9. Work Virtually for a Call Center
If you have a friendly voice and enjoy talking with other people, consider some remote work for a call center. The kind of work varies from working as an answering service for a local office (such as a doctor’s office) to making sales calls for a company (basically an updated version of telemarketing). Other responsibilities might include responding to customer calls and trying to fix their problems (not their emotional problems, their product-based issues).
Pay varies for this kind of work. If you’re working as a sales representative, you may only get paid on commission. If you are working as an after-hours on-call service for a local doctor’s office, you will probably work weekly. You will need a computer with individual specs, a fast internet connection, and reliable phone service.
