36 Best Work From Home Jobs for 2020-2021

Work from home jobs have become extremely popular.



115% more popular according to a recent study by FlexJobs and Global Workplace Analytics.

As such, it’s no surprise that the 1.8 million Americans that left their jobs between 2005 and 2017 cited greater flexibility, increased happiness, and better pay as primary factors in their decision to ditch the traditional 9-to-5 grind and work from home.

If you are self-motivated and consider yourself a go-getter, a work-from-home career may be a great option for you.

From customer service reps and social media managers to travel agents and transcriptionists, work-from-home jobs provide the opportunity to earn a living from anywhere.

Work from Home as an Employee

One of the easiest ways to get started working from home is to work for someone else, and there are a number of real careers you can consider.

1. Online teacher

Potential earnings: $30,000 to $40,000 per year

Schools and other educational institutions are beginning to realize the importance and role of online education. Whether you’re a licensed teacher or not, you can earn an income teaching classes online.

Demand is growing for online education solutions as a supplement to in-class schooling or, in some cases, a replacement altogether. Subjects in the highest demand are English, science, and math. Classes are usually taught via Skype, Zoom, or pre-recorded sessions.

K12 is one option for teaching online. One perk to working for them is that your job will likely include benefits like health insurance, retirement savings accounts, and paid time off. Since you’ll be working with kids, you still need to go through the typical hiring process for a teacher: background check, reference check, interviews, etc.

If you want to supplement your teaching income or you’re not a licensed teacher, you can create courses on platforms like Outschool. With these courses, you have more flexibility in your rates, your hours, and what subjects you teach.

2. Online tutor

Potential earnings: $14 to $22 per hour

If you’d prefer a more flexible teaching job, consider tutoring through Education First or VIPKid. The service is incredibly flexible. You get to set your own hours, and there’s no lesson planning involved. They provide the lesson materials and communicate with the parents; all you need is a laptop and a desire to help teach children.

3. Transcriptionist

Potential earnings: $15 to $30 per hour, depending on experience

Transcriptionists take audio and video content and turn it into written text. It sounds simple enough, but this work requires a certain level of skill. You’ll need to know how to type efficiently and accurately. Some transcriptionists even use special equipment like a foot pedal to start and stop audio recordings.

Still, there are so many unique opportunities to land remote transcription work. If you’re a beginner, your best option is to sign up with transcription job sites like Rev and Scribie to find paying jobs that you can do on a contractor basis. You can also offer your services on Fiverr or reach out to companies and entrepreneurs to pitch them your services. For example, if you like a specific podcast, see if they need someone to transcribe episodes.

4. Medical coder

Potential earnings: $60,000 per year

Medical coding is a popular work-from-home career field. Remote medical coders review patients’ records and services for the correct diagnosis and procedure codes so the provider can bill the patient and insurance companies for the correct amount.

You will need some training for this job, which you can find through in-person courses or an online program. Having some training or certification can help you land an entry-level role. Some companies hire remote medical coders on a contract basis or even as a part- or full-time employee.

5. Virtual nurse/telemedicine

Potential earnings: approximately $61,000 per year

If you have a nursing degree, you can work as a virtual nurse helping people over the phone or via the internet. Virtual nurses use the internet to monitor vital signs, connect with virtual command centers to communicate with doctors, advise patients online, and perform other similar duties.

You can find these jobs at hospitals and health centers and apply just like you would for a traditional nursing job.

6. Call center agent

Potential earnings: $30,000 to $40,000 per year

Remote center agents do everything they would in a traditional call center: sales, telemarketing, customer service, and customer support.

You may have to handle incoming calls or make outgoing calls, depending on the nature of the job. Some companies that hire work-from-home agents prefer some call center experience, but most will offer training so don’t worry if you’ve never done this work before.

You can work either full- or part-time in this role.

7. Customer service representative

Potential earnings: $28,000 per year

If you know you want to work from home but have no idea where to start, customer service can be a good choice. Most companies need customer service representatives to field customer questions, concerns, and complaints, and a lot of them, such as Apple, American Express, and U-Haul, hire remote employees to perform this role.

Training is usually provided, and you’ll receive a set schedule. However, your schedule can rotate, especially if it’s a 24-hour business. Similar to call center agents, you can work either full- or part-time as a customer service representative.

8. Amazon remote employee

Potential earnings: anywhere from $10 per hour to $50,000 per year depending on the job and experience

It’s possible to make money with Amazon in a number of ways, including work-from-home positions ranging from customer service agents and technical support to data entry, all the way to supply chain managers.

Job responsibilities vary according to the position you’re applying to, so you’ll have to carefully and thoroughly read the job listing to get an accurate picture of what’s required. You can find open listings by visiting their Virtual Locations jobs page.

Positions can be hourly, part-time, or full-time.

9. Search engine evaluator

Potential earnings: $37,00 per year

If you’re looking for a legitimate, non-phone based remote job, consider looking for work as a search engine evaluator. In this position, you’ll spend your time evaluating results for search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing to help improve the overall user experience.

Web research skills, analytical abilities, and excellent communication are important for this position. Note that you typically need to pass an exam before you start working as an evaluator.

The hours are pretty flexible, but you can expect to work around 35 hours per week.
