Legit Remote Job Opportunities

Anyone know of any legit work-from-home opportunities that are in Chicago, IL and/or that are outside of Chicago but the employer(s) is okay with me living in the city? I am only interested in opportunities that are for highly skilled and educated candidates that offer a decent salary and/or hourly wage. Thanks!

Hi Santucee, some of the companies registered for the fair may be looking for stay at home workers.

Federal Government Jobs

Anyone here ever applied for or worked a federal job? I just received a tentative job offer for a position which I’m excited about. How long the process takes after the job offer is accepted? Can you negotiate the pay rate?

Hi Angela East - pay negotiations usually happen either during the interview process, or right after you receive the job offer…

No raise in 7 years

Hi all,
Work for manufacturing industry. Times are tough and company was barely a float for 7 years. Now a new company has bought us out and I am transitioning at my same pay. Should I ask for more money? They have reviews every jan/Feb. Is it better to wait and show my self worth til than?

Toxicity at its finest

I left a good job for one I thought was better. I answered an ad with an opportunity making 55k a year I was hired immediately by the company under the impression it was 55k it was not 38500k below my co workers who were entry level. This company had no policies or internal controls in place I suggested some ideas that would've made the internal controls in place and such. The CEO offered to bring my pay from 38500 to 45k then it would increase…

What should I say?

So I was offered a position within a company I'd love to work for and then was asked what kind of salary am I expecting. What should I tell the lady when I call her back? I don't want to undercut myself but I don't want to turn the company off either.

If you know what they're paying then you should probably try and line up your offer with that as best as possible.

Would you leave or stay?

Question: If you were offered better pay and benefits at another job, would you leave a job you just started?

Go to your supervisor and be honest. Tell them the situation and if they are any good at managing people they will give you advice…

Took a pay-cut and finally a job offer!!


After a month of applications the last 2 weeks have been wonderful. I’ve had several interviews, 3 more scheduled and so far 1 job offer. I have feeling I may be offered 1 or 2 more.

I’ve had to be submitted to jobs paying $12,000-$16,000/yr less than what I’ve made in the past. That’s $6-$8/hr less! I guess that’s to be expected after being unemployed for over a year.

What are your thoughts on taking a pay cut…

Sometimes you do what you have to do. As long as you can still pay your bills, take the job.

Decisions decisions

I make good money and don’t hate my job. But I have been offered a fascinating position with a start up. It’s a huge pay cut, like 50% of my current salary cut. They say I should be making what I make now within 18 months plus the stock options are great. Do I stay where I am or take a huge leap of faith? It will be hard to take the pay cut, but we can survive.

If your willing to take a pay cut create your own LLC free and work for yourself.

The Definition of Anticipation

As stated in a previous post during my job search ironically I had landed interviews with the top two highest paying jobs on the same day which in turn left me with quite a decision to make knowing one certainly wasn’t going to wait for the other. I ended up going with the higher paying of the two and I’ll tell you now I’ve jumped through so many hoops during this application process I may as well had turned into a basketball. Despite all that…

You got in because of the recommendation. It's not what you know it's who you know.
