It used to be that work from home jobs were mainly scams.  But today as technology gives us the freedom to work from anywhere, many companies are responding with opportunities to work remotely.

These companies understand that integrating a workforce where they don’t have to provide expensive real estate to house them is a smart business strategy. And that’s good news for you.

If you are tired of commuting to work, or live in a rural area where job opportunities are few, then this might just be the answer you are looking for.

One thing to note, most virtual jobs require you to have the following equipment:

* Landline Phone     * Headset      * Computer      * High-Speed internet access
