  • A lot of work at home jobs are scams. I don't know of any that are really legit other than sales where you do parties (candles, housewares, etc.). Those require time you can devote on weekends and evenings I believe. If you have someone to help watch your child then that's a possibility, but your age might prove problematic.

  • Without any real job experience, it could be tought to find a legitimate work at home job.

    You can look for telecomuting jobs such as customer service jobs online. There are legitimate jobs, Good Morning America did a story on them a couple of years ago, but I can't remember the site, you might look there first. Just make sure the aren't scams because as QuinnMae said, many are.

  • You can also do medical transcription but often need to take the medical terminology course. Also, doesn't sound exciting but you can pet sit. There are also companies where you place ads on the internet. You can do this from home.

  • I know one of the legit companies that do Customer service at home is Sykes(at But they have set scheduled just like a real position so I do not know if that would work for you.

    beyond selling stuff(like avon etc, I do Jewelry sales) I don't know much else to offer you. Also you age is going to work against you.

  • Look into Origami Owl or Scentsy.

  • Depends on what you mean by "real" work. I fill out online surveys, and it provides a bit of extra cash, but it's definitely not enough to live on. It's just nice to have for holiday spending, that kind of thing, and I can d it while watching a movie or in between housekeeping and my other job and stuff. However, if you're not eighteen yet, you can't join a lot of those sites. Never, ever pay to join an online survey or e-mail-reading Web site, since there are plenty of free ones.

  • I agree with PartyGalAnne....Origami Owl and Scentsy seem to really be popular nowadays. And with your age being younger, you would have a great clientele, I bet. With your friends and their moms.
