What Are Some Legitimate Work At Home Opportunities?

What Are Some Legitimate Work At Home Opportunities?

The Internet and newspapers are filled with misleading adverts that claim you can make quick money while working from home. Many are shady but luckily there are some legitimate ones which contrary to popular belief require hard work. Following are some genuine ways of making money while working in the comfort of your home.

Web/Software Developer

Web and software developers usually work based on milestones and deliverables. They are given the requirements for a website/software by a client and they have to deliver it within a specific timeframe. The client only cares about the final product. You can develop the site/software from home and deliver to the client remotely.

Call center agent

Handling customer care issues via phone is easy these days. Some companies hire call center agents who work from home.  Calls can be routed to your cell phone, via the Internet through VoIP or through dedicate devices which they send to you with operating instructions. This enables you to work from anywhere and customers won’t even know where you’re answering the call from.

 Virtual Assistant

Some companies who don’t want to spend resources on a full-time assistant employ a virtual assistant who helps to book meetings, minute taking via conference calls, transcription, and a variety of other tasks. These assistants can often work for several companies at once and make a decent sum of money.

Freelancing on the Internet

Websites like oDesk, Elance, iWriter, Freelancer and several others offer part time and full time opportunities to regular people with payments being handled online. Majority of the work can be done remotely from the comfort of your home. The types of jobs vary from writing, administrative, multimedia production and research to mention a few. There are also sites for academic writing which pay quite well.

Translator

If you’re fluent in more than one language you can find work as a home-based translator translating books, audio files or documents.

IT Support

With remote login tools like VPN clients, TeamViewer, Remote Desktop, SSH clients/servers, remote access to IT devices and servers is easier than ever. Some companies hire part time or full time IT support personnel to manage their systems.
