Starting with the first topic, when you are looking for legitimate work from home jobs and you come across a company or website that offers you potential work that you are interested in, try to find out as much as you can about the company before you apply. Read their terms of service and conditions. Check out popular forums online for more information about the company.

Stay away from websites that charge a membership fee for access to legitimate work at home jobs. There are so many free resources available on the Internet for you to find legitimate work at home. Make sure that they can provide you with the necessary contact information such as an email address, telephone number, official website, etc. If you are in doubt, check the Better Business Bureau to get a detailed report on the company. If you have a friend or know of someone who works for the company, ask them about their experience and if they have received payment. Of course, there are other things that you can do, if you are in doubt. My advice would be to use whatever method you feel most comfortable with.

Many companies are asking new writers to take a test or submit a writing sample before assignments are given. This is to determine your writing skills and where you will fit in with the company. Make sure that you read all the instructions given before you submit your writing sample. This will avoid having to resubmit your writing sample. Make sure that you do research for the subject that you will be writing on, if it is allowed. Try to stay on the subject and not deviate too much. Do not use too many elaborate words. If you overthink your writing sample, you may spend too much time on it and get discouraged. Keep it simple. The most important thing to remember is not to stress about your writing sample. This is your time to shine. Be yourself and you will do fine.
