Other Work From Home Opportunities

Audio to Text Transcriptionist

Speeches, lectures, television and radio programs, and interviews must be converted to text that’s delivered timely and accurate. If you possess exceptional English language and grammar skills and you’re an experienced typist with a speed of at least 75 wpm, you could transcribe audio to text.

Some businesses may require you to take a transcription test before offering you opportunities to work. Most assignments are handled on a freelance basis.

Here are some sites to explore. You can find others by searching online.

You must use caution when visiting these sites. Even though they contain a lot of legitimate information, they also lead to links to stuff that’s not legit. Be cautious about the sites and the ads you see and NEVER respond to check-cashing, wire transfer or Western Union related offers.

Concierge

 

Do you think you have what it takes to handle phone, e-mail, and online customer inquiries for services that range from making dinner suggestions and reservations to planning a vacation for busy professionals? What if the caller asked you to locate the dress Julia Roberts wore in “Ocean’s Eleven,” rent monkeys for a birthday party, or help write a speech for a best man?

Those are some of the common and quirky requests asked of home-based concierge agents at Aspire Lifestyles, one of the leading services. Aspire Lifestyles’ clients are executives and employees of some of the top companies in the world, all of whom are willing to pay for such services of convenience. Aspire Lifestyles hires home-based agents who are highly resourceful and have prior experience in high-end customer service, travel and/or hospitality. Apply online at www.aspirelifestyles.com as well as www.assistU.com.

Because concierge services are growing in popularity as a benefit for businesses of all sizes, consider starting your own service. Contact employers in your area about offering services of convenience to their staffers. For example, a doctor’s office might require its staff to work long hours to accommodate patient needs. Employee absenteeism can cause a disruption or slow down in services. It may be more beneficial for the medical practice to pay an outsider like you to handle errands and special chores for a nurse than to give that nurse a day off. This same theory applies to companies where staffers work long hours or are required to travel regularly. So use this approach when pitching your services.

Nurses on Call

Registered nurses who don’t want to work in traditional hospital settings or doctors’ offices—or who want to supplement their income–can put their knowledge to work at home. Several companies, such as www.fonemed.com and www.mckesson.com, hire nurses to provide phone-based triage and advice to callers requesting information on medical conditions and reactions to medication. Home-based nurses can also provide sound advice to patients on disease management and health care options so they’re armed with information to make the best decisions about their care.

You can also check with a medical center in your area to ask if they hire or contract with home-based nurses to provide similar triage and advice phone services.

Home-based Recruiting

 

Recruit From Home

Many service-oriented businesses are allowing professionals to work virtually. This is certainly true in the field of recruiting. Some of the opportunities are commission-only: You must recruit a candidate who is hired by an employer in order to receive any money. Others offer a base salary, plus commission.

Go to the big job boards—Careerbuilder.com, Monster.com—and search using the key words “virtual recruiter” or “home-based recruiter.” You’ll see many openings to which you can apply.

The other option is to search on Google or Yahoo for contingency search firms and/or placement agencies. Cold-call them to ask whether they hire home-based recruiters or impress them with your phone skills so that they decide to make you their first virtual recruiter.

To be successful, you must be a super-savvy networker and possess knowledge of recruitment tactics. Oftentimes, some training will be provided if you can prove that you’re a highly networked, resourceful professional.

You can also contact headhunters, placement agencies, and recruiting firms to ask if they hire home-based recruiters, since there are thousands of such companies-big and small-some don’t advertise their needs. They hire through word of mouth. If you have a track record of success, you might be able to convince someone to give you a shot.

You must use caution when visiting these sites. Even though they contain a lot of legitimate information, they also lead to links to stuff that’s not legit. Be cautious about the sites and the ads you see and NEVER respond to check-cashing, wire transfer or Western Union related offers.
