Does working from home sound like a dream come true? It’s easier than ever before to make that dream a reality.

According to FlexJobs, telecommuting has grown 103 percent since 2005. That is good news for workers, since up to 90 percent of Americans say they would like to work from home at least part time.

FlexJobs founder and CEO Sara Sutton Fell said in a statement:

Job seekers consistently report that telecommuting is the most desired form of flexible work, with many willing to take a pay cut, forfeit vacation time or give up matching retirement savings plans for a telecommuting work arrangement,

If you are serious about finding a legitimate job where you can work from home, it’s helpful to know where to begin searching. That is especially true in light of the fact that so many scammers are looking to rip off job seekers.
