It's a common question I get asked often by readers via email..
"Are there any work at home opportunities that are offered internationally?"
I'm here to assure you that yes, there are many work at home jobs based both inside and outside the U.S.
I've run across many over the years and have finally decided to buckle down and write down a comprehensive list of as many of them as I can find.
Please spread the word to anyone who might be looking, as I know there are many readers based internationally who are looking for something that will help them earn money from home.
Please also do be aware that these companies are not always hiring.
But as always, I urge you to check in regularly with the ones that interest you, so that you can jump on their next hiring opportunity.
One last thing to note is that pay can vary greatly from country to country so keep that in mind when you find one that interests you.
The neat thing about these positions are that they are a non-phone position.
Let me clarify that you may be required to have a smart phone if you are evaluating web search results on a mobile
phone, however, you will not need to be answering calls in a sales or customer service capacity at all.
( I "see" some of you wiping your brow in relief, no worries!)
You will need to be pretty handy dandy on your computer or smartphone and pay can vary wildly, as I stated above, from country to country.
Please see my page on this work opportunity here for a list of the current companies that hire worldwide here.
Transcription is easy enough that even I was able to do this work pretty easily and make some good money (and that's saying something!)
It's not for everyone.
In fact, if you have too keen an eye for detail and are a bit of a prefectionist, you may want to think twice about this job opportunity.
I know that's probably the opposite of everything you've ever heard when it comes to transcription.
But here's my take on it.
You can either concentrate on your speed or concentrate on your accuracy.
If you concentrate on your speed, you will only get faster (and yes, more accurate with time).
It's all about practice and repetition on those keys.
But if you drive yourself crazy trying to be 100% accurate while you are transcribing, you may go very slowly and it may discourage you to the point that you don't want to do it anymore.
I may be wrong, but that was my take on it.
There are companies out there that allow you to work in the area of remote trancription from anywhere in the world.
Here are 4 of them :
So, working for this company means you would be an independent contractor. (For U.S residents, this simply means that taxes aren't taken out of your paycheck).
