Got Admin Skills? 7 Companies Where You Can Work from Home

by Chris Durst July 30, 2018

Here at RRR we receive many queries from people who have great administrative support skills but who aren’t sure how to find a related work from home job.

We list a number of options on our BIG LIST of Work from Home Jobs, so it’s a good starting point. To round out that list, this post will direct you to 7 sites where you use those administrative skills you’ve worked so hard to perfect!

With Clara, the emphasis is on scheduling so, if you are very organized and great at making sure everyone is where they need to be when they need to be there, this may be for you. No state hiring restrictions mentioned, but you have to be available to work Pacific time zone hours.

The work is done mostly via email so this is a non-phone job!

When we first wrote about Clara in 2016, pay was reportedly around $15/hr. once you got “in the groove” and were able to work efficiently. We assume it isn’t less now, but will update here when we get more detail.

In their words:

Clara is a system that combines the best of both humans and software to provide always-on, data-packed, better-than-human support through our Human-in-the-loop system.

We use software to make the most tedious parts of scheduling trivial, and behind that is a human being that has contextual understanding and good judgment whenever it’s needed.

With Clara, you have 24/7 access to better-than-human support at a fraction of the cost of an in-office employee or remote assistant. Scheduling today requires you to spend your time managing email threads, your calendar, context switching, rescheduling, following up, sending calendar invites, and more to get a meeting on the calendar.

Worldwide 101

In their words:

Worldwide101’s team of talented professionals has left behind the daily commute for the advantages of working virtually. For some its about having a more flexible schedule, or the freedom to spend winter somewhere warm, or the variety of working with multiple clients. As a business-class Virtual Assistant, you’ll play the rewarding role of supporting entrepreneurs and small business owners with a wide range of tasks, helping them to succeed, and freeing them up to focus on growing their business.

Sound appealing? If you have a strong professional background in administration, customer service, marketing, or project management, an interest in learning new skills, & a stable home-office environment we’d love to hear from you.

Time etc.

Several RRRebels have been hired by Time etc recently. Pay starts at $11/hr. and reportedly can go up to $16. If you have a background in any of these areas, you may want to check them out. (Note that each job at Time etc comes with a general administrative support component, so you’ll need to be able to provide that, too.)

— Personal assistant, admin assistant, or executive assistant
— Marketing or social media
— Writing or blogging
— Telesales or customer service

In their words:

If you’re a full time freelancer or if you’re just looking to earn extra money from your skills, freelancing with Time etc really makes sense.

Whatever your skill-set, freelancing through Time etc can deliver regular ongoing work – as much or as little as you are happy to do.

Unlike other marketplaces there is no overseas competition and no bidding to secure jobs. Instead there is a guaranteed, fixed, hourly rate matched to your skills.
