It might be hard to believe but it is true. There are work from home jobs which do not require a formal qualification or a skill set.
You will definitely have to adapt to the work nature but it will not call for any prior experience or expertise in an area.
In today’s times in any work from home job boards, you can see there are as many professional jobs as compared to ones which do not require a skillset.
I am going to list jobs which do not require a prior qualification and all of these jobs are going to earn more than pennies if you find the right one.
Freelance writing is a big trend now especially as new doors for blogging and freelancing have opened many opportunities.
Writing is very satisfying and good money earner as the demand has gone up recently.
You can opt for many opportunities like guest posting, writing articles for magazines, staff writing etc.
Some might argue that writing as a job might require a prior qualification.
But I don’t agree.
There are many who are steadily creating income by writing. What surely counts is you should know what you are writing about, if you are good at gardening, then write a guest post about gardening in a gardening website and you would be paid for it.
But if you write about something you are not sure of, then there are very good chances that your work will not be paid for or not get accepted at all.
It does require you to hone your skills of being more creative, grammatically correct and mind some rules when writing but all that gets better with time if one is interested in this field. You can find the jobs on boards like Problogger, TheWriteLife.
Google Rater/Web Researcher
This is a relatively new area which has become very popular and does not require any expertise.
Rating websites and analyzing them sounds very technical but in fact, it is a very easy and simple process. A basic understanding of Internet, Web Pages, and adaptable nature can get you this job.
You will have to follow certain guidelines which will differ slightly according to the company but the common point would be, if you are able to understand and adapt to the given set of parameters then doing this job is quite easy.
What does a virtual assistant do? Pretty much lots of things, like documents filing, doing social media management, email management, assistance in writing ebooks etc.

Website testing has been around since a long time. So who is a Website Tester?
Website Testers are people who go around websites to check if everything on the site is working well and functioning properly. You would need to be a little bit tech savvy but that is just being able to get around the web and know how to use headphones etc.
Crowd worker or micro task workers is a group of people who work on micro tasks. These are usually pay per task kind of work which will vary according to the company. You do not need any expertise for this kind of work as it based on the guidelines provided by the employer and which are not definitely hard to follow.
Telephone Researcher/Freelance Researchers
Basic quality of the researchers of any kind would have a keen eye for detail, have loads of patience and know their way around web. Freelance researching gigs vary largely according to the projects and are advertised on many websites like Upwork, Fiverr etc.
Telephone researchers should have a way with conversation as the main work is on the phone. The projects may vary from big companies to small gigs on crowdsourcing websites. You can find telephone researcher positions on job boards as well.
Apart from the jobs listed above, there are many other jobs which would not require any kind of expertise but would require you to follow some rules, acquire some basic knowledge about how things work. I will be updating new work opportunities as they come so do keep the post bookmarked.
Are there any more work from home jobs which can be done without any expertise?
