6 Work From Home Jobs You Can Do Part-Time
LOS ANGELES, April 12, 2021 (Newswire.com) - Recent events have accelerated the trend towards remote jobs. As a result, there are now plenty of part-time, work from home jobs that allow you to earn some extra income on your own schedule.
To help you find the part-time role that's right for you, here is a list of some of the top work from home jobs you can do part-time.
Do you have an eye for grammar and spelling? Consider becoming a proofreader on the side.
Getting started as a part-time proofreader at home isn't too hard, as long as you have a mastery of written English (or whichever language you specialize in). You can head to freelance sites and job boards to find opportunities.
If you don't feel ready for that yet, consider editing and proofreading written pieces for family and friends. Doing so will help you build confidence and earn a bit of cash before venturing out for bigger roles.
If you'd like to step up from proofreading to creating, you could become a writer.
Writers have a wide range of work available to them in all sorts of niches. You could work on:
- Blog posts
- Sales copy
- Video scripts
- Technical content
And much more.
Like proofreading, you can get started writing on freelance websites or job boards. To maximize your success in landing work, write a few short samples ahead of time.
3. Customer Service Representative
Companies are always in need of friendly, efficient customer service representatives to help customers solve problems and keep customer satisfaction high.
Customer service jobs tend to be hourly, making this role fantastic if you'd like a steady second income. The pay itself is pretty good, with a median wage of $18 per hour.
Now, to succeed as a customer service representative, you'll need excellent customer service and problem-solving skills, as well as a reliable Internet connection. Thick skin may also be necessary for the occasional unhappy customer.
4. Virtual Tutor
With more online classes happening nowadays, the demand for virtual tutors is always increasing. If you're knowledgeable in a particular subject, then this could be the right gig for you.
Fortunately, you don't have to find clients on your own if you don't want to. Several websites exist that will connect you directly with students needing tutoring services.
Most of these sites let you work as much or as little as you want, and you can set your own schedule. That way, you can fit in your part-time tutoring alongside your normal day.
5. Website Tester
Businesses don't just need websites to survive — their websites have to be fast, clean, pretty, and intuitive to navigate. Otherwise, users will grow frustrated with the site and click off of it.
Consequently, many businesses pay website testers to play around on their sites and keep a lookout for any problems.
For example, the company might tell you to find their corporate office's address on their website. You'd see if you can find it, and either verbally or document your experience or write about it.
In many cases, you can work through a website testing agency as a tester, so the work comes to you.
6. Virtual Assistant
Virtual assistants, or VAs. are just that — they help their clients with various tasks remotely.
VAs are responsible for a wide range of activities. Some of them include:
- Manage appointments/scheduling
- Send emails
- Write blog posts
- Do data entry
- Book travel
- Perform market research
But that's only a small list of potential tasks. VAs essentially do any administrative work their client or employer needs. Some might only have you do one type of task extensively, whereas others might give you a little bit of everything.
There are plenty of VA jobs out there, but you can also freelance if you'd like more control over your income.
