Ten Jobs Where You Can Make Money Without Leaving Home
We all have the dream of waking up in a villa on the Mediterranean without having to leave for work or a care in the world. If you can master one of these trades that allow you to work from home you can be half way there. A few jobs don’t require more than a high school education that can earn up to $15/hour on average as a virtual assistant. If you have computer skills you can earn $33 an hour on average.
See what kind of skills you need to earn extra cash while working from home.
To assemble our list of top work-at-home jobs, we combed through employment data to identify occupations with good hourly wages and promising growth prospects. We then researched actual companies that hire home-based workers as well as career Web sites that strive to post legit work-at-home job openings.
To weed out scammers, we checked out companies with the Better Business Bureau and other professional associations. While we can’t guarantee that you’ll get hired for one of these work-from-home jobs, at least you can have confidence that none of these employment opportunities is too good to be true.
The people at Kiplinger did their due diligence to make sure that these options are legit and provide websites that actually post positions where you can earn money. Some of the jobs require some training and experience like a medical transcriptionist or a web content writer. If you invest your time in training or working for free (for a writing job) you can eventually earn more money as you gain experience.
Decide what training you might need to earn extra income.
