    Hi everyone,

    I have been looking for part time work I can do from home while I complete my M.S. degree. It hasn't been going well for the past 3 months.

    I began to apply with Arise until I did a little research and found out there is a start-up cost, with no guarantee of work/satisfaction with job. They sound like a great company, but I can't afford to pay to work right now.

    I was wondering if any of you knew or were employed by companies that offer no-phone customer service jobs? I heard Cloud 10 is pretty good, but I would need a landline phone and since I am renting a room, I do not have one.

    I do have high speed internet access and customer service experience, I just need a little help finding a good company.

    Anything would be great, thanks for reading this.

    Have you considered getting a VOIP service like Vonage?

    If you have to pay for a JOB then it is really not a job opportunity. More like a work at home opportunity.

    Matt, I never thought of Vonage.


    Talfighel, I know what you mean. Arise recruits people to be independent contractors, and a lot of people say the pay is good I just can't afford to take that risk at the moment.

    Google voice. Once you set up a number. You can call from the phone line in a gmail account.

    Mate try some freelance work,
    I have jsut started doing some free lance writing and its great.

    Not huge dollars yet, but the extra helps.

    There is a post about freelancing on my blog the address is below in the signature.

    seriously consider this, it is real work with real payments, i was very sceptical and took a 2 months to get involved.

    Glad I did.

    Also www.fiverr.com is good fun too. If you can come up with a Unique idea it will pay.

    All these are FREE to join and use.

    Good Luck

    Hey Makisov,

    Why not try the ebay classifieds dot com. I found positions like "Lead Generator", "Online Marketing Postion", "Writer" just explore. Do not limit to a ZIP code, as these jobs could be done remotely as in your requirement.

    Sign up to skype, get a used headset with mic and skype compatibility, should be able to find at craig's list for a few bucks.
