Daytime Work-at-Home Options

Posted: Updated:
 Employment expert Doug Arms says searching for jobs you can do from home used to be a matter of scanning the Sunday classifieds for offers to get rich quick by stuffing envelopes.

Now, exposure to at-home employment opportunities has exploded, and a wide range of job ads are just a mouse click away. But so are the scams.

In 2007, when The Rat Race Rebellion began tracking at-home jobs, there were 30 scams for every legitimate opportunity. Now, with 4,500 to 5,000 work-at-home job ads screened weekly, the website finds 60 phonies for every one that's for real, says Christine Durst, co-founder and principal of Staffcentrix LLC, the company that owns and manages RatRaceRebellion.com.

Durst, whose company Staffcentrix develops home-based and virtual career training programs, says people interested in work-at-home jobs primarily are:

*          Parents who say they want to spend more time with their children.

*          Trailing military spouses who, according to Durst, by virtue of their spouse's career need to pick up and move every few years.

*          Retirees needing supplemental income.

*          People with disabilities.

Here are some options:

 
  1. Virtual assistant.
  2. Medical transcriptionist.
  3. Translator.
  4. Web developer/designer.
  5. Call center representative.
  6. Tech support specialist.
  7. Travel agent.
  8. Teacher.
  9. Writer/editor.
  10. Franchise owner.
