7 Work-From-Home Jobs You Might Not Know About

Along the same lines, there are multiple job opportunities for work-from-home pharmacists at nationwide companies such as Humana and LifePoint Hospitals (LPNT). Obviously, these positions aren't focused on interacting with customers so much as developing strategies and working on research for pharmaceutical treatments. Humana is looking for an oncology pharmacist to study clinical treatments, while LifePoint is looking for a remote order pharmacist who can analyze the patient's health profile to make recommendations about their treatment.

Social worker
Social work isn't exactly your typical office job to begin with, as workers often have to go out and consult with people in need, but some companies don't require social workers to come into the office at all. OptumHealth, a part of the UnitedHealth Group, has a position for a full-time social worker who consults with patients and their families to help find the proper medical care, insurance options and community programs. While it is listed as a telecommuting job, this position does require you to live in the Seattle area, presumably so you can meet with families and medical personnel in person if need be.

Executive assistant
Not all executive assistants have to work in an office. FlexJobs has several postings for full- and part-time assistants who can telecommute.

For example, the Research and Innovative Technology Division, a branch of the Department of Transportation, is looking for an executive assistant who coordinates surveys, prepares travel advisories and coordinates with high-level officials by phone and email. The position itself is based in Washington, D.C., but telecommuting is an option. Oh and did we mention the salary starts at more than $60,000 a year?

Team manager
You don't necessarily need to be in the office to manage a team anymore. General Electric has a posting for a consumer service manager who is responsible for managing a team of appliance repair technicians in Maryland and Washington, D.C. While the company is looking for someone who lives near that area, much of the job is expected to be handled out of a home office.

Food safety inspector
Science Certification Systems, an independent group that certifies company claims about everything from food safety to sustainability, is looking for a food safety auditor to vet food safety claims. This is a contract telecommuting position, though it does require traveling the country to carry out inspections.

High school adviser
So much for visiting the guidance counselor's office., an online education program, has an opening for a high school adviser responsible for reaching out to students by phone and email and planning online orientation sessions, among other tasks. It's a part-time job and one that can be done almost entirely from home.
