Today we’re going to talk about online jobs where no experience is needed.

And this is important:

These jobs are different than the entry-level remote jobs I wrote about earlier because they really don’t require experience.

You’ll see:

  • What jobs you can get.
  • Where you can get one of them.
  • What you need to get one of these jobs.
  • How much you can earn.

But first, let’s answer this:

Is It Possible To Get An Online Job Without Experience ?

Yes.  Here’s why:

Some companies actually prefer you have no experience.  This way they can train you exactly how they want you to perform the job.  In fact, the majority of the time, you are paid for your training.

So let’s quickly define an online job that doesn’t require experience.

It’s one where…

…you don’t have any work experience in the job

…you may not have any skills specific to the job

…the job is great for beginners

…a degree usually isn’t require

…it’s pretty easy to get

Don’t worry if you don’t have any experience because there are plenty of legit. online jobs where all you need are the skills you already have.  Like speaking two languages.  Or creative writing.  Or playing around on Pinterest.

Online Jobs: No Experience Needed

Here are my top picks for the best online jobs that don’t require experience so you can start working from home today.

#1  E-Commerce Product Lister

The big thing these days is starting an e-commerce store, through Amazon as an FBA seller,  Ebay, or as an independent e-commerce business.

And with this craze comes the need for people to list the items being sold for all these store owners.

Where can you get one of these jobs ?

I see quite a few E-Commerce Product Lister jobs posted on  Zip Recruiter and Indeed, most come from reputable companies with a big presence on Amazon, and some come from small start-up e-commerce Amazon shops.

But the best place to get work as an E-Commerce Product Lister is on Upwork, as an independent contractor providing e-commerce listing services.

Here’s what you need to get one of these jobs:

First and foremost, you need to be familiar with all the top e-commerce platforms: Amazon, Ebay and Shopify.  You also need to be detail oriented, know how to work within a deadline, and know how to maintain all product listings.

How much can you earn ?

Zip Recruiter tells us that the average salary for an E-Commerce Product Lister is $38,278.00 a year, Indeed shows the average being $15.00 an hour, and the average rate charged by independent contractors on Upwork is almost $22.00 an hour.

#2  Content Creator

This kind of work is for anyone who can do some online research and put that research into writing.

And the best part:  you don’t have to settle for writing for ‘content mills’, churning out an endless stream of articles that pay only a few dollars…if you’re lucky.

Content Creators usually work on a contract basis for companies, but it’s not unheard of for some companies to actually hire you as a part-time employee.

Where can you get one of these jobs ?

Here are the best places I know of where you can find work as a content creator:

Blogging Pro is a job board exclusively for content creators to find paid blogging and writing jobs.  This board is updated daily

Pro Blogger is one of the best known job posting resources for bloggers looking to hire writers.  And the content topics are quite broad, from online marketing to dating to parenting you’re bound to find a freelance writing gig that fits you perfectly.

Writer Access is a platform where you can monetize your content creation talent, which isn’t limited to writing.  If you can do graphic design, proofreading, translation, and even content optimization, check out Writer Access.

Here’s what you need to get one of these jobs:

  • You need to have an interest for writing (but you don’t have to love it).
  • You must know exactly what you’re expected to write about.
  • It goes without saying but proper grammar and punctuation are necessary skills.
  • An understanding of the topic you’re writing about helps – you can research the topic as you go.
  • You’ll have to take the time to proofread and edit your own work.

How much can you earn ?

How much you earn as a content creator depends on who you’re working for and how well you write.

For example, ProBlogger has this long-term writing assignment job listing from PaperDating.com, which pays $225.00 per week for four 1250 – 1700 word articles on dating and relationships.

The average salary for a content creator is $38,000.00

#3  Test Grader

As a Test Grader, you have the opportunity to score a variety of tests including High School equivalency tests, ACT writing tests, evaluate TEFL students (Testing of students who with to teach English as a foreign language), and even testing oral recordings of elementary students.

Online Test Scorer jobs are seasonal, in most cases, with the majority of companies hiring in Fall and Spring when standardized testing is done.  But don’t let that discourage you from checking out the companies I’ll list below because some hire off-season.

  • ALTA Language Services hires remote Testing Evaluators to assist with language proficiency exams who are fluent in specific languages.
  • EST scoring professionals evaluate samples of performance such as written short answers or essays, spoken responses and portfolios.
  • Literably, where you evaluate oral recordings of elementary students to generate generate data on fluency, accuracy, and comprehension.
  • Measurement hires evaluators to  score student responses to English language arts, mathematics, science, and other test items.
  • Write Score looks for people to read and score student responses, with positions available throughout the school year.

Here’s what you need to get one of these jobs:

Even though you don’t need prior experience to be a Test Grader, you do need a Bachelor’s degree and be able to pass a qualifying test or interview.

But not all of the companies I mentioned above are that strict.

For example, Write Score only requires you have a  2-year college degree.

And ALTA Language Services expects you to be fluent in a specif language (not always English) and have a college degree…not necessarily a Bachelor’s degree.

How much can you earn ?

This is a tough question to answer because there isn’t too much information online about the salary for a Test Grader.  But, given the little data i did find, it appears the national average rate of pay is $18.00 an hour.

#5  Information Researcher

Thanks to the internet, it’s possible to make money as an Online Researcher, using your internet sleuthing abilities to find answers to people’s questions.  Pay can be anywhere from $8.00 an hour to $35.00 an hour, depending the difficulty level of the questions and the company you work with.

Two places worth checking out are Wonder and Study Pool, which I’ll go over now.

Wonder

Wonder pays  you to be a “human search engine”, which they call a Research Assistant, answering questions submitted by paying customers who don’t want to dig for the answers themself.

Getting started is pretty easy:

First go to their website.

Then, in the ‘Join Our Community’ panel enter your name and email address, create a password, and agree to their terms and conditions (which seem to be the standard you see just about anywhere:) )

Now, click the ‘Start Application’ button to begin the application process.  It goes like this:

The application consists of a test to see if you qualify to be a Wonder Research Assistant.  This test is a sample question for you to research the answer, which is similar to the type of questions you’ll get when you start working.  The purpose of the test is so Wonder can see how quickly and accurately you answer the questions and how good you are at presenting your answer in a well-explained manner.

If you’re accepted, your next step is to learn some of the research and answer-formatting guidelines.

Finally, when you’re ready to start working, go to your Wonder dashboard and start researching answers to your assigned requests.

StudyPool

StudyPool is similar to Wonder, but your questions are from students who want a little help getting answers to their academic questions.

Even though you’re called a ‘Tutor’, you’re not tutoring in the normal sense, you’re providing answers, not teaching.

For example, let’s say a student has an essay on e-commerce due in a few days and needs to know how and when e-commerce started.  This student provides detailed information about what he needs to know and the time frame in which he needs it.You, as the Tutor, will do the research and provide the answer.

So how do you get started as a StudyPool Tutor ?

You go to their website and create an account.  You’ll have to verify your email but once you do that you can start the 20-30 minute application process.  Which, by the way, asks a lot of questions about yourself, your education, and your research abilities.

It’s strongly suggested you become familiar with the StudyPool working guidelines, which can be found here.  In a nutshell, you bid on questions similar to if you were bidding on an item on ebay.  If you’re bid is accepted by the student who posed the question, you do the research and get paid.

#6  Grocery Shopper

There’s something to be said for the convenience of outsourcing grocery shopping and it’s this: it’s on the rise !

And because more people are becoming comfortable with someone else shopping for them, there are more opportunities for you to make money.

The two most commonly used companies are Shipt and Instacart, both of which have agreements with grocery stores all over the country to have paid shoppers fill customer’s online grocery lists.

Let’s go over how each one of them can earn you money.

Shipt:

Applying to be a Shipt shopper is simple but before you get started, make sure you meet their requirements:

  • You’re at least 18 years of age.
  • You have a valid U.S. driver’s license and auto insurance.
  • You have a reliable vehicle, 1997 or newer.
  • You have knowledge of the produce section in a grocery store.
  • You can lift 40 pounds.
  • You have an iPhone (iOS 10 or newer) or Android (5.1 or newer) smartphone.

Then you can then fill out the online application, which should take about a half-hour to fill out.  Once accepted, you’re ready to make some extra money with Shipt.

Here’s how it works:

  • A customer goes to their grocery store’s website and ‘creates’ a grocery list.
  • You, as a Shipt shopper, open your Shipt app., select the area where you’re located, and find orders.
  • Once you select an order, head to the grocery store and start shopping.
  • You communicate with the customer through the app.  For example, if something is out of stock you contact the customer via the app to suggest a replacement.
  • All stores allow customers to pick up their order, which you load into their car.
  • Some locations allow delivery, where you actually deliver the order to the customer’s home.
  • You get paid weekly, up to $22.00 an hour.

You have to wear a green shirt with the Shipt logo on it, and I see a lot of Shipt shoppers use canvas tote bags with the logo on it, too (although probably an option to use it).

When you get to the checkout, just present the pre-loaded debit card…you do not pay for anything out of your own pocket.

When the order is paid, you’ll use the app to inform the customer you’re walking towards their car or to get directions for delivery.  Then when the order is loaded in the car or delivered, you mark it as delivered and go back out for more deliveries.

Instacart

Becoming an Instacart shopper starts by filling out the shopper application. Besides the typical information you must enter, such as your location, you must choose between two separate ways of shopping.

  • Full-Service Shoppers are independent contractors who use their own car to shop for and deliver groceries to customers.
  • In-Store Shoppers are part-time employees of Instacart who only shop for customers – you will not make deliveries.  However you can not work any more than 29 hours per week.

Both types of shoppers must have an Android or iPhone to take orders from. They also are required to be 18 years old, and full-service shoppers must have a reliable car as well.

Instacart works similar to Shipt, with one main difference:  Instacart tells you exactly how much you’ll make for each delivery while Shipt only gives you an estimate on the time and earnings for each order.

When done with your shopping order, pay for it by presenting the pre-loaded debit card and then use the app. to inform the customer the status of their order.

Shipt and Instacart are close in terms of payment, with $15.00 to $20.00 being the average hourly rate.

#7  Crowdsourcer

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
  • Copywriting
  • 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:

MTurk
People per hour (based in UK)
Air Tasker
We Go Look
Appen
Spare5

The process is pretty easy:

  1. Sign up
  2. Browse the available tasks and select one
  3. Do the task
  4. Get paid

#8 SPECIALIZED Graphic Designer / Image Creator

Forget about being a catch-all Graphic Designer…what you really want to do is be a SPECIALIZED Graphic Designer.  In other words, specialize in a specif design niche and reach those customers  Maybe it’s creating Pinterest Pins or infographics or feature images for blogs.

There’s a lot of need for Specialized Image Creators, especially among bloggers, because people scan blog posts.  In other words, the more eye-catching images a blog post has, the longer people stay and read, which is why bloggers pay for this kind of work.

To get started as a specialized graphic designer, you just need to know a few things:

  • Knowledge of photo editing programs like Canva (free), PIC Monkey (free), Photoshop.
  • Know where to source images, free and paid.

You can find work with companies like Shutterstock but your best bet is to offer your Specialized Graphic Design / Image Creation service as a freelancer on Fiverr and Upwork.  You’ll be able to charge your own rates and have the flexibility you want.

#9 General Transcriber

This is one of the easiest online jobs where no experience is needed.  It’s also very flexible work you can do for a little while, gain experience, then really start to make decent money.

The work is simple:

  • You listen to an audio recording
  • Type-out the conversation
  • Have your work reviewed
  • Get paid

But before you start…

Here’s what you need to get one of these jobs:

  • Good listening skills
  • Accurate typing with speed no lower than 60 words per minute
  • Knowledge of proper grammar and punctuation
  • You must adhere to the company’s specific transcribing instructions
  • A headphone
  • A foot pedal
  • Transcription software

Some of the best places to do online transcription with absolutely no up-front experience are with Rev, GoTranscript, and GMR Transcription. These companies have been scouted by us here at TheWaryWorker.com and are very reputable.

How much can you earn ?

I’m not going to lie: when you first start out, the pay is pretty low.  On the low end, you might make $6.00 an hour and on the high end around $9.00 an hour.

So this is what I suggest:

Go through my free step-by-step transcription for beginners guide.  Then, once you’re comfortable doing transcription, apply for an online transcription job with Ubiqus and Transcription Divas.  You’ll make over $20.00 an hour !

#10  Virtual Admin. Assistant

There are a lot of entrepreneurs and small business owners that don’t have the time or ability to do the day-to-day office duties. So they pay people to do those things for them.

And that’s good for you.  In fact, you can become an Admin. Assistant with no experience pretty quickly and easily just with the knowledge you have.

And it’s not out of line to make $18.00 – $40.00 an hour for your time.

You have a couple options to get work as a Virtual Admin. Assistant without experience, as I’ll go over now.

First option:

You can apply for work with one of these reputable VA companies that hire beginners:

As long as you have some basic administrative skills, for instance like typing, organizing and responding to emails, and a bit of social media knowledge, your chances of getting a job with one of these companies is pretty good.

How much does a beginner Virtual Admin. Assistant make ? it depends on the company but the average rate is $16.00 an hour.

Second option:

Start your own Virtual Assistant service business.  Which, by the way, has the potential to earn the most money.

Just take a look at how much this freelancer (via Upwork) charges for her talent:

Virtual Assistant Earnings

#11 Customer Service Specialist

Probably one of the easiest to get online jobs is one in Customer Service because there are a lot of companies hiring and they include training…which is often paid.

Nexrep, Accolade Support, Uhaul and Liveops are great companies to work for because they take complete beginners.

How much does a ‘no-experience needed’ Customer Service job pay ?

The average rate is $9.00 an hour but it’s not unheard of to make closer to $15.00 an hour.  I admit, the pay is pretty low.  But for someone with no experience, this is a pretty flexible online job that can lead to better paying Customer Support jobs.

In fact, if you stick with it and put in a few years (even working part-time), you can consider applying for better, higher-paying Customer Service jobs at places like Aha, Automattic, and Shogun.  These companies frequently hire Customer Support Reps.

#12 Translator or Interpreter

A recent Gallup poll tells us that 1 in 4 people in the USA can carry on a conversation in two languages.

Impressive !

I barely remember the few common phrases I learned in High School French class.

If you’re on of these bilinguists, you can make money at companies like Gengo, Lanuguageline and Unbabel.

Ziprecruiter tells us that the national average pay is $21.00 an hour for interpreters and $33.00 for translators.

#13  Edit Transcripts For Court Reporters

Otherwise known as Scoping, this is a work at home job that doesn’t require any experience. You just need to know how to read and type.

What you’ll do is take transcribed /stenographed court reports and convert them into words. Pretty simple, really, and you can make over $20.00 an hour doing it.

Internet Scoping School has a FREE ONLINE MINI COURSE that will get you through the basics.

#14  Amazon FBA

You sell it, Amazon ships it.  That’s Amazon FBA

Otherwise known as Fulfilled By Amazon

All you really have to do is have an item – or items – that people want to buy. Amazon does the rest. Like my friend MaryAnn, she sells all-natural soaps and lotions and makes a nice profit of over $12,000 a month, working less than 20 hours a week.

#15  Direct Sales

I used to sell Avon.  My friend Amy sells Mary Kay.  My sister is a Stella & Dot jewelry stylist.  I bet you know someone who makes money with at least one of these companies, right ?

Avon, Mary Kay, and Stella & Dot are my three favorites, but there are so many direct sales companies out there – giving you the opportunity to sell just about anything. These companies are more than just ways to make money from home, they are ways to make a living offering stuff you really like and appreciate. And you’re a business owner, to boot !

Now, I have two important things to say about this way to make money:

  1. Talking to people is a must. You make your money hosting “parties” and selling the products.
  2. Getting started will cost a little bit of money.  This covers sample products, support, a website, online directory listings…everything you need to be successful  That’s just the way direct sales companies work..

Get started with Avon $10 starter kit

Get started with Mary Kay $100 starter kit

Get started with Stella & Dot  $199 starter kit
