One of the great things about technology is that it enables you to work wherever you can get an Internet connection. But where do you find legitimate work from home jobs? Here’s a list of 10 sites that will put you on the path to the remote job of your dreams.
The traditional 9-to-5 office has become an abstract concept in today’s age of mobile computing and cloud-based services. Workers can now log on and work from virtually anywhere at any time. In the past, finding legitimate work-from-home jobs wasn’t easy. But today, thanks to the same technology that has made remote work possible, you can find a number of sites that curate legitimate telecommuting positions.
If you’re looking to make the move from corner office to home office, here’s a list of websites that will get you on your way to finding your dream career.

Flex jobs is one of the better-known boards for work-from-home jobs. It also specializes in part-time and freelance work, in addition to remote jobs.

You can access some listings for free, but the bulk of the site is for paid members. Pricing starts at $14.95 for one month, and goes up to $49.95 for a yearly subscription. A paid subscription gives you access to unlimited hand-screened telecommuting, part-time, flextime and freelance job listings.

It also has a money-back guarantee if you aren’t satisfied, and provides links to the company’s BBB-approval and extensive press coverage of the service.
Virtual vocations has listings for remote jobs in almost every industry you can imagine, whether it’s software development, nursing, education, bookkeeping, marketing or paralegal.
