How to get entry level work from home jobs is a concern for many, but there’s no need for worry.
Lack of experience does not exclude you from being able to work from home.
Before you jump into the list of companies, let’s talk briefly about your resume:
First – you definitely need one.
Whether a resume is needed is as common a question as whether you can work from home with no experience. Most companies will require a resume. There are some companies that almost guarantee you a position, but those are primarily in the extra cash category.
Second – though entry level work from home jobs require little (two years or less) or no prior experience, you will still be evaluated for what you can contribute. Tailor your resume to showcase the skills that match the job.
If you don’t have much professional experience, you’ll need to highlight education and transferable skills that you picked up in school, volunteer activities, and any other relevant experience.
Even if you are a seasoned professional, you might still be “entry level” to the industry that you are interested in.
When I applied for my first home job in 2008 (LiveOps), I had plenty of professional experience, but very little of it involved call centers.
So I tailored my resume to highlight roles and accomplishments that pointed to my abilities to work with no direct supervision, multi-task, successfully service customers, and meet specific goals – all essential to a home-based customer service job.
