Katrina, here's a recent post that might help. One of the niche market sites included is Flexjobs - maybe that would help. Indeed also has remote listings. Many companies today are seeking people that can do off-site admin work, customer service, etc.... good luck to you (and to all!)

Hi Katrina, I also live really remotely, with few options and a severely damaged economy. I am not an entry level employee but in order to bring in money while I don't have a 'regular' job I am helping a local orchard process their gift box orders. I am doing this from home, and it is VERY temporary, but it helps with the gaping hole in my checking account. Do you have contacts with small businesses who might need extra data entry, cleaning, or mailing help? I'm not sure which state you are in, but there are generally economic development agencies run by the state department of commerce that may have contacts with local businesses. Here in Washington our Work Source (employment) offices are also pretty helpful- even in our very rural area. Feel free to DM me if you want to talk it over, or brainstorm for more ideas once I know your general skill set. Good luck, it is a very challenging time, Sarah

I don't know anyone. Most of the downtown is shuttered and they have few available jobs anywhere. What is available are in places that hire and fire on a regular basis and can't keep staff nor do they work with employees for scheduling.

I agree with Charlotte about using recruitment agencies to help you find a job. You might try some career counseling with your state's unemployment service. Also, you don't mention what your AA degree is in so it's hard to know what type of advice to give you. There are a lot of opportunities online for junior level workers depending on what your career goals are. I would suggest trying to find a mentor who is doing the type of work you would like to do.

It's a standard Associate's in Arts because I could afford the last few classes to finish that one out over the Business one I was attempting.

An Associate in Arts is still a very good degree. Since it's a more general course of study you should have lots of options career-wise. A quick internet search brings up a range of jobs from Paralegal, HR, Executive Assistant, Preschool Teacher, etc. It sounds like you would like to pursue a business career, so perhaps you should look at jobs related to business like HR or Exec Assistant which are at the junior level. With a lot of businesses operating remotely right now, anything that gets your foot into the door of a company would be a start. Also, I would recommend joining LinkedIn and start networking with everyone you can.

Hi katrina, I'm so sorry to hear that you are struggling to find legitimate employment from home. Unfortunately, there is so much competition at the moment! It may be worth looking for online recruitment agency's as they (hopefully) won't provide MLMs in disguise offers! Best of luck in your search.
