You’ve likely seen the ads online: “Make $2,000 a week working from home just two hours a day! No experience required!” or the comments on completely unrelated articles posted on social media: “I make $120,000 a year working five hours a week online using this website.” It all seems too good to be true—and to be completely up front, it is.
There is no “one simple trick” that will help you make a salary online that’s wildly disproportionate to what you’d make in a traditional in-person role in a fraction of the time. But you can find good, legitimate online jobs that don’t require a lot of—or even any—experience.
Here are some of the most common online jobs and how to land a legitimate one, with or without experience.
There are a number of online and remote jobs that are completely real and pay you a decent amount of money in return for your labor. However, there are also plenty of scams masquerading as legitimate online jobs as well as jobs that are real but pay you so little they may not be worth your time and effort.
