They are really hard to find. I've been looking. GMA had some segments on women going back into the workforce and had links to some legit companies but their requirements are high. Most are looking for at least 3-5 years experience to start. How are you supposed to get that much time if someone doesn't let you start new???:confused3

Check Monster.com (search -work from home and/or telecommute). If you have sales experience there are quite a few jobs for that. My advice would be to network yourself to your family and friends. It sounds like your pestering them but you might just be surprised. That is how I got one job a few years back (didn't last, but helped at the time). Don't go for anything where you have to pay any fees - they're all scams.

Another tip is to create a separate e-mail for your job search. Not gender specific or kitchy - go for something like jbsmith@gmail.com. That way you look more professional and won't get spam'd in your daily/regular e-mail and can ditch it after you are happy with whatever job you might get.

Good luck!:hippie:

If you hold at least a Masters degree, you could see if your local community college needed online instructors. The pay won't be great, but you certainly could work from home. It would help, of course, if you had any experience with taking or teaching online or were willing to take a class on teaching online.

OUr local JR. community college is a BA degree to teach.
The sad thing is that it is political to get a job there.
The university/Private college is a Masters degree.
