jobs without any expertise

It might be hard to believe, but it is true. There are work-from-home jobs that do not require a formal qualification or a specialized skill set.

You will definitely have to adapt to the nature of the work, but it will not call for any prior experience or expertise in an area.

In today’s times, on any work-from-home job board, you can see there are as many professional jobs as ones that do not require a particular skillset.

I am going to list jobs that do not require a prior qualification, and all of these jobs are going to earn you more than pennies if you find the right one.


Freelance writing is a big trend now especially as new opportunities for blogging and freelancing have opened up.

Writing is very satisfying and a 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 counts the most is that you know what you are writing about; for example, if you are good at gardening, then write a guest post about gardening for a gardening website and get paid for it.

But if you write about something you are not sure of, then there is a very good chance 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 minding some rules when writing, but all that gets better with time if one is interested in this field. You can find jobs on boards like ProBlogger and TheWriteLife.


I am quite happy that I started this side hustle along with my work-at-home job. The biggest plus of this flexible work-at-home online hustle is the possibility of having a high income. I am currently earning around $4,000 per month with my blog, and this is along with my job. There is no need for any technical knowledge; just follow this step-by-step guide and start your blogging hustle.

Google Rater/Web Researcher

This is a relatively new area that 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, and an adaptable nature can get you this job.

You will have to follow certain guidelines, which will differ slightly depending on the company, but if you are able to understand and adapt to the given set of parameters, then doing this job is quite easy.

Companies like Lionbridge and Appen Butler Hill advertise jobs in this area.

Virtual Assistant

What does a virtual assistant do? Lots of things, like document filing, social media management, email management, assistance in writing eBooks, etc.

A virtual assistant may do everything that a personal assistant does. You would need to be tech savvy, have good communication skills, and be good at researching, but it’s not something that requires a degree or a qualification.

If you know your way around the web and are a good self-learner, you can do this job. You can find potential VA jobs on Upwork.

If you are confused about the services you can offer as a VA, check out Gina Horkey’s FREE massive list of 150 VA services. Her courses have helped over 300 people become virtual assistants over the past few months.

Customer Service

This job does require some prior experience, but this can be overlooked if you have a good demeanor and good communication skills. This is not a line of work that is hard to cut in, but it does require you to hone your communication skills. And the good news is there are many online customer service jobs even with big companies like Apple (Apple at-Home Advisors), Hilton, Concentrix, etc.

You can find many other customer service jobs on forums like WAHM.

Website Tester

Website testing has been around for a long time. So what does a website tester do?

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 being able to get around the web and knowing how to use headphones, etc. is all it takes.

There are many companies that require website testers like UserTesting, Testbirds, UserZoom (formerly WhatUsersDo), Analysia, etc. Different companies have different pay scales for testing.

Crowd Worker

A crowd worker or a microtask worker is someone who works on microtasks. 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 is based on the guidelines provided by the employer, which are definitely not hard to follow.

The companies that offer this kind of work are Amazon’s Mechanical Turk, Lionbridge, Appen Butler Hill, and Clickworker.

Telephone Researcher/Freelance Researchers

The basic qualities researchers of any kind need to have would be a keen eye for detail, loads of patience, and to know their way around the 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 part of the work is on the phone. The projects may vary from working for big companies to completing small gigs on crowdsourcing websites. You can find telephone researcher positions on job boards as well.

You will also find some work-at-home jobs in the remote category of Indeed and some legitimate hourly paid part-time jobs on Snagajob.

Apart from the jobs listed above, there are many other jobs that do not require any kind of expertise but do require you to follow some rules and acquire some basic knowledge about how things work. I will be updating new work opportunities as they come up, so do keep this post bookmarked.
