At Home Call Center Jobs
At a time when work from home scams continue to rank high on the list of top consumer
complaints to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), there are in fact real work from home
jobs to be found. You just have to know where to look. In this article I will share with
you some information about at home call center jobs, a brief overview of the top employers
hiring at home call center agents, and how you can apply for these jobs.
Some of the top employers currently hiring employees to work from home are companies
operating telemarketing call centers and contact centers. Traditionally, these companies
operated "land based" centers; physical facilities where work was performed. Today
however, leveraging advanced technology, many companies now employ representatives working
from home. Where in the past it may have been unfeasible, the availability of virtual call
center technology, and the widespread use of high-speed Internet access has changed this.
Now it's not only feasible, but also advantageous to companies to employ at home workers.
Many of the expenses associated with operating a call center are greatly reduced or
eliminated when an agent is employed from home. Savings on such things as computers,
cubicles and buildings provide huge incentive to companies adopting this business model,
and a large variety of real work from home jobs have been created in the process.
The types of jobs created by these companies are as diverse as the jobs found at
traditional telemarketing companies. Jobs can be found in appointment setting, customer
service, fundraising, order taking, research, surveys, sales, technical support and more.

companies offering these positions do little by way of advertising. They don't have to.
There's tremendous competition among job seekers for these highly desirable positions. The
