What Equipment Do You Need to Work From Home?

What Equipment Do You Need to Work From Home?By Holly Reisem Hanna

Dear Work at Home Woman,

What type of computer e.g. speed and equipment do I need for telecommuting or virtual English teaching?

Thanks, Robert

Hi Robert,

For most telecommuting jobs you’re going to need a well functioning computer and a high speed internet connection. While this sounds straightforward, there’s actually a lot of little details that will need to be taken into consideration before you can apply or accept the position.

Let’s take a closer look.

Computer

With any telecommuting position you’ll want to check out the specific equipment requirements that they have. Usually this information can be found in the job posting itself.

While most companies allow you to work on a PC or a Mac, there are a few, mainly customer service and transcription jobs, that will require you to have a Windows operating system. (more…)

10 Ways to Turn Your Trash into Cash

10 Ways to Turn Your Trash into CashBy Holly Reisem Hanna

As a youngster, I was extremely money motivated. In fact, my friend and I would come up with new money making schemes all the time. Besides making and selling crafts, perfume, and lemonade, we would also dig through the nearby office park’s dumpers in search of soda cans. Most of the time we would collect the cans and trade in them for money, so we could buy candy from the store. But one summer we collected thousands of soda can tabs and traded them in for a one night stay at a hotel (don’t worry, my friend’s mom chaperoned us on our stay).

It’s really crazy how many ways you can make money, if you try.

If you’re looking to turn your garbage into cash — here are 10 ways to get started.

1. Aluminum Cans

This is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think about making money from your trash. In fact, “According to the Aluminum Association, Americans earn nearly $1 billion a year from recycling aluminum cans”. The national average is $0.50 per pound and it takes about 34 cans to equal a pound. While you’re not going to get rich from recycling your aluminum cans, it is an easy way to add some cash to your wallet while cleaning up your community.

Here’s 15 simple career strategies that will get you noticed and hired fast!

1. Add a Case Study

What really influences us is finding a case study included in a resume or online application. Those candidates understood that when you’re looking for remote work you’re dealing with a trust issue. It is something the e-commerce industry struggled with for years. Their solution was the before/after photo or the customer testimonial. When you talk about and show results, you show you’re trustworthy and that you really know what you’re doing.

9 Chat Agent Jobs You Can Do From Home

9 Chat Agent Jobs You Can Do From Home By Holly Reisem Hanna

Back when I was in college, I worked for a telemarketing company. While the gig itself was flexible with it’s hours and it paid well, it totally exhausted me. More often than not, people did not want to converse on the phone (which I totally get), so I would have to deal with their anger, irritation, and lots of hang ups. Over time I dreaded going in to work. After college, I worked for Medicaid doing prior authorization for nursing visits and home medical equipment. Again I was on the phone for long periods of time dealing with disgruntled providers — no fun!

While a lot of work at home jobs are phone-based, the Internet has opened up a new breed of customer service that does not require being on the phone. In fact, live customer service chat is becoming more and more popular everyday. Some of these chat positions do require background knowledge of a specific area, and many of them do require you to type a certain number of words per minute, so make sure you read all of the criteria before applying.

If you want to work from home as a chat agent, here are 9 companies to check out.
