10 Work at Home Jobs That Don’t Require Being on the Phone

10 Work at Home Jobs That Don’t Require Being on the PhoneBy Holly Reisem Hanna

Dear Work at Home Woman,

Is there anything non-phone related that’s legitimate? I currently work for a call center and hate constantly being on the phone!

Thanks, Hope

Hi Hope – I know where you’re coming from. I used to be a prior authorization nurse for Medicaid. I was on the phone all day approving nursing visits and medical equipment. Not only was it exhausting, but it made me want to crawl into a cave at the end of the day. Fortunately, there are lots of jobs that you can do from home without having to be on the phone.

Here are 10 different types of work and respective companies that hire telecommuters.

Good luck and keep us posted on your work at home journey.

Bookkeeping and Accounting:

If numbers and organization excite you, then bookkeeping may be right up your alley. Help business owners organize and input their monthly income and expenses. Some of these companies do require experience or an accounting degree to apply, check them out for more details.

Interested in becoming a bookkeeper? Here’s a free training program to check out!

Customer Support, Chat, and Email Agents:

Do you enjoy assisting people, but prefer not to be on the phone? Provide customer service detail via live chat and email. Most of these companies require individuals to be proficient typists.

10 Work at Home Jobs That Don’t Require Being on the PhoneData Entry:

This is probably one of the most frequent work at home jobs that I receive questions about. In fact, I was hesitant to even include them due to the fact that they pay so little – I’m talking pennies per document. But here are a few to check out if you’re dead set on doing data entry.

Freelance Writing:

From blog posts and newsletters, to articles and advertising copy people are always looking for writers. Check with some of the major freelance sites, like Upwork or Problogger and see how you can offer up your writing services.

Short Tasks:

Short tasks or micro-tasks are just what they sound like – jobs that take a short time to complete, often times only minutes. Payouts and tasks (watching videos, testing websites, Internet searches, etc.) vary greatly, so make sure to check out these sites to see what’s available.

Smartphone Apps:

Online competition is fierce, so companies are getting creative with how they reach consumers. Instead of spending marketing dollars on traditional advertising, brands are reaching out to consumers in unique ways, like smartphone apps. The great thing about using your smartphone to make money, is there are real customer reviews for each app, so you can get a better idea of which ones are legit and which ones to stay away from.


There are many legitimate websites where you can offer your opinion in exchange for money, rewards, and sweepstake entries. While you’re not going to get rich from participating in surveys, it is a fun way to share your thoughts on products and services, and you’ll receive compensation your time.


Do you have excellent listening skills? Are you a fast typist? Help businesses transcribe audio files into written documents.


Are you a math whiz? Tutoring can be a wonderful home based business opportunity, especially for those people who have an extensive knowledge of a subject; such as a college student who is majoring in English, a school teacher, or a person who is fluent a foreign language.

Web Search Evaluators:

Search engine evaluators to provide feedback to development teams to ensure that Internet search results are accurate and relevant to the search query’s intent.

This is just a glimpse of some of the work at home jobs and opportunities that don’t require you to be on the phone. For some more ideas make sure to check our article, 99 work at home career ideas for women. Or if you have a suggestion, please leave it below for all to learn from.

    Hello, I am looking for a work at home job that doesn’t require working over the phone. I don’t want to be an independent contractor. Also I am in college, so I need something really flexible, maybe something that I can choose when I work. If anyone here could tell me a few companies that match my description, that would be great! Thanks.

    I too am an RN looking for something home based. Any suggestions?

    • 15.1

      Hi Deanna, There are lots of jobs for nurses to do from home, but sadly, the majority of them require some phone work. The areas that don’t require too much phone work are going to be teaching, consulting, utilization review, and instructional design. FlexJobs is a great place to search for these jobs, but also companies like Humana, Aetna, and McKesson hire remote nurses. If you’re interested in freelance gigs or starting your own business, you can look into becoming a legal nurse consultant. Vickie Milazzo has a course: Good luck!
