire, you simply need to expand your search. Go ahead and type in “customer service work at home”. You will see the return is significantly less than our initial search, but more importantly you will actually see content of value; company websites that hire remote customer service agents. Within the first 10 listings I see Alpine Access, West at Home, and NewCorp. Another great find on this search is Ratracerebellion.com. I’m very familiar with this site as it contains a list of work at home companies broken down by industry such as Sales, Customer Service, Transcription, or Human Resources.
Don’t limit your search to the term work at home either. There are several key terms you can use independently or combined which will yield you new and desired results. Terms and phrases that I’ve had success with are telecommute, home office, independent contractor, remote customer service specialist, home agent, remote agent, and home based. You are limited only to by imagination. Happy Job Hunting!
