Businesses love a translator in a virtual office because it widens the employment pool for them. You should love working as a translator in a virtual office because it has the potential to provide a great income; translators working in technical and scientific areas can earn more than $100,000 per year.
5. Web Developer
A large segment of the work-at-home population is composed of web developers and web designers. This works because a web designer has pretty much everything he needs right on his computer, at his fingertips. The amount of interaction with co-workers and even clients is pretty limited.
6. Technical Support
Many call centers use work-from-home employees to field tech support calls from customers. This probably isn’t a great choice for someone who has kids at home, though, since you need to be able to take calls whenever they come in and handle them without interruption.
7. Customer Service Representative
When you call in to place an order from a catalog, your call often goes to work-at-home employees. Zaplee’s cloud call services are perfect for this situation, because that main toll free number that you call can be routed to any number of at-home employees for handling.
You may be surprised to see a teacher on a virtual careers list, but the move toward online learning is growing. Not only can you teach online college courses, but there are an increasing number of cyber schools for elementary through high school students. Teaching cyber-school is a great virtual office opportunity.
9. Registered Nurse
The field of tele-health is booming. Registered nurses can work from home doing telephone triage and giving advice to patients. This is a great choice for older employees who don’t want to work on their feet all day or retirees who want to keep earning an income.
If you thought it was just a hobby, think again. Work from home at your own pace creating your art, and post it on Etsy for sale. This is a great way to launch a business because there is next to no start-up cost involved. You can try out the business and measure your success without paying for a storefront or other overhead.
