Work from Home as a Telephone Research Interviewer

There are several companies that hire home-based telephone interviewers to conduct research surveys for many Fortune 500 companies. Your main role is being responsible for collecting data for clients. This is accomplished by contacting the person by phone, reading a pre-written script and accurately inputting the information into the system. If a phone job doing outbound calling (no sales) is what you are searching, then this may be the best career for you.
