A few years ago I had a bit of trouble finding a job. After a couple of weeks passed and I had been sitting on my ass the whole time I realized that the part I dreaded the most was actually having to go out and deal with the traffic and the STM for nearly 2 hours just to get to an interview for a job I wouldn't get hired for. And that was just the interview, the thought of commuting 2 hours in the morning and 2 more hours in the evening was tremendously depressing.
That's when I started looking into jobs where I could work from home. All of a sudden I gained 4 hours extra a day, that's almost like having an extra day at the end of the week that isn't spent in traffic and instead could be used to either work more hours or just to get shit done. Plus the money you save not having to pay for gaz and insurance or STM passes adds up quickly.
So if you're interested here's 8 Craigslist jobs where you can work from home:
1. Online English Teacher
Always wanted to teach English to Chinese students but you don't feel like actually living there. Maybe you can't afford to buy 2 plane tickets a day to commute back forth. Well now you can teach English from the comfort of your living room.
They call it journalism, but they're really just looking for bloggers. Ever went on an epic rant that made people laugh? Well then write that shit up as an article and sell it. You can talk about food, fitness, coffee, vegetarian food and pretty much any other topic you think you can turn into an article.
3. Appointment Setter
Okay this job is so easy even YOU can't screw it up. Well maybe you can, but it'll take the company a few weeks to notice and you'll be making money meanwhile.
4. Telemarketing Pro
Telemarketing jobs suck. However this is pro-telemarketer job so it either sucks a little more or a little less than a normal telemarketing job. Hopefully for you it's slightly less, but in the end you're getting paid to talk on the phone so stop complaining.
5. Sales Rep With No Commission Cap
The problem with most sales jobs is you have objectives to reach and once you do, you hit your commission cap. Which means you don't have much motivation to go above and beyond your duties (hehe doodie) But this job has no cap so you can just keep selling and keep making money.
6. Coffee Salesman
C'mon! Coffee sells itself, you might as well be selling crack. People need it every morning and it's your job to keep the java flowing so brush up on your coffee knowledge and go sell some beans.
7. Customer Service Reps
Provide customer service, perform various computer tasks and fill out surveys. You can make $100 a day however you'll need 1 incredibly rare skill. You must be able to type 20 words a minute, which means you'll have to start practicing typing slower than you already do or you can just type with 1 finger.
