We specialize in work from home jobs. As a 100% remote company for the past six years, we have earned first-hand insight into the world of remote employment, including knowing what is reasonable pay and responsibilities for a given position, how to spot a scam, and where to find the hidden-gem job listings.

And we don’t stop there.

Our team of trained and dedicated researchers visit hundreds of online job resources, including remote-friendly employer websites, industry and specialty job boards, blogs, social media streams, and direct employer listings to bring you the newest remote jobs available.

Yes! We verify the legitimacy of every job posted to our site. Our staff of committed job researchers and summarizers personally screen every job opening and only approve jobs that meet our high standards. We only posts jobs that offer guaranteed payment such as salary, hourly, or project-based.

We do not post fee based, solely commission based, ad typing for Internet sites, or “start your own business” opportunities. We recommend you never pay a fee for “employment” or give out your bank account information to receive payments.

We dedicate a lot of time researching job postings to ensure they are legitimate, but please note Virtual Vocations is a small family-owned and operated company and we simply don’t have the manpower to personally contact every single employer regarding the jobs we find and post to our website.

While we do try our best to screen the positions, once in a while we mess up! Please bear with us if you come across a job lead that doesn’t seem quite right, and PLEASE let us know through our contact page so we can remove the posting promptly and investigate.

Business opportunities and commission-only jobs typically have unrealistic performance expectations and grandiose promises of future income without paying out a dime for your hard work. We believe people should be paid a fair wage for the work they perform. Virtual Vocations only lists jobs from established businesses that are looking for employee or 1099 Independent Contractor.

All jobs listed on our site are less than 30 days old from the date the employer originally posted it. Our staff posts job leads every day, Monday-Saturday to ensure you have access to the latest remote job leads that have been posted by employers within the last 24-72 hours. We make every effort to provide new job leads so you don't waste your time applying to positions that were filled weeks ago.

The time takes each person to find a remote job varies, as do skills and qualifications. We believe that each person has skills in an area that can benefit another person or company, so keep applying and you will have success!

No. We currently do not allow employers to post their own job listings directly to our site. Employers who want to post a job opening on our site must contact us directly so we can ensure the company is legit, the job listing is legal and valid, and the position offers a fair wage.

Paid Subscription Questions

Some employers communicate applicants must live in a specific area while others are completely virtual. Whenever possible we include that information in the job listing.

Virtual Vocations primary goal is to provide you, the job-seeker, with legitimate and current remote job openings. While we do provide the job postings, we are not directly affiliated with the employer and do not have any contact with employers regarding who they do or do not contact for interviews. If an employer has interest in hiring you, they will contact you directly via your email address.
