Not all types of jobs are suited to a working from home environment but with the world seeming smaller and smaller thanks to improving technologies, working from home is easier and more achievable than ever.

Here are the most popular jobs that are very achievable from a home environment:

1)    Graphic and Web Design

If you’re a skilled graphic or web designer tired of completing work under some body else’s name, working for home can be a fantastic option. Because you don’t have to pay for an office space, receptionist and staff expenses, you can give your clients personalised services at a cheaper rate than a major firm. If you don’t want to work for yourself, there are numerous freelance designing opportunities, so you can have the safety of working for a company without ever having to step foot in an office.

 2)    Writing

Writing is one of the most common ways of working from home. Whether it’s writing for one company or freelancing for a range of companies, writing is a great way to earn income from home.

The Internet has created more writing jobs than ever with blogs, eBooks, websites and newsletters needing to be written on a huge range of topics. Freelancing allows you great flexibility so you can choose whom you want to work for and find variety in various opportunities.

3)    Sales

Telemarketing, Internet sales and online stores have created a variety of ways you can use your sales skills from home to earn an income.

There are many online stores who use blogs and social networking to get their name out there and run a shop from home on their own or with minimal assistance.

You can also find sales positions that work on a freelance basis. They occasionally require you to visit stores but, other than that, you can do everything from the comfort of your own home.

4)    Teaching and Tutoring

Everything from tutoring high school students to teaching piano to second language tutoring can be run from home through a company or by having your students come to your home.

With advancements online, the option of tutoring from home to someone in a remote location is very plausible and something which is sure to become more and more common in time.

5)    Transcription

Medical, legal and other transcription jobs require you to listen to audio files of medical files, court cases, meetings, seminars, lectures and interviews and record them as text.

This sort of work is often on a freelance basis but, if you get a good reputation, there is plenty of work out there.

6)    Virtual Assistant

This is a relatively new phenomenon in home working. The Virtual Assistant provides administrative, secretarial and clerical support to their clients. The virtual assistants’ low overhead and low cost of service has made them a very popular choice.

Please remember that work at home roles are highly competitive and sought after. They are often filled very quickly.  A very important point to remember is to have a professional cover letter prepared and your Resume ready to include with your application to the Employer.

Good luck in your job search.
