5+ Flexible Work-at-Home Jobs That Let You Set Your Own ScheduleThere are so many work-at-home jobs around, but the ones that let you work when you want to are the most wanted. Having flexible work is the best feature when you are planning to look for online jobs.

The independence of working in your own time can be beneficial for many reasons such as low stress, being more productive and having a good work-life balance.

Today, I will share some of the work-at-home jobs/ hustles which have high flexibility and can give you the freedom of working whenever you want according to your schedule.


Data Entry

Data entry jobs are the most wanted on the web because the work is relatively easy and most of us have basic typing skills. Typing jobs are usually flexible where you work when you want to with only project deadlines.

You can easily pick data entry gig on websites like MTurk, Clickworker and freelancing sites like Upwork (formerly oDesk), Freelancer, etc.

Though data entry jobs don’t pay much, the main point here is to get the flexibility than the income. You can also check out this list of websites which offer data entry gigs.


Search Engine Evaluation

I can personally say search engine evaluation is the most flexible online job. There are many companies which offer these positions, and the best part is, these roles are open worldwide in many countries. These roles are an excellent choice for someone looking for a good work-life balance.

You get to work according to your schedule, just need to finish allocated hours in a week. The major companies which offer these roles are Appen, Lionbridge, iSoftStone, Leapforce. Keep in mind that you have a qualification test after your resume gets accepted with all of these companies.

Tutoring is another great option if you want a work-at-home job to suit your schedule. There are many online tutoring platforms where you can teach online and make money in your own time. Some companies might ask for prior teaching experience, but some don’t.

You can even try teaching simple conversation English to Chinese students. Online teaching websites like Nicetalk and Palfish have such tutoring jobs. Some of other tutoring sites where you can try teaching are Tutor.com.


Uber Driving

Though Uber driving is not a work-at-home job, it can be an awesome option to earn money in your timings. It is an excellent money-making option if you are looking to work for a couple of hours a day while kids are at school or if you want to work on the weekends.

It is very flexible, and you decide the work timings. I recently interviewed a friend of mine who drives Uber during the week days and he shares reasons why it is such a great option for flexibility.


Home Businesses

Home businesses are not usual jobs, but they have great income generating potential and let you work anytime you want. They have a great flexibility because you decide the time you work.

There are many profitable home businesses like Etsy selling, Amazon selling, Social media management, Event planning, Flipping, etc. They do require you to invest some money before you start the business but the returns can be high.



Freelance work is another good choice if you are looking to set your schedule of work. The amazing thing about freelancing is that you can do many things. You can do data entry, website design, admin work, research and many more.

You can easily register with many freelance sites like Upwork, Freelancer.com and start looking for projects. I had a chance of interviewing Holly who is a freelance writer, and she travels around the world with her family while earning a great income.


Whether it is rideshare driving or freelancing, there are many options which let you work from home and set your own schedule. Most of the online jobs are flexible, but finding the right job to suit one’s routine is something we all want.

So, check out the above work-at-home jobs and see which suits you the best.
