20 Legitimate Work From Home Jobs

work from home jobsAfter working remotely for the past three years, I must say it has been amazing and I don’t ever plan on going back to commuting.

Here’s the amazing benefits of being able to work remotely:

  • Pick your own schedule
  • Work from anywhere in the world
  • Save a ton of money
  • Work independently (no micromanagement)

There are way more benefits however, those are the perks that I enjoy most.

I know, it sounds too good to be true. Well, it’s not.

Before you continue reading, I want you to know that this is not going to be one of those annoying survey promoting blog post. I’m going to give you a list of real companies that I myself have worked for as well as companies that I’ve done an intensive amount of research on to prove that they’re legit and credible.

Online Tutoring 

If you’re a grammar freak and good at teaching, there are a plethora of online ESL programs that provide you with a great platform to teach foreign children how to speak English. These programs do not require a degree and they train you.

YiYi English

I personally have worked with YiYi English. They are very thorough on their hiring and training process to be sure that you’re providing the students with nothing but the best. You will have lesson plans laid out for you to follow. They literally set it up for you to be successful. The base pay is $10/hr but, you can easily jump up to $20/hr by keeping your rating above four stars. The commitment is 6 months to a year.

VIPKID

VIPKID’s platform is very similar to YiYi English however, the pay is slightly higher being that you’re pretty much marketing yourself to the parent. Base pay is $14/hr but you can earn up to $22/hr by keeping your rating above four stars.

QKids

I personally would label Qkids as one of the best ESL companies that you could possibly work for. Please keep in mind that your computer would need to pass a plethora of test in order to work for this company. Pay is $16-$20/hr.

Transcriber

Are you fast at typing, and good at listening? Then transcribing was made for you. There are many different types of transcription needs. A few examples would be, new’s platforms, study groups, interviews, etc. What you’d have to do is be a master on the key board. Want to spruce up your typing/spelling skills? Take this FREE course to brush up on your skills.

Focus Forward

I personally have worked with Focus Forward and I have no complaints. I love the staff, they keep constant open communication with you through email about work that’s available, and there’s always available work. They pay by weekly through PayPal so, you will need to set up an account. It is possible to make up to $10/hr and sometimes more depending on your typing speed.

Scribie

Scribie hires world wide and pays $10/hr through PayPal. If you complete three hours of audio in a month, you get a bonus $10.00. What I love about Scribie is that there’s no written in stone commitments. You work as much or less as you want.

Transcriptions ‘N’ Translations 

This company is based in Miami however, you can work from anywhere in the U.S. Transcriptions ‘N’ Translations transcribe for major companies like Animal Planet and Discovery Channel. You get to learn cool new things while working. How amazing is that. You have to be able to pass their skills test to work with them. To get started, you’ll need to submit your resume.

3Play Media

To be successful, you must pass a typing test of 75 WPM and be excellent at internet researching. 3Play Media provides typing jobs as well as editing. To be considered you have to pass a plethora of skills test. However, I am sure with the proper amount of practice, you can succeed. Pay depends on your typing speed but contractors earn anywhere from $10-$30/hr.

Virtual Assistant

If you have great organizational skills and are good with administrative task, You should definitely consider being a virtual assistant. One of the greatest aspects abut being a virtual assistant is that it’s virtual. You can do all of your work from anywhere in the world. This job title is so broad it can require almost anything.

    1. Of course, I’ve worked for BELAY Solutions and Fancy Hands. BELAY, required a lot of scheduling and occasionally social media management. Fancy Hands, required a lot of scheduling as well and calling third party businesses during their business hours. What I’ve noticed across the board with VA jobs, is that if you’re good with pulling information from search bars such as Bing, Google, Yahoo and so on, you should be a good fit!

  1. I have tried transcribing in the past. It was a tough job with the pedals and I could not quite learn how to type enough words per minute to make it worth while. Such a great resource for work from home jobs. Thank you for sharing.
