Home Town Home Working: How to find work-from-home jobs in your local area


How to find online jobs in your hometown

Homeworking is the greatest change that is going to hit the modern Western economic model, business, and all our lives. It is going to shift our relationship between place, workplace and home in a range of different and exciting ways.

One of the greatest opportunities that is presented by home working is the chance for people who are not based in the employment hots spots of London, New York, Berlin, Barcelona or San Francisco to find work wherever they are. This will hopefully reduce regional inequalities and reduce the suburban and rural brain drains.

So how can you find work in your hometown that is online?

Now, the headline for this article is a bit of a misnomer given that the job does not have to be in your hometown, however, it could be. Homeworking plus the internet offers a fantastic opportunity to take up all kinds of online, remote, and telecommuting roles.

So, we have got the initial formalities underway, let’s start to dive into the ways that you can find online home working roles.

Indeed, is the place to be.

Indeed, is an amazing resource for finding work. It is an aggregator that pulls in the text of adverts across the globe from probably a million websites and places them all in one place.
