Surprising work-from-home gigs

Posted on Posted in 2016 Business Opportunities For You, What's Trending Now


Whatever field you’re in, it’s worth asking: Could you make your job home-based, too? It depends on what you do, of course, but considering that 50+ career fields now have positions that offer job flexibility, it’s likely that working from home is actually an option.

Of course, there are the more traditional work-from-home gigs — like writing, computer programming, or graphic design — but many more (surprising!) positions are available as well. Here’s a sampling of what’s currently on the market.


1. Medical & health jobs
What may seem like a field that requires showing up in the hospital or doctor’s office every day actually has several positions that can be done (mostly) from home. Depending on the position, you can manage patient charts, monitor patient progress, and provide many other health-related job duties without leaving the house. Many nursing jobs, for example, require travel to actually care for patients, but allow you to work from home to develop plans of care, interview patients, and put together educational programs.


2. Environmental jobs
Want a win-win combo of helping the world be a bit greener while earning income from home? Plenty of environmental companies are allowing their employees to work from home, thanks to the big benefits such as cutting back on commuter congestion. (During a Cisco-sponsored National Telework Week, over 70,000 employees worked from home, and an estimated 6.9 million pounds of pollutants were reduced.)

Positions include everything from research jobs (like an Aquatic Ecologist at URS) to Legal Counsel at What’s Your Impact.

3. Entertainment & Media
Though it might not shock you that you can blog or write from home, the companies that will pay you to do so may: Ford, Mercedes-Benz, Harley-Davidson, and major greeting card companies all have opportunities for offsite writers. Why? Considering that writers generally need only a computer and Internet access, companies can save on overhead, including real estate and energy costs, by allowing these jobs to be done from home.

Positions range from Blogger and Account Executive to Independent Filmmaker and Video Producer, and can be freelance, part-time, or even full-time telecommuting.


4. Executive Management
Many companies today know that the top talent is often seeking more flexibility in their careers. As a result, it’s very common to see openings for top-level positions — think President, Vice President, CEO, or CFO — at non-profits and small companies that allow working from home (at least part of the time).

If the majority of your job involves working on the computer, it’s likely it can be done from home. So, if you’re on the job hunt, consider seeking out companies that are hiring telecommuters. Your ideal work-from-home job might be just around the corner.
