10 Best Work-At-Home Jobs for the Job Hunters

You're looking for a job, and you’re working on a limited budget. You're too embarrassed to ask your parents one more time. Your friends are avoiding you on this matter (or so you think). The sun is not going down on you. Yet. If you still have that can-do mindset, which has helped you beat the deadline to your college essays, then you won't have to cry for despair. If you're a passionate individual, then you can channel it to somewhere else. Think of a work-at-home job.

You might be tempted to arrange and decorate your room after you have heard your ex-colleagues talk about Airbnb. You won't mind sleeping in the basement (or attic) until you realize that you haven't talked to your folks about it. You could be earning a grand per month on an average, which is not bad at all. It could be a hassle, though. (Your old man prefers his small circle of friends.) This should make you think of other options. It won't be difficult as you think, even if any job has its share of challenges. You must overcome the bumps that an employee encounters during the first few months. A work-at-home job doesn't guarantee anything, though. Are you up to it?

Why this Job is Perfect for You

Petsitting. The waiting game could make you impatient at times, if not insecure about your friend's career update on social media. Cuddling should keep you out of the blues, and nothing would be better than having someone's pet dog besides you. This four-legged furball could be energetic at times, which should leave you exhausted. You may wonder why you have signed up here in the first place until you've been reminded of your predicament.

Cleaning. Your roommate was impressed at how you find time to clean your side of the room. You won't mind if you're being suspected of having an obsessive-compulsive disorder, even it would be the farthest. You could put your so-called skill to good use, as you would ask anyone in the neighborhood if there's a garage (or a backyard) to clean. It should bring you back to your younger days. This could take you out of the house, but you're not going too far.

Gardening (or doing something on your neighbor’s garden). You're about to curse technology for a lawnmower that doesn't need any human assistance until you notice your neighbor's garden. Is it not tidy enough? Does it need a human touch? Don't be shy of going over there (and ask the question). There may be a chance that your neighbor could be offended, but you have been polite. You're also willing to do anything for a little earning.

Delivery. Food delivery on a bike is becoming the norm in the place where you used to work. You could do it, even a bit faster. Can you handle the rush hour? Can you summon your adrenaline rush? Do you still have a presence of mind during tight situations? If you can give an affirmative response to the questions, then do an online research. Ask your neighbors. This won’t take you long outside.

Writer. You have learned the art of time management, such that you have plenty of time for proofreading during the latter days of your college life. You can try on writing tasks, but you don't know where to find one. Start with your local publication.

Online teacher. Someone from a remote location wants to be proficient in the English language in the shortest time. You could be the one, as you have a firm grasp of the grammar. You have read too many books (or so you claim). You want to meet different people from different parts of the world. You're in the right place.

Virtual tutor. Someone needs guidance on English lessons. It could be a corporate matter, if not someone who doesn't want to get lost during a holiday in an English-speaking country. You could do better by giving recommendations on certain places in your area.

Background investigator. Networking is a prerequisite to this work-at-home job, as a former client could recommend you to a certain firm. You should do research, also interview people. It doesn't necessarily mean that you would be part of a team on national security. It might be connected to your old school. This could lead to something else. You won't have to wait long.

Survey taker. You were an opinionated student, which your coursemates couldn't handle at times. This job may put it to good use (for once).

Virtual assistant. You've become an expert in multitasking, which your mother have noticed right away. She wondered if you could make a money from it. This would keep you occupied until you find the job that you've been wishing for.

How to Solve a Dilemma

You don’t have to worry if you can (or cannot) include this work-at-home job(s) in your resume. You’ll cross that bridge when you see another opening.

You don’t have to be anxious about the possibility of doing work-at-home tasks for months, if not a few years. You must assess your career options after having been in that work-at-home job for a few months. Six months and one year must be marked as well.

You don’t need to have trepidation of the people you could be working with. You might bump into an old colleague, which might help you. Keep your fingers crossed if it’s a new one. There may be a golden opportunity.
