I've seen many complaints stating that remote work or "work at home" or Jobcase jobs are a scam. ALL of these jobs are NOT scams. However, you need to be more diligent. You need to do your research. You need to look up these companies. If the company does not have a REAL and LEGIT website that you can go to and look through (it's quite possible that the job is not real). If the company does not have real, working phone numbers that you can call and talk to real people (in a professional environment------not someone's personal cell phone number). Are the e-mails real (companies generally do not give you a personal email account---or yahoo or gmail--- for contact info)? Is this a real company with a legit website, call and email those professional numbers from the website. Is this a company where I can find more information about online. If not, it may not be legit. Trust your instincts when you are online and take some time to really delve into a company before applying especially if it is a company you have never heard of....

Also, many scammers use the name of real companies to lure you in. You can contact these companies directly and ask them if they are hiring or tell them about the post that you saw. Do not use the contact information in the ad, use the contact information you find online for that company. Note individuals who work for that company in HR and call or email them. Become serious about your job search and be careful while online.

One significant effect of the Covid-19 pandemic was the drastic increase in remote working. The lockdowns, quarantines, and self-imposed isolation pushed companies to consider home working, accelerating a workplace experience that had struggled to gain popularity before the pandemic.

However, with the reopening of economies, the question remains: Is working from home a thing of the past? Read on and learn more about the future of remote work.

Have you given careful thought about working from home? Yes, I know, everyone's doing it. The pandemic forced a huge part of the workforce to work from home but have you ever considered doing it or what it might take?

Here are a few helpful hints to help you get started:

  1. You will need a dedicated workspace or area. It can mean simply setting up a work desk or dedicating an extra room as an office.

  2. It would also be helpful to set up scheduled work hours. This can help you manage your time and your day. You can easily fall into the habit of working anytime and all the time. I recommend using a schedule and timers to keep you on track (and also to help you remember to take breaks---it's easy to get caught up in bad habits when working from home).

Please feel free to add any beginner steps for those who want to start working from home in the comments.

This post was inspired from a Jobcase member who was asking about the pros and cons of Remote Work. That blog post was written by @Allyse Boitnott and can be accessed here: https://www.jobcase.com/questions/50004054-d972-4ec9-955f-72d09979d645

In this post, let's delve in to the pros and cons of Remote Work:

Pros:

  1. The ability to literally work from anywhere (for many but not all jobs)
  2. Ability to create a better work/life balance.
  3. No more commute.
  4. Savings on lunch, gas, etc.....
  5. Independence

Cons

  1. Isolation (many people miss working with other people)
  2. The tendency to overwork (not having the disciplined 9-5 work hours)
  3. Can be difficult to stay motivated.
  4. There may be more distractions, working from home.

I think the above points can give you an idea of everything you should consider in doing remote work. There are many things to consider such as your personal temperament as well as your own personal strengths and weaknesses.

My first post on this topic is also available for you to peruse here: https://www.jobcase.com/conversations/d7d80ad5-0803-426d-9e65-123c56cae975

Please feel free to leave your own comments on other pros and cons on remote work. I look forward to reading them.

There are many folks here on Jobcase looking for remote work. There are still many opportunities available. One of the easiest places to look is right here on Jobcase. At the top of the page, you'll see a tab for "Resources," click on that link to be taken to the Resource Center.

Can't see the tab, click here: https://www.jobcase.com/ru/job-readiness-getting-hired-resource-center

There are also plenty of resources on the internet to help you on your journey. There are sites dedicated to remote work. Some are free and others are offered on a subscription basis (the nice things about these sites are that you can usually start on them with a free trial) Here are a few to get you started:

  1. Remote.co (FREE--find all kinds of remote work and learn about online courses)

  2. Remoteok.com (FREE--find a remote job anywhere; notable companies like Amazon, Google, Microsoft and Apple have posted there)

  3. Remoteleaf.com (Free Trial)

Another great resource is word of mouth. If you have friends or family working remotely, ask about jobs at their companies. Oftentimes, we overlook this great resource. Many employers have employed hybrid models (half-remote and half in the office). There is still quite a bit of flexibility in the workforce, especially because of the triple threats of COVID, the flu and RSV.

I'll be adding more posts on this topic, so be on the lookout! Season Greetings and Enjoy! #jobsearch #jobhunt #remotework #wordsofadvice

Hi there, I'm reaching out to get advice on switching to a new career path. I was in a car accident at the beginning of the pandemic, and three surgeries later it's very clear I will not be returning to my previous industry. I was a custom luxury jeweler (business owner etc) - and before that I did event coordination and restaurant/hospitality work. As a passion project I own an online vintage/handsewn clothing store but even that is physically a little hard on me. I'm currently wanting to find something remote, as I need to return to some type of normalcy and all of my previous positions have been working with customers on custom orders/customer service work. I've applied for a good amount of positions (all ranging from travel agent work/other customer satisfaction remote work) but have not gotten any luck with interviews. Wanting some advice if anyone has anything or knows of a good entry level position I might have better luck with. I'm incredibly diligent but would like advice or if anyone is hiring.

First, I have no desire to “age-proof” my resume - I am a healthy & active almost 64 YO with pandemic-inspired natural white hair AND 40 years of experience, climbing that ladder to an exec-level position with a solid salary.

After the small company I helped launch and grow was recently acquired by private equity, I assisted with the transition and “retired.” I have a few months’ consulting agreement. My goals are more time with family, freedom, less pressure. And much less work. I want to work PT, and the job market is so good that I am not likely taking a job from someone who needs it more.

I have no clue where to go from being VP of a small company where I wore 10 “hats” - HR & Benefits, accounting, contract review & negotiation (inactive attorney), high level customer service, pitched in wherever needed, and since the pandemic, worked and managed productively.

My son suggested I prepare 3 resumes - one for each of my experience areas - (1) legal research, writing, and editing. (2) Human Resources, payroll and benefits admin, (3) bookkeeping, accounting, and local, state and federal business compliance.

Thoughts? I want to make enough to postpone drawing social security until full retirement age - about 3 years out. I do not expect or even want the kind of salary I was making.

I think your son is right: Prepare the three resumes & explain that you have not an inkling to retire soon. I think all places risk losing their older workers to retirement & don't want to invest in them. Sadly, ageism exists. But I'm hoping you beat the odds. Good luck!
