REAL work from home...does it exist?

Hello. I go to school all day and most days I work after that. I still don't make enough money for my paintball addiction due to having to pay gas, cell phone, car payments, car repairs, insurance, etc. I would like to get a job working from home to make a little more money. I DO NOT WANT THAT CRAP THAT SAYS I WILL MAKE $3,000 A MINUTE BY DOING NOTHING!!! I hate that stuff and it is obviously all crap. I really want to work hard from home and put in hours and probably make minimum wage from home. I want a real job but it is impossible to find with all the b.s. there is online. Can anyone help me find anything if anything does exist?

What skills do you have? I'm sorry but you cannot get a good job without skills.

I'm very good with computers...it's all I do. I had my own web site for a while but I took it down because it was expensive (too much for me). I am good with people I work at a grocery store . There isn't such thing as part time telemarketing from home or anything?

Real work from home?


1. Go to college
2. get a job with a company that through research you have found has many employees that telecommute.
3. Work with the company long enough, work hard, and hopefully get yourself into a position where you too can be a telecommuter.

VanHalen,

Ehhh, knowing flash isn't gonna get you very far. To get a media job like that you have to be very well versed in lots of different applications and formats, and preferably have a degree.

Companies don't want employees with a single strong skill.

Companies want employees with diverse skillsets that are adaptable.

I work from home for a car dealership... my dad works at said car dealership and I had previous experience in reception and bill collecting though..

The opportunity to just start out at a reputable company telecommuting probably doesn't really exist for high school kids, honestly.

Nobody trusts you enough to send you a bunch of **** to just do "in your spare time".

Commercial business is a structured market. **** doesn't just get done "whenever"

If you want a job from home you could be a web designer but you need to build up a portfolio first even if it means giving out a few freebees.
