News Service – Hiring Local News and Data Providers 

Earn money generated by your articles. Write for Examiner.com.

You will research data and provide information, resources and tools related to your area of expertise (this might be your local city or town or any subject of interest to you). For example, a Sports Examiner in Atlanta may enter data about the Atlanta Falcons, including covering updates on draft, trades, the latest game, where to find statistics and video, etc. Even more important, however, would be to add local perspective, such as: What’s the liveliest place in Atlanta to watch the game? Where can you buy tickets? Which hot dog stand in the stadium serves up the best goods?

You will also offer some support to readers and customers by answering emails and replying to posts. So you must enjoy working online and helping others.

This is very easy work and we will offer full training to use our system. You can usually start working and earning money within a few days after you complete our application.

Don’t worry if publishing online is new to you. We provide the training and tools needed to publish and promote data. Our most successful workers also spend time promoting their data to their social and business networks using tools such as Twitter, Digg, Facebook, LinkedIn, StumbleUpon, email lists, message boards and word-of-mouth. If you are unfamiliar with these networking tools, we will provide the resources you need to learn and master online data marketing.

100% free. There is no fee to apply, be hired or work from home for us!

Proven, Secret, Powerful, Money Making Home Business Opportunities (That You Should Avoid!)

You’ve probably heard about those work at home opportunities where you pay to get a business system that’s already been “proven” to be a money maker. Perhaps its “ad placing” or “envelope stuffing” or (our favorite) a “secret system”. Sometimes it is simply a “powerful home business system.” The pitch sounds great. They claim you will make great money after you learn the system, which of course, they can teach you for a fee.

So, are these offers for real? Are people successfully working from home with them?

The short answer to your questions is NO.

The long answer is ABSOLUTELY, NO WAY, NOT EVEN IF PIGS FLY! 

Seriously, the general rule to follow is that if you are asked to pay a fee for a “proven system” that will earn you big money, run and don’t look back. While not all of these opportunities are “scams” (some, in fact, are legit / legal offers), few will offer you a real income from home. Many use misleading and unethical advertising practices to entice you. Others simply LIE about earnings and practices. Many of these offers have been around for years and they tend to target women who are raising families, elderly looking for additional income and the disabled who are in desperate need for income from home. Unfortunately, it is very easy for people who are vulnerable to fall victim to these misleading or exaggerated offers.

The Council of Better Business Bureaus received so many complaints on this topic that it formed a special task force to study the problem. Over a 6 month period, they answered ads for hundreds of work-at-home business opportunities but did not find any that generated the level of income promised. None. Not even ONE program that lived up to the claims.

(Don’t confuse these “proven” home based gimmick offers with legit franchise and multi level sales and direct sales opportunities which do offer SOME decent earnings if you work at it. Think: CAbi, Avon, Pampered Chef, and the like). Some people do well with home based sales programs and others do not.

So, the bottom line – you should just avoid all of these “proven” and “secret” home business opportunities. YOU WILL NOT EARN BIG MONEY FROM HOME. Nor will you get insider “secrets” about some great home business opportunity that will make you rich (or even make you a few bucks). The purpose of these offers is to get your money by making you buy the “secret” or “proven” system – perhaps in the form of videos or CDs or a book for you to read. After you watch the videos and read the books you will be no more prepared or ready to start earning big money from home than you were before you handed over your cash.

Trust us – if there is a legit home business opportunity that will allow you to earn solid money from home then we will tell you about it here at HomeworkersNet.com – We will fill you in on all the details so that you can make an informed decision. We will promise you that we’ve done the research and are confident in recommending the program to you.

To date, we have not found any of these opportunities to be worthwhile. None of them, not even if pigs fly…..

Guide To Making Money Online From Home

In a move to save money and the environment while also creating happier employees, the Federal Government hopes to expand its home based workforce which currently includes only about five percent of federal workers.

President Obama recently signed the TELEWORK ENHANCEMENT ACT OF 2010 into law which requires federal agencies to produce policies and procedures to promote more home based working arrangements within their departments. It also requires each agency to appoint a Telework Managing Officer to supervise the program.

This law requires federal agencies to allow all eligible employees to be given the opportunity to work from home. Generally, “eligible” employees are those with jobs conducive to telework such as office and executive personnel as long as they have the necessary home office tools and equipment. Employees that work in emergency capacities or that require significant onsite presence are not eligible.

To work at home: Free Trial of RingCentral Fax

The report identifies five key steps agencies can take when establishing their telework programs: 

    1. build management support

 

    1. define essentials to demonstrate return-on-investment and overcome resistance

 

    1. train managers and measure productivity

 

    1. supply secure, effective and affordable telework technology

 

    1. enhance continuity of operations plans.

To offer incentives that will encourage telecommuting, the law also enables agencies to cover the travel expenses of telecommuting employees who may need to occasionally drive to work.

The government also hopes to expand the opportunities for federal employees to work from home occasionally when the need arises, such as in times of bad weather. “The need for this is clear,” said U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Director John Barry. “Nobody has forgotten ‘Snowmaggedon,'” he said. ‘Snowmaggedon’, which produced record snowfall totals in the Washington DC area forced many offices to close for as long as a week. Barry said, “Unscheduled telework is a new option for federal employees to telework, to the extent possible, when severe weather conditions or other circumstances disrupt commuting.”

HomeworkersNet is a passionate advocate for expanding the role of telecommuting and home based work in both the federal and civilian workforce. We applaud President Obama for signing the Telework Enhancement Act of 2010 into Law.

Question

I have been a member of other free work at home job services before but never seem to get a job or even good job leads. WhyDoWork.com and WAHM.com just seem to give a bunch of links that never really go anywhere. The information is either old or a link to some MLM program. Plus the people who run those websites never seem to have anything good to say about other free work at home websites. I don’t get it. Can you explain this to me?
~Julie Hersey, Elyria Ohio

Answer

Hi Julie and thanks for your question.

We hear it all the time so you are not alone. A good 75% of Internet job seekers have told us that they have never received a job offer as the result of sites like WhyDoWork because the information posted there is out of date, misleading or incorrect. Many times, these types of free Internet forums are nothing more than an opportunity for the forum owner to promote their own products, MLMs or associations while putting down all others that they consider competition. This is why you’ll often see links to jobs that are really advertisements for work at home business opportunities or fee based offers.

HomeworkersNet.com was created in 1996 so we have years of experience in the field. In all of our work during this time, we have encountered very few job seekers who actually found a job as a result of free work at home job forums such as the ones you mentioned. This is why we set out to make HomeworkersNet.com a different service. Our idea was to provide you with all the tools and resources that would normally require a service fee.HomeworkersNet.com HAND SELECTS jobs for our website. This means that real people look at each and every job that is posted here to decide if it will go live to our more than 500,000 users. In fact, we delete approximately 65% of the jobs posted because we do not feel they are worthy of your time or effort.

HomeworkersNet.com also verifies each listing we choose. This means we call or email the company to talk to them about the work at home jobs they are attempting to fill. Once we decide to list a job, it is reviewed weekly by one of our Researchers to make sure the job is still active, the links are still working and the terms have not changed. Employers appreciate this extra effort too. While many legit employers frown upon their job leads appearing on sites like WhyDoWork, they actually come to us and ask if they can be included. They know that we will take special care in handling their listings honestly. For instance, many unprofessional free work at home job sites attempt to hide the fact that VIPdesk and others require a credit check and minimum credit score to be considered to work from home. Our listings will give you full details so you will know exactly what to exact.

We also provide a free Employer Directory to our registered users so that you can research each potential employer. Our Employer Directory includes tips for landing a job, company history and information, contact details and much more. Other work at home services would charge a fee for access to this information!HomeworkersNet.com provides it to you for free.

Best of all, HomeworkersNet.com gives you free access to real jobs. (Not MLMs and scams such as those that you find on unprofessional work at home discussion forums and groups). HomeworkersNet.com does not charge you a fee to register, apply or be hired. There is no start up fee or certification fee.


Work at Home Now: The No-nonsense Guide to Finding Your Perfect Home-based Job, Avoiding Scams, and Making a Great Living

So, while we do not encourage you to stay away from free forums that you find on the Internet -we do suggest that you use caution with the information that you find there. Most forum site owners are simply a home based hobbyist with little knowledge of the industry and probably zero industry contacts. There are a few exceptions. The other site you mentioned, WAHM, is probably one of the better choices as they have been on the Internet for many years and have built a solid reputation of business standards. Perhaps your problem there is with job seeker competition (too many job seekers per job posting).

The simple fact is – if you want to actually land a job – you will probably find a professional service such asHomeworkersNet.com to be more conducive to your goals and needs.

Have a look at our most recent job postings and see for yourself!

Good luck

QUESTION: Do you know of any way that I can make money from home doing something that is fun and exciting? I can’t stand to sit at a desk all day! 

ANSWER:

Money…. You’ve gotta have it.

But wouldn’t it be great if you could find a job that would allow you to make money and have fun too? It’s not as far-fetched as it may seem. Many HomeWorkers have turned their
favorite hobbies into businesses–and made big bucks doing it. Here are some of their stories.

The Phone, The Phone Is Ringing
Making everyday phone calls may annoy you, but they equal money from home for Andrea Raymond from Salisbury, Maryland. Andrea started Call Backs, Inc, a virtual business that handles just about any phone call that you don’t want to make. “I have some clients who just want me to make one phone call to decline an invitation. I have other clients that hire me to return hundreds of calls from their voice mail.” Andrea has also just added special call services. For a fee she will call someone to delivery a special or fun birthday message or congratulations. “My favorite was a phone call that I made from a boyfriend who wanted to apologize for his bad behavior. His girlfriend wasn’t speaking to him so he hired me to read a scripted message.” Andrea charges anywhere from $10 to $40 per phone call and earns around $600 per week working part time from home.

Pens For Your Thoughts…
Jenny Kirkpatrick’s business started on a whim. “I saw an ad in a craft catalog for kits to make pens,” explains Kirkpatrick, owner of Jen’s Pens in Wood River, Nebraska. On impulse, Kirkpatrick ordered it: “I just tried it for fun and then got really involved.” Her hobby really paid off. Nowadays, Kirkpatrick’s handcrafted pens can be purchased in across her home state of Nebraska.

For The Birds
Shelly Lehan’s hobby-turned-business is for the birds–literally. As the owner of Sweet Tweets, a business that provides information online and sells a variety of small birds, Lehan gets paid for doing what she loves. “I’ve always raised birds such as Cockatiels and Love Birds. So, I put up a website that shares information about how to take care of them. My site also offers links to local sellers and I sell various bird related merchandise,” she explains. Shelly earns about $3,000 each month from home plus a little more in local bird sells. She averages about 25 hours per week from home.

There are many other great success stories….
Marci Lyons makes personalized baby clothes, Shelia Templeman makes gourmet dog treats, and – our personal favorite – Shandra Lewis who works as the “Story Lady.” (She goes to birthday parties, school events, hospitals, day cares, etc and reads stories to kids while dressed in elaborate customs.) She gets $75 for a one hour appearance and made over $50,000 last year…. Another Homeworker, Jean Christenson, goes to girls birthday parties and does hair wraps and braids. She gets $200 per party of eight and told me that she does at least six parties every weekend.
Not bad….

Many people dream of being their own boss. So, businesses that begin as hobbies may be the best opportunities of all. As famous entrepreneur Harvey Mackay once said, “Find something you love to do, and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.”

QUESTION
Why do some jobs require a credit report or a minimum score? Is this legal?
~Debra Vang, Murfreesboro TN

ANSWER

Not only do applicants need a flawless resume and stellar interviewing skills but many now need a great credit score.

If you’ve applied to a job recently then you’ve probably noticed the increasing use of credit checks by employers. In fact, the use of credit reports by hiring managers is widespread and becoming more so. A recent survey by the Society of Human Resources Management found that 60% of employers conduct credit background checks for some or all job candidates.

Your credit score is defined as ”a number, roughly between 300 and 800, that measures an individual’s credit worthiness. The most well-known type of credit score is the FICO® score. This score represents the answer from a mathematical formula that assigns numerical values to various pieces of information in your credit report.” Some employers will consider applicants with credit scores as low as 450 while others are only looking for applicants with “near perfect” scores of 650 or above. (This is especially true of work at home jobs in the financial industry).

Problems with your credit report can cost you the job. This is especially true for work at home job seekers who will be required to maintain not only a home phone line and electricity but the home itself in order to perform work. Employers have been burned by job seekers who are hired to do a job but then cannot perform because they do not pay their telephone bill or Internet access.

Companies typically look back over a period of years for patterns in applicants’ behavior. It’s a longer-term snapshot to see if that’s indicative of fiscal responsibility. This combined with your skills, education, home office tools and references are all used to determine your worthiness to work from home. Whether you agree with this technique or not, it is all the more reason to keep a close eye on your credit.

There are hundreds of work at home employers who now require a credit check. VIPdesk, for instance, requires a minimum FICO score of 500 before you can be considered. According to VIPdesk, this is in full compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act and current labor laws. Employer credit checks are only considered to be discriminatory if they disproportionately exclude minorities, women or people over 40 and are not essential to a hiring decision. VIPdesk is far from the only company that requires a credit check – many County and State government, city jobs, federal jobs and opportunities with top Fortune 500’s now require an acceptable credit score.

Last year as many as five states in the U.S. attempted to challenge employer credit checks but most failed to move forward. While some are still pending, the majority were dropped because employers were able to easily prove that credit checks were useful and necessary to the hiring process especially as they relate to hiring home based staff. Simply put: a company must have some assurance that the home based employee that they hire is going to maintain the tools necessary to work from home. The best way to prove this is by hiring someone who has not made late payments on their phone bill, Internet fees, rent or mortgage and other related services.

It has been well documented by reputable news sources: employers want job candidates with good credit, so be sure that yours is free of errors.

Mystery shopping is a service used by most businesses in the retail, hotel, and restaurant industries to keep their employee performance and integrity at a maximum level in an effort to keep customers coming back again and again. Mystery shopping also measures
the quality of products and services for companies so that the company is able to uncover needed changes and stay competitive.

As a mystery shopping professional, you will provide your valuable services to businesses as you pose as a normal customer in their locations or their competitors’ locations in order to provide the business with detailed surveys and reports on your experiences. For your services, businesses pay a fee plus there are often free products, free, free dinners, and free hotel stays included in order for the mystery shopping assignments to be completed for each business.

You can run your own mystery shopping business or work for organizations as an independent shopper. When shopping for other companies, you are usually paid a reimbursement for a meal or merchandise along with a little extra to cover your expenses. When hotel shopping, you are usually reimbursed for the hotel stay. When retail shopping, you are usually paid a fee (the average is around $50.00) for the assignment.

Use caution! The Internet is teeming with mystery shopping scams and schemes. Many of these scams will charge you a fee for a list of mystery shopping “jobs” that do not pay real money or offer legitimate opportunities.

If you are serious about becoming a mystery shopper and want to earn a substantial income, we would recommend that you start your own shopping business from your home. There are plenty of tools to help you get started since you probably already have the skills and equipment you need!
