Best Paying Work at Home Jobs for Women

Best Paying Work at Home Jobs for WomenBy J.J. Smith

The advantages of working at home are clear for many. One of the biggest problems, though, is how to get a job that pays well but still allows you to work at home. Wondering what some of the best jobs out there for women are?

Here are just a few at the top of the list.


Healthcare services everywhere are looking to cut back here or there and save some cash, and one way they’re doing that is by choosing teleradiology departments. If you have the right training, this is one great way to make some cash. The idea here is that you work for a group or you gather contracts on your own, then you handle everything from the comfort of your home office. While the salary isn’t quite what you’d make with some of the top hospitals in the nation, it beats having to commute every day.


As with the last job, this one takes some specialized training, but the payoff is huge. You’ll be reviewing medication orders at hospitals and pharmacy locations across the nation, then authorizing the system to actually dispense those drugs. In most cases, you’ll be covering many different locations at one time, but this gives hospitals a way to deal with pharmacy needs even during odd hours or holidays.


The healthcare needs of almost every country on the planet are growing fast, so it only makes sense that many of the best paying work at home jobs deal with that field, and this one is no exception. Telenursing, though, isn’t a new concept. Because nursing shortages have been present for a long time, there’s some history as well as some refinement in the field today. The best part, though, is that it’s a wide field. In some cases, you can work for an insurance company to help patients answer their healthcare questions. In other cases, you can work for hospitals or a physician’s office helping to deal with after hours calls about whether or not to seek medical attention. The work is always exciting, and the paycheck is often as good as getting up and going to work morning after morning.

Technical Writer:

While healthcare continues to dominate the best paying list, if you have the technical writing skills you need, you could make some pretty amazing money without a healthcare degree. Technical writers create instruction manuals and a variety of other support documents to help make complex instructions seem far easier. The catch here, though, is that you’ll need a lot of knowledge and an understanding of how best to communicate with a variety of different audiences. A technical writing degree can be helpful, as can a good business sense because often you’ll play independent contractor in this role.

Financial Manager:

The number of people looking to manage their wealth is growing, particularly since so many people are left to deal with their own retirement portfolios these days. Financial managers are helping to fill that gap. While many bigger firms still demand office hours from most financial managers, you could still do quite well by striking out on your own in this field.

Working from home doesn’t have to mean struggling for a paycheck. With jobs like these consistently providing more to women across the globe who work from home, you can find a great paying job without the hassle of actually going to work.
