Finding Work at Home Jobs.com

Exploring the good and the bad side of the work at home world..



Maybe you are a stay at home mom who's looking for a little extra income.


OR


Perhaps you are looking for full time work but with the flexibility that working from home will afford you.




I'll show you where to look and give you the truth about what it's really like to work from home:



There are many different varieties of home based work in the U.S.   Many are legitimate, others... not so much. 

The problem is how to distinguish the legitimate opportunities from the scams and how to find out whether you will be making enough money to make ends meet or whether it will be a big waste of your time.


Explore some of the work at home niches below.  They range from call center work to work at home nursing, transcription work, home-based jobs for teachers... and the list goes on and on.


I will do my best to give you a description of the job itself, the requirements and pay and, for what it's worth, my take on whether it's something that might be worth your time and energy... or not.

Being a work at home mom myself for the past nine years, I have just about seen and heard it all when it comes to home-based jobs.  Many of these companies I have either worked for or gone through the application process with.  (And many of you have written in to me privately to give me the scoop on these companies, thank you for that!)


So, let's explore some of these work opportunities and lets's start

Finding work at home jobs!



Home Based Call Center Work

Home-based call center work involves taking incoming calls (either sales based calls or customer service calls) from your own home office.

  Many of these jobs are flexible, paying anywhere from $8-$30 an hour based on experience.  Many of these companies hire virtual workers as independent contractors ( which basically means you are self employed and responsible for setting aside your own taxes)  however, there are some who do hire representatives to work as employees.  You will find that all companies require a quiet working space, a reliable PC with high speed internet access and a corded phone and phone headset.


Find a list of at home companies that hire call center representatives here.






Tutoring Jobs from home


There are many stay at home moms and dads, not to mention those who are retired, who have a background in education. 

There is quite a need for professionals who have a background in education to work at home as tutors. 

Some companies require little experience ( though they may require that you have a degree or are currently obtaining your degree)  and other companies are looking for highly educated professionals who can teach specific subject matter. 

The question is whether this type of home based work pays well enough for a professional to make a secondary income from home.

Transcription Work at home Companies

If you can type very quickly and accurately,  if you have a good ear for different accents and dialects and enjoy working from the comfort of home, you may be interested in work at home jobs in the area of transcription. 

It is said that there are opportunities for many, whether you are an entry level transcriber or you have experience in specialized transcription such as legal or medical transcription, but is that really the case?

Work at home in the area of Courthouse Research


While working as a courthouse researcher may not officially be classified as a "work at home" opportunity, it can allow for a very flexible schedule, since theoretically you can choose the hours you wish to work (but within the regular courthouse hours of 9-5 Monday-Friday). 

Most companies do not have an hourly requirement that you must fulfill, instead, the job mostly involves getting a set number of records documented  (and it is to your benefit that you get them recorded as quickly as possible for a better paycheck). 

Pay varies from minimum wage to upwards of $15 + per hour, again, depending on how fast you type.

Sounds good but how easy is it to find work with these companies or is this niche already saturated with courthouse researchers?

I go over all of that and more below:

Telephonic Work at Home Jobs for Nurses

Did you know that there is even a work at home niche available for nurses?  There are companies who hire nurses to work in what is called "telephonic triage" whether for private clinics, doctor's offices or other companies. 

McKesson is one such company and United Health Group is another.  As well, there are many other companies that are on the hunt for highly skilled and experienced nurses to work in managerial areas such as clinical case management.

However, what are the requirements, how much experience do you need to have and how much do these types of jobs pay?

Specialty Work for Professionals

It would have never crossed my mind before I worked from home how many jobs can be done from home.   While not all jobs are suited for virtual work, there are some that fit in the virtual world quite nicely.

Take for example, the work that an accountant performs.  Is it typically performed in an office setting? 

Yes.... but... as long as the appropriate equipment is available in your home, can this be a viable work at home opportunity?


I also take a look at other obscure work at home opportunities such as working as a translator:

Mystery Shopping

I always thought Mystery Shopping was one big scam.  Then I saw that my local community college was offering a Mystery Shopping course and I just had to check it out.

What I found out really surprised me:

Online Surveys



Yes, I admit it, online surveys are low paying and perhaps not worth anyone's time . 

But there are some companies that are legitimate and I show you which ones are legitimate here.
