Where can I find home-based work?

Many people want to work from home. Home-based work is ideal for many people, particularly women with children, but it suits many other people too. Here, we take a look at how you can find home-based work. We also investigate business from home ideas and jobs which may be particularly suitable for women at home.

Local newspapers

Searching through newspapers If you are looking for home-based work for the first time, the first port of call should be your local paper, as for any other type of job. You may not find any business ideas or jobs suitable for professional women looking to do what they have done in an office. However, you may well find something suitable for working from home moms who don't need to make a full time income. Possibilities include typing, proof reading, and looking after children or pets.

Finding work on the Internet

Search for jobs on the Internet More and more home-based work is being found on the Internet these days. If you do a search, you will find a number of companies offering online jobs, from writing short articles to proofreading to doing online surveys for which you get paid. You can also buy and sell items on the online auction site eBay, and this has provided jobs for many people since it started.

Your own advertisement

Putting up ads One way of finding the sort of home-based work you want to do is to put your own ad in the local paper and/or local supermarkets etc. That way you can say what you want to do. perhaps you can do typing, write CVs, or work on people's websites. Maybe, you could look after children, or offer to walk dogs or feed cats for pet owners. There are indeed many possibilities.

Running a business from home

Starting a home business Setting up your own home-based business is not that difficult. Many local councils and private organisations have home business forums or offer advice to people thinking of setting up their own businesses. Freelance work from home is becoming more common, and there is a lot of advice available. Think carefully about what you could do, and then see if you can turn it into a business idea. If you have never done it before, start small and work your way up, gradually expanding as you become accustomed to the work. And, good luck!
