Searching for jobs to do from at home can be quite a daunting task, largely because there are so many opportunity promoters who are willing to do or say anything to get your money.

Do you have the right skills to compete and win a real job on the internet? Here are some of the top jobs you should consider taking on if you want to be your own boss and work from the comfort of your home.
a) Virtual Assistant
Many companies and successful individuals benefit from outsourcing common tasks to personal assistants as it allows them to focus on what they do best. Many times the job requires only a few hours of dedication in a day. As long as you have basic computer and administrative skills, you can be a virtual assistant to more than one client at a time.
b) Medical Transcriptionist
Medical transcription is one of the most demanding jobs you can do at home. Although you do not need to have a degree in a medical-related field, you will need to have a keen ear and be attentive to detail. This job pays between $10 and $70 an hour depending on where you find the job.
Are you fluent in more than language? Many companies are looking to translate documents, blog posts and web content from one language to another to reach more customers and this is where you come in. Some people make a living out of translating these documents or sometimes translating audio files and videos – by making voice impressions or typing transcripts and they get paid well too.
d) Call center representative
The mention of the phrase ‘call center’ brings to mind an image of a huge hall with rows of cubicles and call center representatives on their telephones. Well, these people could as well be working at home, or it could be you answering calls at home. You just need to have a phone, a reliable internet connection, and land a job.
If you are fluent in another language, you can teach others over the internet and get paid for it.
