Most people have standard 9-5 jobs that they must commute to and from each day. But thanks to the evolution of technology, it’s now possible to do some jobs from the comfort of your home!

Working from home is a dream come true for people. You get to avoid rush hour traffic and the other problems associated with commuting. You also don’t have to bear witness to office politics. Nor do you have to work with people you hate.

For the most part, you can also fit your home life around your work. So taking the kids to school and picking them up in the afternoon can fit around your daily work tasks. And, let’s face it; you get to concentrate a whole lot more in an empty house!

If you have a PC and a broadband or fiber Internet connection, there are plenty of jobs that you can do from home. But which jobs pays well? In today’s blog post, I will share with you some job examples for you to consider.


Are you fluent in more than one language? If so, you should consider working as a freelance translator! You get to work on all sorts of exciting projects. Examples include website content, legal documents and even historical documents.

You don’t need any technical expertise. In fact, apart from a computer and an Internet connection, all you will need is some office software like Microsoft Word! Some translators also offer verbal telephone translation services for the police, for instance.


Those of you with a natural panache and flair for writing should consider working as a copywriter. These content writers often do well at blogging for other people. But they can also get used for writing offline content such as press releases, brochures and so forth.

Most copywriters work for themselves. Some elect to do work only for marketing agencies and web design companies. The great thing about copywriting is that you always have something different to write about each day. This is perfect for people that get bored easily!

Graphic Designer

Illustration and graphic design firms often hire people that work from home. They might have to go to the office for the occasional meeting.

But, for the most part, they can be creative at home. Some agencies even demand they work from home, as offices can sometimes hamper creativity.

IT support

Most IT problems often get solved using a simple remote connection to the affected user’s desktop. That’s because problems with computers are, for the most part, software-related. These days many Orlando IT support firms hire engineers that work from home.

On some occasions, they might have to go out on site. Still, it beats working out of the office every day! These workers will also use headsets to talk with their clients. And the best part? They can do this whilst sitting in the garden on a nice summer’s day!

Hopefully, this blog post will have given you some ideas on the types of jobs you can do from home.
