Hey everyone. This “Next Job At Home,” review is a slight departure from some of the opportunities that I often review, but because they are targeting people who are looking to work from home, I thought it may be something you’d like to hear about.
The problem is, in many cases, websites that actively claim to be job directories for work-from-home jobs are not really offering work-from-home opportunities and can often lead you to scams online as well.
So, what is this? Is Next Job At Home a scam, or a legit website job directory? Let’s dig in and I will share what I’ve found.
Review In Brief:
Money Making Opportunity: job directory
Cost to join: free
Verdict: Not recommended & some scam warnings.
My first impressions of this website were generally… not very good. Right away, it did not look trustworthy to me.
They invite you to sign up with your email address on the front page and say you will receive new job notifications every day for work-from-home jobs opportunities.
They explain the type of job positions you may be sent, which you can check out via the image below.
The big warning sign for me initially, was that they had some Ads to the right hand side of the screen which led to one particular scam I was already aware of.
These Ad placements also contained affiliate tracking ID’s – which means these are products they are promoting a commission.
One of these ads led you to automated dailiy income– which, (if you have read my review) is definitely not something I’d recommend getting involved in at all.
They also claim that every job posted on their website is screened for legitimacy.
Clearly, that is not the case at all, as they’re promoting a scam product.
Where Are The Contact Details?
Another negative sign, is there don’t seem to be any direct contact details for the company, you can’t see who they really are.
No email or address contact for them.
They don’t even have a “contact us,” page on their website.
So, you’re trusting this company with your email address, even though you have no idea who they are an have no ability to contact them.
Again, these are all something that should exist on a legitimate website.
So, What Is Next Job At Home Really?
What “Next Job At Home,” claims to be is a free website that you can sign up to, that will provide you with listings to work-from-home jobs.
Well, it sort of is that to an extent, but they aren’t really looking to help you find a job.
They actually hope to funnel you into signing up to opportunities that they’re an affiliate for, (such as automated daily income).
When I went to “job search,” various positions came up. The first one I clicked to, wasn’t a job at all but a sponsored Ad promoting a work opportunity.
However, when I clicked to learn more – I was taken straight to a 404 error.
Other jobs took me straight to “Zip recruiter,” which is an online job posting board.
I noticed that some of the dates on zip recruiter were inconsistent with the posted dates on the next job from home website.
For example, on one webtie it may day the job was posted yesterday, but the actual job may say it was posted several days ago – or vice versa.
So, all the jobs that I checked that did not jump to a 404 error, jumped on to the Zip recruiter website.
What this tells me, is that jobs are simply taken directly from the Zip recruiter website and therefore, are not individually checked for legitimatcy from the next job from home team, (if there is a team).
They are simply pulling jobs from the Zip Recruiter website, using relevant search terms – related to working from home. There is nothing more sophisticated about it beyond that.
While Zip recruiter in themselves are not a scam, they do have some mixed reviews online. They have also been criticised for not having up to date job listings.
As you can see here via trust pilot– although they do have a good rating on the surface, there are plenty of unhappy customers if you dig deeper.
Also, I do believe that some of the jobs posted on the zip-recruiter website, claiming to be work-from-home jobs… have ended up being fake jobs as well.
Although, I know this can be found on plenty of legitimate job boards. Fake jobs can sometimes end up on them.
But the thing to be concerned with here, is not that they link to jobs via Zip recruiter…
Their real intention here to to hope you click on one of their work-from-home opportunity promotional ads and banners.
Most of the Ads and banners I found, led to automated daily income.
Therefore, it’s clear that this website does not have finding you a legitimate job high up on their agenda. Well, it’s no where on their agenda.
Legitimate job boards, do not have promotional banners linking out to scams online.
Careful With Your Email
I’d warn against giving this company your email address. As I’ve already shown, this company is not trustworthy and you also will be unable to contact them.
There have been reports online of receiving multiple spam emails from this website and not knowing how they could opt out of the emails once they’ve signed up.
It’s likely they will use your email to link you to scam work-from-home opportunities as well.
Well, I decided to sign up with my own email – but one I use especially for signing up for suspected scams, (you can imagine how much SPAM enters that account!).
No sooner as I’d clicked to sign up, I was redirected to another page.
This page contained 5 links to their “recommended, ” work from home jobs. So, what were they?
As you can see in the small print, they specifically state that they are not sending you to recommended legitimate jobs here at all, but work at home opportunities.
Link #1 led to automated daily income, (MOBE funnel)
Link #2 led to a 404 error.
Link #3 led to a 404 error.
Link #4 led to automated daily income AGAIN.
Link #5 led to a 404 error.
There are lots of links leading to 404 errors on this site and my guess is that, whatever scams they were linking to, are no longer live or available.
What Is A Business Opportunity?
Next Job At Home are really trying to sell you business opportunities, they are not trying to find you paid work.
With opportunities, you are not paid a salary, you do not have a boss, you are not employed by anyone.
If you do make any money with a business opportunity, you will be considered self employed.
The problem is, many business opportunities will try and pass themselves off as jobs.
You may see them posted on job boards online saying something like…. “Earn $500 a week from home.”
Basically, if you have to pay any money to be involved, it’s potentially a business opportunity – it is not a job.
With a job, you will have to go through interviews and your previous experience and qualifications will be an important factor in determining your suitability.
With a business opportunity, there is no interview and there will likely be some exchange of money to be part of it.
Is Next Job At Home A Scam
This company has disguised themselves in a way, by linking to Zip recruiter.
By doing so, they provide some minute chance of you actually finding some legitimate work.
How likely that is, I’m unsure.
But it looks as though Next Job At Home are using Zip Recruiter as their front.
Under the guise of a legit job board, they can plug in their affiliate links to third parties and promote them to unsuspecting job seekers.
If you’re looking for a legit work from home job – your best bet is to look at one of the big name job boards, but to still be cautious prior to applying for work.
No legitimate job should request that you pay them, for example.
Another thing is, that this website really has zero value.
If you really want to checkout jobs that zip recruiter have to offer; you should simply go directly to their website and search for relevant jobs yourself.
However, be overly cautious when you do see any work-from-home job posting, because many of these can turn out to be scams – even on legit job boards.
How To Find Legit Jobs From Home
As I said, your best bet is to go and look for big name legitimate job boards, You can check here, for some suggestions.
Monster jobs also has a useful post here, explaining how you can avoid work-from-home scams.
Most of the things online that are listed as work-from-home jobs are not really JOBS at all. They are usually classed as “business opportunities,” which is something I explained earlier.
Some will be legitimate opportunities, (with potential to make real money) but many of them are just scams – designed to take money from you and not actually teaching you ways to make money.
If you want a real JOB, then you will be looking to join a company where you will be employed and paid a salary.
With a legit job, you will NOT have to pay anything to be part of it.
Joining an opportunity is nothing like a job – sometimes you will need to pay to access some training.
If it’s a multi-level-marketing business; you usually have to pay a fee to get started.
If you’re desperate for money and need to support yourself and your family, I strongly recommend you get a regular job before you start thinking about working for yourself, or starting your own business.
That is because, it can take a long time before you start generating a profit.
Some “opportunities,” online may claim you can replace your day job in the next 30 days if you follow their system… any program that promises you can make a lot of money quickly, is generally just a total scam.
People that are desperate for money are in a dangerous position, as they’re more likely to take risks and fall for scams that promise to change their lives.
While there are so many ways to make money from home, pretty much everything that leads to decent pay does rely on you learning some skills and always takes a lot of work, time and effort.
I was already a housewife when I started to seek out to make money online, I was lucky in that respect and have the time to work on it.
But, I do know many people who have had full-time jobs and have worked evenings, mornings, during the commute, over their weekends…
whenever they could. With the aim of eventually leaving their day job eventually, but making sure they’re in a secure position first.
Really, it’s all about consistency and dedication.
Several years ago now, I started slowly to start making money online, by learning how to build websites/blogs online and then monetise them in various ways.
I’m not a technical person, so if you aren’t either – don’t let that stop you.
Do you have any experience with Next Job At Home? I’d love to hear from you. Let me know in the comments.
All the best,
