        Hello, any legitimate chat/email jobs out there that are hiring for work at home agent in India?

        1. Chris K.

          Just a heads up – although out OutPlex is a well-established company and seems like a good choice, unfortunately in their job descriptions they do require chat AND phone. so if someone isn’t comfortable talking on the phone, or they are only looking for work from home email or chat position, this may not be the right choice since you will probably be required at some point to speak to customers over the phone.

      5. Jeremy

        Most of these are Work at Home Jobs for US based perssonnel, but what if we live in Canada? It would be nice to have a blog post regarding online jobs that accept people from other places as well. Thanks for the info though..

      27. Jennifer Reyes

        Hi Lashay, I’m currently a stay at home mom of five. This has been my gig for almost 11yrs now, I love my kids but I am ready to make my own money for multiple reasons…it was my husbands idea that I stay home but now it’s constantly thrown in my face that I don’t contribute to anything because I don’t work and I’m tired of asking for my allowance…another reason is, I will soon be a single mother of five kids and need to be able to make it on my own. My youngest starts kindergarten this fall as I would love to have as much time with the next few months as I did with her brothers and sister. (before she goes to kindergarten and I blink and she’s a snotty 14yr old that thinks I’m the dumbest person to walk the planet lol) I would love to do some kind of data entry, inbound customer service, or virtual assistant job but I’m willing to do anything at this point!

        1. Kristina Galeana

          Jennifer, I’m sorta in the same boat as you. I was wondering if you had any success finding work from home????

      28. Bridget Smith

        Greetings Lashay

        Im new to this work from home community. Im pretty bored with much of the office politics and working amongst people. I would like to give home based work a shot and see if working in solitude would be better for me. I have only one concern about these work from home jobs. That is the one of taxes. Most of these jobs require that you pay your own taxes… Do you have any information on this?

      31. Jenifer Pastorfide

      33. Diamond

        Hi Lashay. I am a recent college graduate seeking a job to work from home. I do not have a car so transportation is hard. I currently have student loans to pay starting next month and I help my grandmother out with babysitting during the day. So I need a job that doesn’t require a phone because of the background noise. I also would like something that pays well to afford my monthly payments and save for a car. Please help me! Thank You 🙂

      34. Jackie G.

        Hi Lashay. I’m a stay at home mom as well. My family has recently hit some hard times and with the high cost of child care, I still have no option but to stay home. I have applied for some captioning and transcribing jobs, as well as a call center job but to no avail. Is there any help you can give me? It would be greatly appreciated to at least have a step in the right direction. I’m a great typist, with great communication skills. I cannot take a job on the phone as I have 2 toddlers around most of the day, (one is in pre-k for 3 hrs a day). Again, any help would be greatly appreciated.

        1. Lashay H.

          Hi Jackie! Thanks for stopping by. With your typing background I suggest companies such as Rev, Transcribe Me, Scribie, and Dion DATA Solutions.

          1. Jackie G.

            Thanks Lashay! I was not accepted at Rev, but I will definitely look into the others and give them a try.

      55. Lily

        Hi I just subscribed to this site and I wondered if anyone here knows what tab to click on at the Apples website in order to apply for a job there. I sometimes find it difficult to see where on any or these work from home websites have a tab to click on in order to apply. Many are easy to find but some make it difficult.

        1. Lashay H.

          Hey Lily! It seems they they have changed the look of their site. When you click on the link above, scroll down the page until you see “Apply in your location”. Then you will land on the careers page, scroll down and find the “At Home Advisor” listing by location. Let me know if you are still having trouble.

I have a child that needs more than I can afford on my monthly income. I was looking for a non phone job for that reason, so that I can keep an eye on him plus get my work done. I have been looking everywhere, I want to make money from home. Can anyone help me????

      57. JonthueM

        Do they require some experience or does it vary?

        1. Lashay H.

          It really depends on the company. For example Talk 2 Rep requires you to type a minimum of 60 wpm with chat experience. When you click on the company name, most of them will specify any requirements that you to have.

        2. Lashay H.

          For most, at least some type of chat or customer service experience.

      58. karen

        Hi Lashay, Currently working from home as a Brand Ambassador, looking for something a little different. Something along the lines of a chat customer service rep would be great. Any ideas on what a good company to do this with? Any advise would be appreciated.

          Hi Karen! I have heard many good things about Apple and Talk 2 Rep. The great thing about Apple is they actually provide you with a MACbook to the work. Also both companies have offers employee benefits!
