There could be any number of reasons why you would want to work from home. Perhaps there are no financially beneficial jobs in your industry offering work in your area.

There are dozens of legitimate websites which will allow you to work from home as a transcriptionist. Sites like Transcribe Me and AccuTran Global are always looking for new hires. These sites usually pay by the audio hour, so the faster you can type the more money you can make.


Unlike CPAs or accountants, bookkeepers do not require a degree or certification. While accountants are responsible for setting up a company’s budget, filing taxes, and deciding overall financial direction, bookkeepers are more responsible for the day-to-day running of the business. The job can pay you anywhere from $20-50/hour.

Virtual Assistant

A virtual assistant helps people run certain business tasks remotely. Responsible for things such as answering emails and scheduling appointments, a virtual assistant can be a great work from home job.

Web developers are responsible for creating the look and usability of any website you view. With so much business being done over the internet today, web developers are in high demand. And the good news is that you can pick up most of the training on your own and don’t necessarily need technical training to get your foot in the door with web development.


Like web development, this career-path does not require formal training if you are able to provide the desired content. While it is helpful to have a degree in programming to get your foot in the door, anyone with a passion and ability to produce what a client is looking for is capable of making a great living working from home.
