There used to be a time when if you were looking for a job, say for an accountant or receptionist, you’d scan the ads and look for “Accountant” or “Receptionist.” There was no gray area. We knew what those job titles meant and we searched accordingly. Lately, though, it’s not so cut and dry. I don’t know if businesses are trying to be witty and clever, or if they’re going the hipster route in order to weed out the old-asses like myself, but many of the job titles I come across are too ambiguous to tell what the job is about.
Perhaps I’m dating myself as an old-timer, but back in the day, before the Internet made so many telecommuting options available, job seekers were limited to local classified ads. When it was time for a new situation, we brought several different Sunday newspapers in order to see which companies were hiring. If the classifieds weren’t paying off, job hunters took to the pavement. Armed with a list of businesses, they’d visit as many companies as possible to inquire about open opportunities and leave a resume to keep on file.
Let’s start the week off with another list of freelancing and telecommuting jobs. All jobs listed here today are current and accepting applications as of this writing.

We all have our reasons for wanting to telecommute. Some are more personal, for example, wanting to be home with children. Others are more professional, for example, being able to focus better from a quiet home office rather than the hub bub of an open workplace. Regardless of your preference, sometimes wanting to work from home can cloud one’s judgement when it comes to finding a telecommute job.
A common mistake many career-minded telecommuters make when looking for work, is that they’re approaching the job search from a “Work at Home!!!!!!” angle rather than a “How will this job help me to fulfill my career goals” mindset. The idea of the telecommute should never take away from one’s skill set, desired salary, professionalism, reputation, or plans for the future.
