For Those Not in the United States, Finding Work at Home Can Be Tough
Ideas and Suggestions for Those Seeking International Work at Home Jobs
International work at home questions are common place for me.
I guarantee you that when I get up tomorrow morning, there will be at least 5-6 emails in my inbox from job seekers located outside the United States. It's true, most of the work at home jobs I find and post – they are USA based. It's not that I'm trying to neglect any group of people out. It's not that I don't care. The simple fact is – that most of the companies I find – are US based. It's that simple. I do find Canadian jobs here and there – and there are some that say “global” or international. I would think any freelance writing job could be done anywhere in the world? So if you're a writer or can write well, I would apply for any job like that. You might just land it.
Although I wish it weren't the case regarding international work at home – I can't change what I see each day when I'm doing work at home job research. There just isn't much in the way of international work at home. Seems most direct sales companies are US based. There are a few that are not – but even so – typically they are not international in every country. It's limited. And a lot of it has to do with language barriers and payment processing. For instance…
Many of the money making programs I suggest like FusionCash, Hits4Pay, You Data – they normally are not international either. From what I gather – it has to do with processing payments. I don't know exactly what it is – but payment seems to be huge obstacle. Even with Paypal – it isn't easy.
So – lets say you're from India. You're desperately seeking a work at home job. You can't seem to find anything. You email me – hoping I have some kind of answer. Most times, I do not. I try to help – I really do.
So that leads me to creating this page. This spot on my site is just for those of you living outside the United States but longing to work at home.
Though I may not have a magical answer – I do want to help. Below are websites that I've found that are international. They seem to be legit.
Many are freelance sites. If you're interested at all in doing freelance work – there is a lot of it out there to be had. I use freelancers all the time to install scripts, do updates and many other tasks that I simple don't have the time to do or don't have the expertise to do. If you build up a good reputation doing freelance work and it's affordable – you can almost bet you're going to get a decent flow of work.
I am always looking for more sites to add to the list below. Anyone that knows of any more sites that I should add to the list let me know. I think everyone should have the option to work at home if they can. I think it helps with the environment too. Less cars on the road, less gas needed. People are less stressed too. That could be a huge reduction in anti-depressants!
