Everyone has to start somewhere. It’s no different for work-at-home jobs. If you’re new to the workforce, or have been out of it for a little while, there are work-at-home jobs that don’t require experience. Please note, that just because a company may be willing to hire inexperienced people, doesn’t mean they don’t want workers who have some level of skill or equipment. Customer service jobs require a friendly demeanor and pleasant voice. Further, not all companies listed below may have entry-level job openings at this time. For example, a company that sometimes hires entry-level customer service, may currently only have openings for level II or experienced CSRs. You’ll need to check with each company to see what they have available at this time.
Also, be sure to check out WAHS’s giant list of over 300 companies that hire people to work at home.

Online writers can be asked to compose anything from blog posts and articles, sales letters, social media messages, email, and more.

- Write a targeted, tailored resume for each job
- Expand and improve your skill set (the more you can offer, the more valuable and marketable you become). Some skills you should develop include using spreadsheets, photo editing (i.e. making social media graphics), using WordPress, writing (SEO and content writing), etc.
- Keep your resume up-to-date on knew skills and resources you learn.
- Use LinkedIn and other networking resources.
