Sometimes a phone can still be an option for work from home even if you think you can’t take a phone job due to the background noise requirements. Here are some posts I’ve written that may help:
Many people do successfully manage phone jobs from home with kids around. I’ve done a lot of research into how they make that work and compiled it in the below post.
Believe it or not, there are a few phone jobs you can get where background noise is not an issue and is in fact encouraged. These jobs fall under the “phone mystery shopping” category.
