Finding a legitimate work at home opportunity is a dream for many, and it was for me too!
When I first found out that it was possible, I was completely on board.
However, when I started, I didn’t have much experience. I was fresh out of high school and new to the adult world.

I tried many different options, some paying well, some not. But, all of them were legitimate work at home opportunities.
(These are all company opportunities. If you’re interested in starting with freelancing and/or a blog, check out my other articles How To Start An Affordable Money Making Blog/Website In 2018 and How To Start Freelance Writing (+ Make Money Doing It!))
Through my own experience and extensive research, I have compiled a current list here for your reference!
I have divided it into several sections all the way from survey/microwork up to larger (potentially contract) positions.
I sincerely hope this can help anyone looking to start their WAH journey! If you have any questions please drop a comment down below!
Legitimate Work At Home Opportunity List
Get paid to solve the tasks you choose. Pays in dollars once your work is approved.
Get paid to be an online personal assistant! From my experience, the pay is decent per task, around $3-5 a task approximately. Some pay more, and some come with bonuses!
Join for free and earn money/gift cards (through points) from taking surveys and searching the web. Making purchases in online stores you already use is a great way to get points fast. Also, sign up using my link and get an extra 300 SB when you earn your first 300 SB!
This is also a survey site that uses a point system. The points can be used to redeem gift cards from the site. It looks like they also have cash prize contests!
This is also a microwork type site. Writing content, web research, and it looks like surveys as well are the type of work on this site. Pays via Paypal.
Work from home reviewing and categorizing recorded phone calls.
Get paid to complete testing for websites and apps! Pays via Paypal 7 days after you complete a test.
This one is kind of in between of microwork and higher paying work so I just put it here. (: This is a great transcription/typing opportunity! No experience required, just apply, pass the test, and start working (wherever and whenever you choose). Pays $5 – 25/audio hour via Paypal with a bonus for every 3 hours completed!
Higher Paying/Contract Based

Great opportunity that has various customer service and moderation jobs.

Many WAH opportunities with this company, a common one is social media evaluation. It also offers a variety of benefits listed on the linked page!
Work for Appen doing social media evaluation and/or web search evaluation! This is contract work for these positions.
This company hires for transcription for clients around the world and in a variety of topics. From my research, it appears they pay once a month on the 15th via Paypal or check! Bonuses are also offered for certain kinds of work.
This company hires for data entry positions and has a good reputation. The link I added does go to the site, but there is no application on it. You will need to email them with your full name, phone number, and address in your first email.
