Immediate hire work from home jobs are available in many areas, from Content Creation, to Teaching, and even Travel. These jobs let you start now without the interview process and wait-to-hear time.
There’s a big problem when looking for work from home jobs that are hiring immediately.
And it’s this:
Most of the time, “immediate hire” doesn’t mean you can start the job immediately. It means the company has an immediate need for someone, not that they’ll hire you now. In other words, there’s still the usual hiring process so you won’t be hired today.
And that’s frustrating.
Which is why I’m going to reveal 2 types of ‘quick-to-hire-jobs’
1) Legitimate work from home jobs that can be started IMMEDIATELY. For most of them, no experience is needed.
But first, let me illustrate the difference between an immediate hire job and one that’s hiring now.
‘Immediate Hire’ vs. ‘Hiring Now’ What’s The Difference ?
The main difference is that an ‘immediate hire’ job will let you start working NOW, while a job ‘hiring now’ is looking for someone to start working at a LATER DATE.
Here’s what I mean:
Popular job-finding sites like Indeed, Zip Recruiter, Monster, and Glass Door let you narrow down your search by location, type of job, hours, and salary range.
You can even search by keywords like “immediate hire work from home”.
But here’s the problem:
Once you’ve done a search, you’re presented with a whole bunch of jobs that are AVAILABLE now. In other words, you won’t be HIRED now, you are applying to these jobs for immediate CONSIDERATION.
Here are a couple examples:
Take a look at this job posting on Indeed when I typed the keywords “immediate openings” in the search bar.
See what I mean ?
Immediate consideration. This is a REAL job but you won’t be hired immediately.
Same thing with Zip Recruiter.
Do you really want to scroll through nearly 800,000 “immediate work from home jobs” on the off-chance you’ll actually find one that will hire you IMMEDIATELY ?
‘Hiring Now’ Overview
A company that says they’re hiring now probably won’t actually hire you now. They’ll take a look at your resume, CV and cover letter. They’ll review your Skype interview. They’ll put you in the ‘to be considered’ or ‘no way’ pile and move on to the next candidate.
‘Immediate Hire’ Overview
Immediate hire jobs, on the other hand, WILL hire you now. You don’t have to wait around to apply, hear back, and go through an interview process.
So now you know the difference between immediate hire work from home jobs and work from home jobs hiring now, let’s move on to this next section…
Work From Home Jobs Hiring Immediately:
Here are my top picks of jobs you can do right now so you can start making money now – not later.
It’s no secret that just about everything can be found online. And with the abundance of online resources is the need for great content.
A Content Creator produces engaging material for a specific audience on a brand’s behalf. In other words, they create information used for online and offline mediums, with the majority of online jobs working on websites and blogs.
The content created may include blog posts, images, books, article writing, videos and social media posts.
So, my suggestion is this:
Don’t bother with those companies…yet. To get a job as a Content Creator NOW, you need to start out as a freelancer and Upwork is a popular starting point for getting paying jobs. On the Upwork platform you’ll discover a ton of need for new content for blogs as well as the need for developing content strategies for entrepreneurs.
Another option is Problogger’s job board; it has a lot of writing / copywriting opportunities worth checking out.
Teacher Material Creator
As a teacher, you’ve more than likely created resources for your students to be used one time. If that sounds like you, then the site Teachers Pay Teachers is a goldmine for making money. It’s the go-to place for educators to find the resources, knowledge, and inspiration they need while you earn a nice stack of money.
The idea is simple:
– You’ve created teaching material and products for your students.
– You sell those items to other teachers to use for their students.
– You make anywhere from $100.00 to $5,000.00 a month.
The type of things that you can sell on there includes full-year curriculum, assessments, videos, etc. According to Teachers Pay Teachers, the highest earner has earned more than $2 million through the site.
If you like variety, doing short tasks is a good option for you.
And I’ll add this: this is one of the easiest jobs you can get started on.
Basically, you’ll pick-and-choose quick assignments and earn money. How much you earn depends on the type of task you do, how many you do, and how quickly you can accurately do them. The longer, more involved tasks pay more.
What kind of tasks are there ? Here are some examples:
- Isolate elements in an image (like isolating an apple in a fruit bowl)
- Provide keywords for an image
- Data entry
- Take a look at a car for sale
- Moving services
- Cleaning services
- Local yard work
- Moderate content
- Manage social media
And here are a couple examples of how you might spend your time doing a task:
Let’s say you’re good at writing about travel destinations. You find a task for a travel blog where an 800 word article is needed. You spend 2 hours writing that article and earn $20.00 (or whatever the rate is).
Or you’re scanning through the list of available tasks and come across one where you assign keywords to a photo and make $2.00. Easy money for five minutes of your time.
Here are some reputable task sites where you can get started immediately:
The process is pretty easy:
- Sign up
- Browse the available tasks and select one
- Do the task
- Get paid
Virtual Office Assistant
When it comes to easy jobs you can do online – with virtually no waiting around to get started – a Virtual Office Assistant tops my list.
What is a Virtual Office Assistant ?
Someone who provides necessary office related tasks for businesses and entrepreneurs. Working for either a Virtual Assistant company (as an independent contractor) or as a freelancer running your own service business, how much you earn depends on the amount of work you do. In fact, being a Virtual Assistant is one of the best freelance jobs you can do because you can you can make at least $20.00 an hour often over $30.00 an hour.
There are a lot of companies you can work for but sorting out the best ones can be time consuming. So, to help you save time, here are a few of my post on the becoming a Virtual Assistant:
- Best Virtual Assistant companies to work for – for beginners and pros.
- How To Become A Virtual Assistant With No Experience – you’ll see what it’s like to be a Virtual Office Assistant and how to make money at it.
- The services you should offer as a Virtual Assistant – and where to learn them.
Virtual Office Assistant jobs do require you submit a resume and wait a few days to hear if you got the job, however, it’s usually an online questionnaire that’s quick to fill-out.
Test Websites and Apps.
Bloggers, website owners, and app. developers know how important it is to have a finely-tuned product.
But they are biased and can’t always see their flaws. To make sure their blog, web site or app is perfect, they pay people to test them.
In other words: they hire YOU to test their stuff. And you get to do it all online, with virtually no experience.
Enroll and Respondent are the two website testing platforms I use. To get started, I enrolled in the program by submitting my email address,creating a password, and picking my preferred method of testing (desktop computer, tablet, or smartphone). Once fully registered, I received emails when assignments were available for me.
Tasks and pay vary, but I did one job that took less than 5 minutes and it paid .80 cents.
But they come with a catch:
You have to do a screening test to see if you qualify, which is a 1-3 question survey. I’m sad to say that I was denied for many of the tests, therefore, I’m sticking with Respondent and Enroll
Here’s a tip to make money doing web and app. testing: As soon as you receive an invitation to participate in a test, grab the opportunity ASAP !
Life or Business Coach
Sometimes people need a little nudge. A little guidance in their life or business.
Which brings me to this immediate-hire remote job:
Life and business coaching.
There are a few platforms that will get you going as a coach, such as:
The first thing you need to do is set up your profile, explaining what you coach. Then, with the platform’s marketing help, you get paid when you engage with a client.
What does a transcriber do ?
You listen to a recorded file and type out what you hear; that’s the bare bones of being a transcriptionist.
And the work is easy to do.
But here’s the problem with online transcription jobs:
Working for a company that not only hires quickly but pays well is hard to come across because a lot of them are pure junk. So, to help you out, I’ve written a few posts that’ll get you a decent transcription job:
Shipt is a well-known grocery shopping / delivery services and is quickly becoming one of the best online jobs you can start today.
In fact, a few years ago, Publix grocery stores in the Tampa, Florida area was having trouble meeting customer demands for food delivery services so they turned to Shipt to help keep their customers happy.
So there’s no doubt there is a need for shoppers.
Here’s how you make money with Shipt:
- A customer creates a grocery list via the Shipt app.
- You, the Shipt shopper, do the shopping and make the delivery to the customer’s home.

A while ago I wrote about several ways moms can work from home with little experience. One job that stands out – and is perfect for the immediate-start topic of this post – is becoming a kid-friendly Travel Planner.
If you know how to keep the little ones happy when planning a vacation, this is the perfect job for you !
You can be a Disney Travel Specialist at Magical Vacation Planner, and make over $1200.00 a month.

There are many different deliver services out there, from delivering packages with Amazon Flex to picking-up things “on the way” with Roadie.
In fact, I list several delivery service jobs in this post..
Although not an instant job, delivery service jobs have a short hiring delay, and for good reason.
Here’s what I mean:
With Uber Easts, a food delivery service, it’ll take about 3-5 days to get approved.
Postmates takes about 3-10 days to approve you.
The reason for the delay: you have to pass a background check. However, this will not only clear you for a job, it will instill confidence in all parties.
The earnings depend on the number of hours you work, which can average $8.00 to $15.00 per hour, including tips.
This is a cool new way to make money online…immediately.
For bloggers, Pinterest is an effective way to market a blog. However, it can be overwhelming. First of all, there’s all the Pin creating and organizing. Second, there’s the sharing and marketing aspect. And third, it’s very time consuming.
So bloggers pay people to do the work for them.
How do you get started ?
By knowing a bit about Pinterest and following these steps
Special Niche Photographer
Take pictures. Get paid.
Sounds simple, but the truth ?
You have to take A LOT of pictures.
Unless you’re a Special Niche Photographer.
Bloggers need photos for their blog posts. And they’re sick of using the same-old free images that everyone else uses. So they pay to have some awesome fresh, never before used, images.
Which is where you come in.
Whenever the mood hits you, whip out your cell phone and snap some pictures.
The secret, though, is to stay within a niche.
For example, this work at home blog, caters to people wanting to work form home. The blog posts use pictures that have office-y related scenes. Computer, office supplies…you get the idea.
Another example is Amy Ransom’s blog on surviving motherhood. She focuses on all things mom and uses images with a child theme.
So, where do you go to sell your specialized niche images ?
First, go to Fiverr, a goldmine marketplace for people looking to buy never-before-used pictures. Just set up your profile in a way that lets people know you’ll sell them a certain number of pictures.
