Which one of these two jobs would you choose? working in corporate or working from home?
1) Working as a business development account manager for a healthcare staffing firm $23.50 an hour. 2) Working from home selling health/life insurance over the phone and computer for an agency that pays $5000 a month guaranteed if I hit the target. If not, I don't have a job. If I hit the target, they pay commission on top of that $5000 if my commission is higher and make me a sales manager.

I'd take the corporate job. More stable, more trustworthy, more likely to be long term. Any company that offers the possibility of working from home while earning huge amounts of money is usually a con or at least not as lucrative as they first make it out to be.

1, just because I hate sales and prefer a sure thing.

1 without a doubt.

Option number 1 seems a lot more stable in my opinion. I'd work there.

I'm self employed and to be honest, it's great. But selling life insurance in the current economic climate would be a very tough job I would imagine... More

1 is the safer choice, 2 will probably be more comfortable but much more volatile. In this economy I'd go with 1 to be safe, salesmen are a dime a dozen these days so they can easily replace you if they need/want to.

Job #1 is a real job where #2 is a mass marketing scheme trying to get leads for health/life sales which is a very tough business.(you will not reach the target or earn the $5000). Good Luck

First you need to ensure that the home-based job is truly legit. If so, since it is such a shaky thing, I would take the coporate job. You would know you had a steady paycheck coming in with that one.
