Twelve Places to Look for Telecommuting Work

Twelve Places to Look for Telecommuting Work


There are far too many places that hire work-at-home employees and contractors to list here, but these twelve places should get you started. Also, if you already have a job that you can envision becoming a work-from-home position, find a way to get your employer on board with letting you work from home. Ask to work from home a couple of days a week and be very productive on those days. Before you know it, you’ll be working from home.


West at Home – As a contracted call agent for West at Home, you’ll use your computer and your telephone to work for many well-known shopping channels and businesses taking in-bound calls and orders.


Teletech Jobs – Become an employee of this company and experience all the benefits of working for a company while working at home in the customer service arena.


Convergys – You can work at home as an at-home calling agent as an employee with full benefits, yet still avoid the dress code and other issues with working outside of the home.


Amazon – Even a large company like Amazon hires virtual employees all the time. You can see some of the current job listings here.


Kelly Services – You can search for work-from-home jobs with Kelly Services, a temporary employment agency. While many of these jobs will indeed be temporary, some may lead to full time.


Aetna – A leading insurance company sometimes offers various telecommuting positions. Go to their website to browse the openings.


Cyber Dictate –   A legitimate company that hires mostly legal transcribers, but they occasionally have an opening for general transcribers.

FlexJobs – There is a charge for these postings, but you can see some of the postings and then go to the actual websites to find the listed job.


NTI Central – Helps place Americans with disabilities in work-at-home jobs. Most jobs are customer service, but occasionally they have other things such as transcription, quality assurance and tech.


Rat Race Rebellion – This website has an ever-growing list of legitimate work-from-home jobs and gigs that you can apply to. Be sure to apply at your own risk, though. Many are totally legitimate but some aren’t.

Zirtual – This is a US-based virtual assistant company. You can apply for and get positions and contracts via their website. Some people love them and others hate them, but they are legitimate.


The most common position that can transfer to working from home are medical and health insurance agents and representatives, customer service agents, sales force, computer and IT, administrative (virtual assistants), graphic design, training, education, and marketing.
