When it comes to finding an online job there are many options. The problem is that for every legit job, there seems to be ten scams.
One piece of advice I always give is to check the Better Business Bureau website as part of your research on a potential work form home company. Here’s why.
Why BBB Approved Work at Home Companies?
The Better Business Bureau (BBB) rates companies based on perceived trustworthiness. This rating largely relies on the number of proven complaints and complaint history.
If you research a company and can’t find them on the BBB, they may not have information on them. And even if you do find them and their rating isn’t an “A” or higher, doesn’t mean you should automatically write them off. Instead, proceed with caution and research further.
However, if you feel much better applying to a company that has a strong reputation (and I don’t blame you for that!) here are 15 BBB approved work at home companies you can check out.
