Tech Support Jobs... from home?


Looking for tech support jobs?    

Interested in ways to earn extra cash from home ? 

Good! 

As it turns out, these two could work hand in hand with each other.


To skip straight to the list of companies that offer this type of work, simply scroll down!


I first discovered the salary possibilities offered via tech support jobs when I was taking my certification classes for LiveOps


Since I was considered an independent contractor with LiveOps,
the company would not pay for any technical difficulties that I might encounter, (unlike a company such as Working Solutions which takes care of any technical issues you may encounter at no cost to you). 


Instead, the company recommended a tech support company that was knowledgeable with LiveOps processes and requirements. 


That company was named CrossLoop and while it was a reputable company, it was expensive. 


However, I paid the price (sighing) and I was grateful for their assistance as I was not able to figure out the issue I was having on my own.


Now, I consider myself pretty tech savvy but there are some tech issues that are way beyond my comprehension... and so I was very grateful for CrossLoop because not only were they able to sort
out my  issue, they cleaned out my computer a bit and helped it to go faster as well. 



So, the neat thing is that this was all done remotely by the representative that assisted me.

   

He was working from his own home office but was able to work on
my home computer remotely AND I was able to watch everything he was doing via my computer screen to make sure all was done well.




How much did I pay him? 


Around $60 for about 45 minutes of work.  


And here's the kicker. 


I wasn't his only customer. 


He was simultaneously working with 2 other customers at the same exact time.


Ok, so that means that he potentially was making close to $200 for about an hour of work. 


Not bad, right? 


And he was very busy...I was on a 2 day waiting list to get his assistance for my tech issue. 


This rep told me that he was booked solid for the foreseeable future. 

Now, who knows, this could have been an anomaly; admittedly with jobs such as these, there are busy times and not so busy times.

Still, if you have the experience and education needed to work these tech support jobs, you might just have a very nice paycheck.


As far as careers at home go, these types of tech support jobs seem to be the wave of the future. 


Technology is advancing at a fast clip and we are all just trying to catch up with the times.

If you are searching for a way to earn extra money from home, it might be worth your time and money to take some classes in information technology!


Simply check out your local community college for a list
of available classes or research accredited colleges or universities that will allow you to take these types of courses online, it doesn't get better than that!


Admittedley you will need to have a technical support background whether that be from years of experience or education, so please keep that in mind as you are researching the companies and job boards that I have listed below.


Also, please keep  in mind that, while not all of these companies are hiring right now, they may be hiring sometime in the near future.


I always advise to go back every so often and check on the newest updates and to check on whether their hiring has opened up again.


 Good luck!
