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. (more…)

Why Earning Money Trumps Saving Money

Why Earning Money Trumps Saving MoneyBy Emily Belcher

Have you ever thought that saving money could be a waste of time? That question may sound ridiculous at first but I can confirm that there are times when too much time is spent by cutting costs. Simply put, you can’t save money if you don’t have any to begin with.

Take extreme couponing, for example. After I had my son, I desperately wanted to stay at home with him. However, I went back to my nursing job part-time. I knew that my part-time employment was not going to make ends meet financially so I decided to give coupons a try.

I watched a few episodes of TLC’s Extreme Couponing. Okay… Maybe I watched a whole season of the addicting reality show. I remember a few of the women claiming that they were able to quit their full-time jobs because of their couponing. One even claimed that couponing enabled her to purchase a brand new SUV. As great as it sounds, it just isn’t possible. (more…)

10 Ways to Search Job Sites for Work From Home Jobs

More and more of us are feeling the need to work from home these days, whether it’s because of a busy home or family life, a need for a more flexible schedule, or a plain old resistance to going into the office! Whatever your reasons are, working from home can be a wonderful alternative to the daily grind.  However, finding work from home jobs can be a little tricky sometimes. When I search online for “work from home” jobs, the results I find are often spam or scams. Instead, I find it works much better to search for specific types of jobs.   Here are some job searches you can try to find legitimate work from home jobs and a little information about the results of each one.  Virtual Jobs Searching “virtual jobs” is a great idea because it will bring up jobs that require you to be available virtually (i.e. from home) instead of in person. This can include all kinds of things, ranging from virtual assistant work (taking care of administrative duties online, from sending emails to tracking finances, etc.) to running errands or doing virtual chores.  Telecommuting Jobs This term is basically interchangeable with virtual jobs, except that it may require you to be available for more video calls and conferences. It implies that there is a remote office to which you are “telecommuting,” so the hours might be more concrete than a virtual job. Thus, this search is more for women who are seeking full-time or steady work from home employment.  Freelancing Jobs Freelancing just means working as an independent contractor so these jobs could be anything from freelance movie production to freelance writing. I like to peruse these listings because you can undertake many different kinds of freelance jobs, so my work has the possibility of fitting my mood for the week.   Remote Jobs This search will bring up all jobs that don’t require you to work from a specific place. However, it’s likely to pull up a lot of unpaid work or internships, as well as commission jobs, so make sure you understand the terms of the job before you contact anyone.  Blogging Jobs Blogging jobs are great because they can almost always be done from home and can be fun! Larger blogging sites tend to employ paid bloggers to keep their sites updated regularly. You can often write on different topics that you’re qualified for and get creative with your work.      The following jobs are more specific than searching simply for “work from home” jobs, but they will often offer work from home opportunities. Read the fine print of these job descriptions to understand exactly what they require.  Outside Sales Associate Jobs These job postings are usually looking for someone willing to work off-site, whether it’s online or at a different location, to help companies and businesses with product sales. If you like interacting with people and are a good saleswoman, jobs like this can be fun and lucrative!  Editing Jobs Often, publications, organizations or authors need outside editors to help them fine-tune writing for a website, article, books, etc. Outside editors can work from home and generally make their own schedules as long as they are willing to make deadlines. Of course, you’ll need to have stellar grammar skills to make this kind of work from home opportunity work for you.  Design Jobs Design jobs are usually jobs for graphic designers, who sometimes have the ability to work as freelancers. Work from home design jobs may include doing things like designing ads, banners, websites or other promotional tools. If you have the right software to design from home, try your hand (or mouse) at freelance designing.   Resume Writing Jobs This search will pull up either companies who outsource resume writers or individuals who need help with their resume. As a resume writer, all you have to do assess the skills of a particular individual and create a resume based off of those skills. You’ll likely even learn how to develop a better resume for yourself.  Online Teaching Jobs Online courses are becoming more and more popular and the need for online teachers is growing! Qualified teachers can teach anything from test prep courses to guitar lessons to university level academics. This kind of work from home job often requires use of a webcam, so make sure you have a good one before applying.    I hope this post helps you find the kind of work from home job you’ve been dreaming of! Good luck with your job search!
