The competition for a single remote job listing is fierce. In every job sharing group on Facebook, the first question asked as soon as someone shares a job is “remote?” Popular job search sites are also inundated with requests for remote jobs from people who want to work at home. It only makes sense that there are people who are willing to pay to subscribe to job listings sites that offer access to telecommuting or “work from home” options.
Over the past few years, I subscribed to a few different job listing services and I found them very helpful at that time. Lately, however, I’m not feeling as if the ends justify the means. With that in mind, I’d like to give you a few things to think about before you invest in a paying remote job listing subscription.
