Apple - At Home Advisor 30-31k/year

A Place for Mom, Senior Care Advisor 60k/year

This one is not going to apply to everybody, as most of this company’s remote positions are either partially remote or require you to live within a certain market (see this handy post that tells us why work from anywhere jobs and remote jobs are different).

 

That said though, persons with at least three years of relevant experience living within eligible states (mostly Florida, Kansas, Texas and Washington from what I’ve noticed) can explore career opportunities here.

 

As a senior care advisor working remotely for A Place For Mom it will be your job to connect families with providers in order to facilitate the best elderly care possible. You will work directly with families providing resources and follow ups throughout the care process.

 

There’s a scarcity of information regarding remote employee experiences with this business because of their semi-remote nature; however, if you want to check out the company’s glassdoor page you can learn more about career opportunities.

 

 Rev, Transcriber 8-15/hour

For those of you who haven’t heard of this one before, Rev is basically a company that provides captioning and transcription services to clients. To begin working as a so called “revver” actually proves to be a very simple straightforward process.

 

You will be asked to answer a few questions, then, if you’re eligible you’ll take a short sample test that will familiarize you with Dash, Rev’s own transcription software. When you first begin working with Rev, you will be labeled as a rookie and only allowed to work on certain projects while receiving a slightly lower rate of pay.

 

Once you have completed 60 audio minutes of work on the platform, if you have met certain metrics, then your account status should change allowing you to take more jobs at a higher rate of pay.

 

It will behoove you to possess solid typing skills, a firm grasp of the English language including grammar, spelling and punctuation, as well as attention to detail
