I am seeking job boards/recruiters that cater exclusively to the work
at home market? I am also seeking the names of companies that maybe
currently hiring for work at home positions in Tech Support or
Customer Service.

Hello hipraiser,

Working at home is ideal, and I have a lot of experience looking at
boards trying to find those "telecommute" jobs. In my experience the
"Work at Home" boards didn't have enough ads matching the kind of work
I wanted to do. Many of them list too many "surefire" offers to buy
starter kits for home businesses. However, you might have better luck.
Here are a few:

Homeworkers (#1 above) lists recruiters (in a pull-down menu next to
"Find a Job"), and offers a number of extra services to work at home
types. Money from Home (#3) requires a  $35 membership fee, but gets
good reviews from a couple of media sources. Telecommute-jobs (the
last one) will blast your resume to thousands of recruiters for a fee.

The boards which I have found the most successful, are the large
boards, such as  (, and craigslist
( )  I'm giving you the L.A. web
address because I don't know what city you are in. However, if you go
there and select your own city, then you'll get the right one for you.
Both these boards list telecommute jobs, and allow you to create
"agents" to find the jobs for you. Agents save you a tremendous amount
of time: once you plug in the job field, type of job
(contract,part-time, telecommute, etc) then the site e-mails you
whenever an ad matching your specs appears.

Flipdog ( apparently has a lot of tech support
so you'd probably want to look there,too. 

I have not searched out companies hiring in tech support or customer
because I really don't have enough info about you, your skills, and
preferences. If you try any of the above, I think you'd be a lot more
successful than I would. Good luck in your job search. If I can be of
further help, please let me know!
Sincerely, Cath-ga

What are your job skills? What area do you prefer to work in? The general 
"work at home" boards are all over the map. Might help to get more specific.
