If you are self-motivated and consider yourself a go-getter, a work from home career may be a great option for you. Work from home jobs have become extremely popular.
If you’re a beginner, your best option is to sign up with transcription job sites like Rev and Scribie to find paying jobs that you can do on a contractor basis. You can also offer your services on Fiverr or reach out to companies and entrepreneurs to pitch them your services.
2. Medical coder
Medical coding is a popular work-from-home career field. Remote medical coders review patients’ records and services for the correct diagnosis and procedure codes so the provider can bill the patient and insurance companies for the correct amount.
3. Virtual nurse/telemedicine
If you have a nursing degree, you can work as a virtual nurse helping people over the phone or via the internet. Virtual nurses use the internet to monitor vital signs, connect with virtual command centers to communicate with doctors, advise patients online, and perform other similar duties.
4. Call center agent
You may have to handle incoming calls or make outgoing calls, depending on the nature of the job. Some companies that hire work-from-home agents prefer some call center experience, but most will offer training so don’t worry if you’ve never done this work before.
5. Camp counselor
Although typically an outdoor, in-person job, there are some remote camp counselor jobs, particularly for STEM-based camps. You’ll work with campers teaching them coding, performing science experiments, digital art, and more.
6. Test proctor
Similar to an in-person proctor, a remote test proctor will verify a test taker’s ID and monitor them throughout the exam to ensure that they don’t cheat and maintain the integrity of the exam. This is typically done via a webcam, so it’s important that you have good internet connection and a quality camera and microphone.
7. Data entry clerk
Data entry is a flexible entry-level work-from-home job. Companies may hire you to input data to a software system, transfer information, and update records.
