The field of clerical work is prosperous, and the jobs are plentiful. Even for those that want to work from home!
Clerical workers tend to take on different roles, jobs and administrative tasks daily to meet the needs of their employer. No two days are ever the same! Tasks may include answering phones, accounting, bookkeeping, data entry, scheduling appointments, sending faxes, or managing online filing systems. If you are proficient in the office, excel with hands-on tasks, and are confident in your ability to provide assistance to others, these work-at-home opportunities may suit you perfectly.
Generally, a high school diploma or GED is all that is needed to get started in the clerical field. Good typing and phone skills, and experience with time management and word processing software are important as well, but most training is done on the job. Because so little prerequisites and qualifications are required, these are great opportunities for work-from-home beginners.
