A telecommute job can come from many different sources. Perhaps you already have a full time job that is holding you down from your dreams of telecommuting. You may actually be able to telecommute with your current job, depending on what you do. If not, there are several huge telecommuting communities online that will help you grow your telecommuting career.
One of the first is Vworker, it's one of the biggest and best for telecommuter work online. Guaranteed payments and arbitration, for employers and bidders, prove that it is not some scam site. They also have a huge base of virtual workers, as well as boasting a 2:1 ratio of workers to employers. Does that sound like a good opportunity for a telecommute job or what?
Another one is Elance, they came into the telecommuting picture around 1998. Their whole purpose is to empower work through telecommuting, because it's safer, more efficient, and saves everyone money. Whatever you want to do when you telecommute, there are plenty of options available at Elance. Try out your writing skills, translation, multimedia production, IT, and one of many other dozens of service categories.
Those are two of the most reliable sources of a telecommute job for people these days. A few more would be oDesk, Guru, LimeExchange, GetaFreelancer, and many more. The key to securing work from home is to build your portfolio and reputation, just like working on eBay and almost any website. The more positive reviews and work that you can display, the more work you'll get.
