You can make $15 to $35 per hour depending on the subject and company.
- Customer service representative
You can make $8 to $18 per hour by helping customers deal with their problems, all over the telephone. Sign up online with a staffing company that will assign you a business to work with. This job takes a real “people” person who is willing to talk and maintain a positive attitude!

Sign up through a company like Leapforce At Home, which will connect you with search engines like Google and Yahoo! that have you search items and evaluate how closely the results match with what you were looking for.
