is that a scam,??

Yes it is. Any home online job is a scam. You won't hire your kids tutor just by having him/her fill out a questionnaire online ?

Similarly, you can't work for a company without having a formal/informal interview which is face to face. Some companies do offer home based jobs but that is usually a very small number and do not get paid too well. There is usually seniority involved for home jobs and it is only mentioned at the time of interview. Hope this helps !!

It is a big lie, not always you need to have an interview face to face to get a job.

I think Barbara is trying to be kind with all the travelers and find a possible solution when they travel during long time and they need to earn money frequently.

I believe she did not do something wrong when she put this information in this post. So, it is not a real reason to report her.

By the way, online jobs exists. It not common but it exist. Well, you have to take care because some companies are Scam but not all of them.

This one is not a scam as I've worked as an annotator for several years already.

The dataentryjobs.us looks very dodgy...on the other hand, I've also been employed with Appen Butler Hill as well and it is a real job, 4 hours per day (flexible timetable) and they PAY well... :-)

I agree with peggy. Barbara was may be just being nice when she posted this. It could be a scam, but may be it's not.
There are some really cool jobs out there, that you can do while traveling wether it's online or not. I also have a job that I can do pretty much anywhere in the world and I also did not have to go to a job interview.. I hope everybody can find the right solution for oneself
