Is working online a good or a bad work?
I have heard a lot about online business for example like data entry, computer operator etc and i have also heard about its advantage but what trouble me is that some of my friend who were working in that field have said that it is useless and just time consuming. According to them online work is just a way to attract people but not for payment or some kind of thing like that.
Recently i have joined in data entry and also i am interested in some other kind of online job that i can do staying in home. But after hearing my friend, i am confused. I have already paid for my training so that i can engage in online work. What should i do now? Is it good or is it really like my friend said?
Please help me

Don't listen to your friend (too much). If you feel good about your job it means that it is good so don't worry. You can still improve your skills and go on with your career. For me, you should definitely try it and see how it will be

Online working is related to information technology and working with information technology can never be so bad.

You have raised a very good point the current era says that technology stays ahead of time and if technology is ahead of time how it will be bad cause you are going to get something that will provide you a long term success and this can never be so bad.

Working online is good. Usually at the beginning, it is difficult because of a lot of information to learn about the online job you are doing. Take time to invest in yourself. Patience is one of the key components to succeed. Like any regular jobs, this counts as experience too working online. Cheers to your success Sir

Working online at home for the rest of your life actually have negative side effects on your life, emotionally and mentally. It is very different working in an office than in the home, though of course, it also has benefits and advantages and you what it is. In the end, it isn't really a bad work, you still earn from it (if you are cautious and know about what you are working for) and more time in your home with your family. I'd see it as a temporary work which depends on circumstances life has to give.

There are a lot of legit sites online that offer legit jobs and that really pay out. But there are also a ton of scammers online that offer fake jobs and does not pay out. So it's really your responsibility to make sure that the job you are entering is a legit one and not only to scam you and only waste your time, effort and energy. You could ask forums online like these about those sites that you are about to sign up to and ask people here in this forum or site if those sites that you are eyeing are legit or just scams. You could also check out different reviews about them and see all the feedback of the review if they have common experience about the sites that your interested in.

For me it is not bad. Like me I have online job as sideline because my salary is not enough for our daily expenses. So maybe I gain little but still it helps me a lot.

It depends. Online work can be good or bad thing. If you search on the net, there are good and bad comments. If you interview people, you can hear good and bad comments as well. But it all depends on what they do and what skills they have. And also, your friend has different, character, attitude and skills to you. You can't just believe all he/she said. You don't know how he/she do the work or maybe they just have a wrong choice of work. Just a tip, it's easier to ask someone who becomes successful in his field in online work. There are many people out here who become successful in online work. They found something and do something that your friend don't, so they have different results. But if you or your friend also do what those successful online workers do, you will also succeed. You will most likely achieve the same results that they have. Because you do the same work. Just do some research and you will find online jobs that give nice rewards and income.
Just an anology, example you're an engineer and you will take a board exam. In board exam, there are graduates who fail and there are graduates who passed. If you ask both sides, they can give you positive and negative comments.
In fact, there's a higher percentage of graduates who failed than those who pass. But because you want to pass, who do you think you will ask questions and tips.,from those who pass or those who fail? Of course from those who passed. Just ask the right people. Find those who succeed in their online jobs and check what they do.

I get what's the point of your friend and to be honest, there is some online job that is not worthy of your time. They pay very low like surveys, transcription, typing jobs, and a lot more. If you think you have skills in data entry or virtual assitant then go and try it. Explore the internet world. Sooner or later you will realized what is best for you.

Yes, working online is good.
It actually depends on what type of job that you're going to do. If you're doing data entry then its really time consuming and the pay is really low but that's just because that type of work is the easiest. A lot of people really gives up on data entry right away because the pay is low and your doing a lot of work. So what you need to do is research and look for the type of job that you really excel at. Also, look for legit paying jobs, its not gonna be easy but if you found one then your good to go. I'm still actually looking for jobs online I've tried a lot of sites a lot of them are not available in my country, some jobs that I'm not good at and sometimes the pay is really low. ALL YOU REALLY NEED IS PATIENCE. I learned that its not going to happen overnight. You have to work because its a job, you can't just expect to join a job and they'll turn you into a millionaire just for signing up.
What you need to ask yourself is:
1. Are you mentally and physically prepared?
2. What type of job would you be doing?
3. Are you looking for a part time job or a full time?
4. What company would you be applying to? Or what site?
5. Do you have a bank account/Paypal/Peyza/Skrill? Where would they pay you?
6. Are you ready to wait if no task available for you? Or can you work with a deadline?
And many more but I think you got the point.
What you need to remind yourself.
1. Its a Job,
2. It wont happen overnight,
3. And Be patient.
That so far is what I learned in working online.
I hope this helps.

I don't believe that there is no such thing as bad work, if your work is legal and you're not doing anything yo hurt someone just to earn money, whatever your job is, that is a good job. Now, working online is actually good for people who has the capacity to do so and has the patient to earn in the comfort of their home. Not all people would decide to go online, but I believe that the bottom line is whatever your job is as long as you are happy and as long as you are enjoying what your doing online or not just do what makes you happy and always do good in your field.

Personally, I chose to work online because of so many advantages it has to offer me so, to answer your question for me its a good work. However in your case, if you are just starting online and have no experience at all, don't go for jobs that will require you to pay for registration. It could be illegal or a scam most of the time but sometimes it isn't. So, you have to help yourself... Research on jobs that you are going to join and check the reviews of that particular company if it has a good reputation or what not. It's always to step ahead than be sorry.

Working online is great as long as you're having fun and you have time to do it. If it serve as outlet for stress or it energizes you while doing it then it cannot be wrong. First try to do it part time so you can get a feel of it, by then you will know if it is right for you. Don't focus on the monetary part while doing it part time, you must be enjoying it. Weather a particular online job pays well or less, the experience of doing it is much important for you to stay longer on it. The same concept applies for 8-5 kind of jobs in the corporate world. You need to test the water before diving through it. There are legitimate online jobs available out there like Upwork, Youtube, Amazon and etc. These sites pay well but you have to work hard to reap the reward.

Working online is quite worth it. The only hard part is to actually find a website or an employer which are trustworthy enough for you to actually work on with. However, we cannot deny the fact that there are some others that are too demandable and picky with your work but, you know, work is work. You got to do what you have to do.
Just forget what your friend is saying. You haven't even fully tried it yet. Get a bit of experience first before you judge it.

Depends on where you have applied, but most legit companies do not and will ask not you for initial payment before getting hired. Why? Because they are Legit companies that workers to work for them. Now to answer your question, yes online jobs is a good option, you just have to know where you are good at at find a legit company that pays you fairly for the services you offered to them. Btw, I work online as a General Transcriber. The Pay is okay.

Working online for good, I think it also depend if your just doing it for part time then it will help you to add up on your income. But if your doing it as a full time then you must enjoy and like this work because in order to succeess on this business is patience to your self and determination. Its not that easy to earn online their are legit sites that really pay you but their are also lots of tons and scammers out their. Working online for fulltime is not for a big family to live a life, it may help maybe but not for all the needs of the member of the family. I lf you are single then grab this work for you, but if you are a family man and this is the only income of all the members of the family I suggest to think it twice.

I work for almost 8 years as a customer service in a call center but 2 years ago I got into accident and I have to stay at home for 6 months at least to recover from the accident. At that time I decided to work at home as a freelancer. A lot of works are being offered online and you can't tell if they're legit or not so risky so really have to be careful.
At first I had a hard time to find job online and it took me a month to find a decent one. My first online job is data entry salary is like 3 times lower than my salary when I'm still working in a call center, then I tried to find another job to add additional income. I was lucky and hired as a Virtual assistant in a American company. Salary is good but still not the same amount that I am earning before. Still I continue and enjoy life working at home. No Tax, No Time pressure to fix your self and go to work and you have all the time for yourself. Now I'm doing this online job for almost two years now and I'm still happy about it. My salary became bigger after a year experience in doing online job.

Work online is 10 times better than working offline because online you can do it at the comfort and privacy of your home.
I have had heated business discussions with clients in my boxers and flip flops while puffing a cig and sipping coffee.
Please give me a workplace example that can compete with that?
