Other Work From Home Opportunities

Medical Coder or Transcriptionist

 

Medical coding and transcription can’t always be performed at home, especially with strict privacy policies and guidelines. However, there are many companies that hire home-based workers with the skills and experience to provide both services. Keep in mind, however, that it’s very difficult for entry-level, inexperienced candidates to get hired to perform such work from home. This is by no means the “get-rich-quick” line of work that many mistakenly perceive it to be.

Medical coders and billers collaborate to ensure that healthcare providers are paid for their services. Coders analyze the documentation provided to assign diagnostic and procedural codes. This information must be properly recorded for the reimbursement process. Coders may also get involved in medical research and statistics in an effort to properly assign reimbursement codes. Medical billers prepare and submit claims to insurance companies or the government, primarily medicare, in order to obtain payment for services provided by a health-care professional.

Tech Support Provider

 

If you’re an experienced IT professional and you enjoy problem-solving and quality customer service, you may be able to work from home providing tech support via phone, online, and in-person to customers nationwide. As an independent contractor or employee (this varies per company), you’d work from your own home office, set your own hours, and service clients in your area.

Some of the companies to explore include:

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.

Telemarketing

 

Many companies and organizations outsource their cold-calling campaigns to third parties. Those third parties hire full time and temporary workers—many of whom work from home—to place those calls with specific goals in mind. You may be required to convince contacts to book an appointment, commit to making a donation, or agree to try a product or service. Your calls could also be focused on debt collection.

Typically you’ll receive an hourly base pay, plus performance-based commission. While some training is provided, applicants are expected to have some high quality customer-service and/or cold-calling experience. Among the companies to explore: www.intrep.com. You should also search online for home-based telemarketing positions on the big job boards and the major search engines. Do not pay for leads; you should be able to find employers that are hiring without paying a middleman for access to that information.

Translation

 

If you are a native speaker of a foreign language, then becoming a freelance translator could be a great opportunity. Several companies need documentation translated for international partners and hire freelance translators through companies like

welocalize
Language Translation INC
Telelanguage

Argos Multilingual
SDL

You should also explore the American Translators Association website: www.ATANet.org

Most companies require applicants to take a written test and sign a non-disclosure agreement. Precision and accuracy is a must. Companies who hire freelance translators prefer candidates who are native speakers of the target language; have experience with professional documents, software, or multimedia translations; and are members of a professional translation association. The most in-demand services include translation from English to Japanese, Spanish, French, German, Russian, and Italian.

This is another business you can start on your own if you have the skills and are able to network effectively to land a client. A major corporate client can keep you busy full time and smaller businesses would likely offer project work here and there.

Become a Caregiver

 

Care-giving services. Caregiving has become the second-fastest growing occupation, focused on non-medical care: companionship, errands, accompanying to doctor’s appointments, preparing meals, especially when a family member isn’t available to do this stuff.

Pay ranges from $8 to $15 an hour. Some opportunities are available as an employee with benefits and others are for independent contractors. Check with various companies in your area to determine their needs and your availability.

Among the resources to pursue for this type of work:

You can also search locally in your area for “senior companions” and post your availability on Craigslist and other sites. You’ll be able to earn slightly more per hour by finding a direct employer on your own.

Pet sitters. Maybe you don’t want to care for people, but you’d love to tend to their pets. The demand for sitters who can board pets in their home is extremely high so seniors can really increase their income and have lots of assignments through this avenue. They can also do private walks, daycare or visit cats and other small pets.

In addition to checking on these sites, you can also promote your availability yourself through flyers or business cards and even on Craigslist. You’ll hike your rates if you cut out the middleman, but it also means you’ll have to hustle to secure and maintain your own client database.

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.
