You might consider a job ($9 to $19 an hour
) with a virtual call center, such as Arise Virtual Solutions
, West Corp.
or Alpine Access
. As an independent contractor (or, in some cases, an actual employee with benefits), you would provide customer support for companies such as Office Depot, Sears, J.Crew and even the Internal Revenue Service.
In general, you must provide your own computer, designated telephone line and high-speed Internet connection -- and, in some cases, pay for your training to become a certified agent. But if you have the time, companies need “operators standing by.”
