Top 10 Work at Home Jobs for 2015

If you’re looking for a job with flexible hours or you’re a stay-at-home parent thinking about going back to work, there’s a solution for you: a work at home job. Check out this list of the top 10 work at home jobs that allow you to earn money and clean the house at the same time!

1. Web Therapists

Yes, it’s a real profession, and no, do not channel your inner Dr. Fiona Wallice, Lisa Kudrow’s character on the hit web-to-TV show Web Therapy. If you’re a qualified therapist, you could start your own online business on Skype, or provide your services on websites like BlahTherapy. A growing (and somewhat unconventional) job market, online therapists can earn $62,000 per year.

2. Graphic Designers

Graphic design might be a competitive field, but it can be quite rewarding, especially when you can earn up to $21 an hour. Individuals and organizations alike have acknowledged the importance of the various forms of design (graphic, product, web), and have come to rely on creative minds like you in the Era of Design.

3. Translators

If you’re fluent in at least two languages, translating should be your next career move. And you could do so in the comfort of your own home for up to $43,000 a year. Even if you have a full-time job, you can opt to do some freelance translating over at Translators Base.

4. Medical Transcriptionists

If you know what otorhinolaryngology is, then a career as a medical transcriptionist is probably just right up your alley. A firm grasp of medical terminology is really all you need to start earning up to $19.76 an hour.

5. Phone Sex Operators

This one is definitely not for prudes or the faint-hearted. You won’t actually be doing anything, don’t worry! You’ll just have to listen to your callers and throw in a “spank me” every so often, and unlike porn actors you get to keep anonymity. Although it could be a little demeaning and rather awkward (imagine explaining to your boyfriend’s parents what you do for a living, who you just happen to have met for the first time), full-time phone sex operators can earn anything up to $60 an hour, according to this first-hand (and very graphic) account.

6. Market Researchers

In 2012, the median pay for market research analysts was $60,300 per year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Occupational Outlook Handbook, which projects a 32% employment growth in the field by 2022.

7. Writers

If you’re passionate about writing, you might love these four words: get paid to write. You can make $55,000 a year, on average, just for writing articles, guides, e-books, product descriptions, and anything else you can think of.

8. Virtual Office Assistants

Virtual office assistants earn an average $34,000 per month, and perform the same tasks as that of a secretary, including handling correspondence, scheduling meetings, and making travel arrangements, without having to change out of your favorite hoodie and into something a bit more formal.

9. Call Center Representatives

Surprisingly enough, you do not need to be in an actual call center to be a call center representative. You can earn an average $24,000 per year working on your own hours, and don’t necessarily need any qualifications.

10. Online Reseller

Sell other people’s stuff online who either don’t have the time or the know-how to do it themselves. Simply research the item’s value, list it on websites like eBay and charge your customers a little commission (this can be a flat fee or a percentage).
