My Favorite Five Working from Home Options
by Annabelle George
1)Amazon Mechanical Turk–This is found rewarding and interesting. Its for Amazon Mechanical Turk that I am currently devoting most of my time. I really like the diversity of works I perform here. It interests me as I always get an opportunity to devote my time on those works which are actually a passion like article writing and transcribing. Another good thing I would look to quote is the transparency when it comes to the amount earned.
2)Telemarketing-This is something that I have found great. I have done this for a bank in increasing their customer base. This is a work done from home wherein I call up the list of target people and familiarize the bank’s products based upon the preference of each person I talk to. Herein I enhanced my skill of achieving my targets within the specified time frame and I also had the opportunity to mingle with lots of people, both of which I believe have increased my skills. And I think that is why I consider this option a good one.
3)Home based Recruitment–I have done recruitments for famous MNCs. Herein I was associated with a recruitment firm which used to allot work for me based on which I was providing with interested candidates with relevant work experience to the firm. And I like this job as it had lot of scopes like interacting with candidates, interacting with the firm’s clients on behalf of the firm and getting the results as early as possible. Moreover I liked this work because I was successful in maintaining good terms with the client so that I could get things done within the set time frame.
4)Home based Counseling for Overseas Educational Programs-I was associated with a career guidance center, I used to get the prospective lists of candidates looking for studying abroad at locations like UK. I used to perform telephone counseling for these candidates after doing a background study on their current qualifications so as to make them aware of the opportunities abroad based upon their qualifications, age and other factors. I also used to make them understand of the benefits like stay back for a certain period of time after the program period is over. I thus got an opportunity to guide students through proper channels in reaching the appropriate universities for higher studies which I am very much proud of.
5)Short notes preparation for graduation students - This was an informative and interesting task as I got a chance to interact over phone and email with good number of professors along with getting knowledge about several courses based upon the study material provided. Based upon the quality of trial work I did, I was chosen by professors to prepare short notes on the topics provided by them which were then circulated among students thereby reducing the professor’s task of doing the same.
