  • yes, liveops, alpine access, and west at home. these are all call center jobs and require no background noise, a landline, and high speed internet connection. I worked for liveops briefly and hated it, so good luck!

  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely?
    You can search for jobs that match you skill set and have a telecommute option.
    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). For more information, go to,, ..
    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 (along with medical billing), I also do career and job search coaching.

  • Check the local job boards for telecommuting jobs. However, be forewarned, legit work at home jobs are very rare.
