Do you love to write? Then why not get paid to do it? Work at home writers are needed by a wide variety of companies. If writing isn't your thing though there are plenty of other legitimate opportunities on the work at home companies page.
How do I get hired?
Most of the companies listed below have a simple online application but you do usually need to submit some sample articles. If you are a blogger you can use articles from your blog or guest posts you have done. If you think you are cut out to be a freelance writer but do not have anything published online yet then you need to find a free site that allows anyone to publish articles and write some posts for them before you do anything else. No, you won't make any money, but it will help you land a freelance writing job if you write well and can prove it with your articles published online.
