Job Information for Stay-at-Home Moms with No Degree

Virtual Assistant

Virtual assistants are a type of administrative assistant that offers their services to companies from home. Their duties may include entering data into information systems, imparting information to staff, and maintaining correspondence. Experience with computers is usually needed in this type of position, such as taking a few college courses in computer programs, but nothing more than a high school diploma is typically required. Stay-at-home moms could perform their duties as a virtual assistant from a home office.

Real Estate Sales Agent

Real estate sales agents perform a variety of duties in helping people purchase or sell property. Most often they deal with residential properties. They do things like process paperwork, settle prices, and advise their clients. A stay-at-home mom could run her own real estate business from home since many real estate sales agents work from a home office. They typically need a high school diploma and state licensing.

Customer Service Representative

Customer service representatives are employed to maintain positive relations with their customers by dealing with complaints, handling orders, and answering questions. They work for many different types of companies, some of which have remote, or work from home, positions. Usually, this means the representative needs to have a separate phone line for customers. Customer service representatives need just a high school diploma, as well as some computer and effective communication skills.

Help Desk Technician

Also called computer user support specialists, help desk technicians offer support to customers when they have trouble with their computers. These technicians are usually knowledgeable enough to ask a series of questions in order to diagnose problems as well as offer solutions to the problem. More and more help desk technicians are working from home, making this a viable option for a stay-at-home mom. These technicians usually need a few college classes to prove they have enough computer knowledge to do the job, but a full degree is usually not needed.

Blogger

Bloggers write about a subject area they are familiar with and post it on their personal website. Bloggers make money by using advertising on their websites, and the more people visit their site, the more money they make. Sometimes companies will sponsor them because of how well known they are. No education credential is required to start blogging, although most bloggers have enough experience in their topic to have strong credibility with their readers. A stay-at-home mom who enjoys writing may want to blog from home.

Medical Transcriptionist

Medical transcriptionists write down the words spoken in a report or medical recording. Usually these recordings are dictations by a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare personnel. They also proofread and correct errors, translate medical abbreviations, and other tasks. Many medical transcriptionists work from home, making this an option for a stay-at-home mom. They don't need a degree, but training through a non-degree transcriptionist program to help them become familiar with the practice and terminology is usually required.
