In this era of modern technology, almost everything is powered by the internet. With the use of search engines, it is very easy to look for things that we want to know about. Nowadays, using books and encyclopedias to do research is often times looked at as ‘old school’, where most people turn to the internet for answers. With just a few clicks and taps, you can find the answer to just about anything.
Nowadays, the new ‘work trend’ is working at home. There are several jobs offered that can be done at home or even on a tropical island, all you need is a laptop with an internet connection. Truth be told, a lot of the days I’m sitting in my pajamas on my couch working while managing my businesses. Whether you decide to build your own business from home or work for someone else, the opportunities are endless.

Below are the list of jobs you can start today:
All companies need an assistant and many businesses are looking to virtual assistants to help with their day to day needs. The work of an assistant is to schedule meetings, manage calendars, reply to emails and manage customer service. Companies hire a self-employed virtual assistant to do the same tasks as the assistant in the office would do.
Sometimes they can also be in charge of managing the social media accounts of their employers, entering data, organizing the companies books and doing other tasks crucial to the daily operations of a company.
This job is perfect for teachers or people with a skill who do not want to spend hours standing in front of students. A typical teacher spends most of his/her time at school, whereas an online teacher can spend only 4 hours per session. Instead of standing in front of the students in a classroom, with the white board and books, the teachers teach their subjects through Skype or prerecorded sessions. Today, there is a growing demand of online teachers for all subjects.
Freelancers are a broad topic because of the wide array of jobs/tasks that you can perform. Being a freelancer just means that you do work for people on a project to project basis instead of being employed on a long-term basis. Some of the most sought after freelancer services include design, development, writing, recording and even marketing. If you have the knowledge or talent in any on-demand service, sign up for UpWork or another freelance website and start bidding for jobs.
A transcriptionist’s job is to listen to audio files and transcribe that audio into a written file. It is considered as one of the easiest work-at-home jobs available. Most companies who hire a transcriptionist do not require experience from their employees. The file that needs to be transcribed can vary from a college lecture to a doctor’s medical dictation. A hired transcriptionist only needs a working computer to do this job. The employee should also have keen listening skills with attention to detail and the ability to re-write the sentences with proper grammar.
A really cool work from home opportunity I came across was creating your own travel agency or working as a travel agent for another agency. When I was booking tickets for my next trip, I came to find out that the agent helping me ran her entire business from home. As a travel agent, you just have to market your services and then you book/plan out trips for people who are too busy to do it themselves.
Online tutors are often a great working option for people who are looking for an additional source of income by using their extra time to tutor students. These students usually need an extra help with a certain subject and the tutor’s job requires them to help the student get a better grasp on that topic. Tutoring sessions can be as short as 30 minutes or last as long as 3 hours and you can be working with people from the elementary level all the way up to the collegiate level.
Customer Service Representatives
Companies hire workers who can speak English fluently and have a strong speaking ability. Customer service representatives or CSR’s are in high demand and their job is to help customers with pre-purchase questions or post-purchase disputes. CSR jobs are often offered in a full-time position and offered with benefits. To give you perspective, I recently hired a Customer Service rep full-time for one of my businesses.
In conclusion, working at home has its pros or cons. Some people thrive by working at home while other people find it extremely tough.
