10 Great Work-From-Home Jobs


Working from home promises big benefits: extra income, flexible hours and a dress code of slippers and sweatpants. The trick, of course, is finding legitimate, well-paid positions because work-at-home scams abound.

To assemble our list of top work-at-home jobs, we combed through employment data to identify occupations with good hourly wages and promising growth prospects. We then researched actual companies that hire home-based workers as well as career Web sites that strive to post legit work-at-home job openings.

To weed out scammers, we checked out companies with the Better Business Bureau and other professional associations. While we can’t guarantee that you’ll get hired for one of these work-from-home jobs, at least you can have confidence that none of these employment opportunities is too good to be true.

Average pay estimates are based on compensation data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics,,, other career and compensation Web sites, and individual employers. Actual pay will vary depending on many factors including education, experience, location, responsibilities, job performance and employer.
