    As you wanted you worked from home, basically, finding this type of jobs is hard. As you are java programmer, you can contact some software development companies for their outsource works based on your knowledge.

    Welcome to ITKE, Rose1947! Are you looking to stay in the Java sector? If not, what other areas are you looking into?

    You can consider learning to develop mobile apps.  There are companies that hire remote workers for this type of work, and you can also develop and sell your own apps on the different app stores/marketplaces.

    A job that allows working from home are few and far between. What you may be able to do is some consulting work that offers more flexibility. You state you have 1.6 years of exp. How long have you been out of the work force currently?

    Though about this some more, if you have been out of the IT field for 6 years, it may be even a bit tougher. Code and platforms change constantly. It may be a good idea to start playing around with the code again. It might even be beneficial to get a website and hosting service and create a few website/apps that you can you to showcase your talents to a perspective employer.

    What do you like to do? What do you feel that you are good at? You could do website development, custom app development, or perhaps get into the field of information security. I have written a fair amount on this subject - check out the following webpage for links to my various TechTarget articles:
