5 Jobs You Can Do From Home

Last updated January 24, 2022

Here are 5 jobs you can do to earn some extra cash from the comfort of your own home!

Customer Service/Call-Center Representative

If you have a phone, a strong internet connection, and a quiet dedicated workspace, you can become an online customer service representative. Many businesses need workers who can answer phones, assist customers, process orders, and troubleshoot issues. Many customer service jobs are work-from-home.

Data Entry Clerk 

If you can type quickly and accurately and have access to a computer, data entry might be the job for you. Help companies stay up to date with their inventory, shipments, or customer account information by reviewing and entering data into a company’s database. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) the average median wage for entry level data clerks is $30,100 a year.

Language Interpreter/translator

Do you speak, read, and write in more than one language? Consider becoming an interpreter or translator. Use your skills to translate documents into another language or help healthcare workers and first responders communicate with their patients as a video or phone interpreter. The possibilities are endless and many entry level positions only require a high school diploma and provide on the job training, so no previous experience required. Learn more here about why knowing or learning a second language can benefit you in almost any career!

Tutor/Teacher

With schools moving to online learning due to the Omicron variant, now is a prime time to become an online tutor. Help students build their confidence and skills in a specific subject like english or math, or provide tips and tricks for preparing for the SAT or ACT. You can sign up with an online tutoring agency who will help you find people to tutor or you can reach out to your network and let them know you are open for business.

Be Your Own Boss

What are your favorite things to do when you have free time? Do you enjoy blogging, creating videos on TikTok, or designing websites? Or maybe you’re a sports fanatic. These are skills that people are willing to pay for to learn. Brainstorm ways you can turn your hobby into a business.

Additional Jobs you can do from home 

Virtual Assistant 

If you are good at following directions, are computer and phone savvy, consider becoming a virtual assistant. You can answer emails, schedule meetings, and complete data entry work for a small business owner.

Web Developer 

Building basic websites aren't as tricky as they used to be. If you are good at creating website templates on Wordpress, Squarespace or Wix, let people know how awesome you are and start promoting your services.
