Many people see working at home as the Holy Grail of job perks, and thanks to the Internet it's totally possible. Whether you want a full-time job or just want to make a little extra money on the side, the options are there if you know where to look.

I should warn you now that "working from home" and "online jobs" do not translate to "get rich quick." Always be extremely skeptical of jobs that promise a fortune for very little work. They're almost guaranteed to be scams.

Here are some more quick guidelines to avoid scams while looking for jobs online:

  • Always make sure the company is legitimate and has a solid online history.

  • Never pay any money - such as application processing fees - up front.

  • Never give out personal information in your application that a typical company wouldn't ask for.

  • Do your research.

With those caveats in mind, let's look at some jobs.
