Looking to Work from Home

I currently have a part time job, but am looking to pick up a job that I can do from home. I am not interested in the party world (Avon, Partylite, ect) where you book parties and show off goods. I don't mind the idea of having an actual interview, and having to submit to a background check.

I also don't want anything that has a big start-up cost (say more than $20) and definitely nothing that has a "monthly fee."

Is there anything? I've got a college degree (an associate's degree) and am a year away from my bachelor's degree. I have a TON of sales experience, as well as experience in the customer service field. Is there anything at which this would qualify?

  • You can search for jobs that match your skillset and have a telecommute or remote option. Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely? If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA).

    Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization; I also do career & job search coaching. I am always happy to help cafemoms (and dads) with resumes, cover letters, job search strategy & interview preparation. Feel free to contact me directly –Robin

  • I complete free offers and surveys on my own time and rack up some GOOD money! NEVER PAY ANY FEES and work when YOU want to.

  • If you visit you can go through the list there. Both of the businesses I do have monthly fees, I won't seriously work with a company that doesn't. I find them much less reliable and they come with less benefits without a fee...  But there are may businesses and home jobs listed on my site that could fit your needs. Good Luck!

  • I have a blog with a lot of free ideas and some ebooks about starting real businesses creatively. Not google adwordsLOL, but maybe with a hobby you're already doing, a pooperscooper business, a lawncare business, an organizing business, etc. You could find something that really interests you there. I also have free survey companies listed, get paid to write, etc. I update it frequently, so I'd subscribe if you're serious about finding something.
