The following companies hire people to work from home – mostly answering phone calls and/or email or setting appointments, although that’s not always the case. They are real work from home jobs and for most, if not all, you’ll have a set schedule. You may be asked to have a landline phone as well as a headset and a computer that passes their specifications.
Search Engine Evaluator Jobs: You’ll be paid to to evaluate search results so that they are more relevant and accurate. You have to take a test – so take it seriously if you want one of these jobs. Take your time, pay attention, and do your very best. If you’re hired you’ll make between $12 and $15 an hour.
Transcription Jobs: Please know that most of the transcription jobs you’ll find in an online search are bogus. The following, however, are legitimate. As a beginner you’ll make from $10 to $15 an hour.
Work from Home Job Searches:
WorkRemotely: Office not required! A stellar place to look for companies hiring remote workers.
Indeed is a job search site that crawls all the places it can find online in search of a job for you. I love it and I’ve recommended it again and again to friends & family.
A targeted Google search can yield some good results, but you have to be extra vigilant. When you’re searching for work online, whether Indeed or Google or other sites, try to use words like: remote, telecommute, or flexible rather than the potentially spammy phrase “work from home.”
Flexjobs: In my opinion, Flexjobs is a fantastic site that can help you find a great job that will allow you to work from home. It isn’t a free site, but it’s one that has a fantastic reputation. I am not a Flexjobs affiliate – I just know how great they are based on friends and family who’ve used them to find work they love. Go here to take a peek at the newest jobs listed.
