ONLINE CHAT HOST JOBS FOR FUN AND A PAYCHECK
Work at Home Online Chat Host Jobs
When I first lost my job at the radio station – I heard about online chat host jobs through my research of work at home. I ended up being able to get one – and was thrilled.
I had an online chat host job for over a year. I did some chat rooms on Martha Stewart's website at the time. (Years ago) Yes–I had to apply with a resume and qualifications and yes, I had to go through training. And no….I didn't make very much. It was minimum wage and part-time hours (which is what many online chat host jobs are going to be). BUT–that doesn't mean you can't find a full time gig that you enjoy, can do from home and make some cash to boot!
The best way to get one of these online chat host jobs is to volunteer as a moderator in other chat rooms or as a moderator on message boards. You get FREE training by doing this–and it looks great on a resume. If they see you've had other online chat host jobs, then they are more willing to hire you.
And even though I didn't get rich at it…..I can tell you one thing…I was THRILLED when I did get my paycheck.
That little paycheck allowed me to stay home with my son when he was little. My daughter hadn't been born yet – but it was a starting point for me to learn that working at home was possible and that there were real options out there.
The online chat host training I went through was not hard….and because I was working for a Martha Stewart chat room at that time….I got all kinds of books that Martha had written in order to be able to answer questions in the chat rooms that I was assigned. I also needed to be sure to watch her show each day, so that if someone came into my room and asked. For example….”Today on Martha….she was planting this plant……”
Because I'd watched the show, taken notes and read up on things….I was prepared to help out anyone that came into that chat to discuss gardening. This is exactly the type of work that online chat host jobs will entail.
I also made sure that no one broke any rules. Name calling, fighting, gossip…..
As moderator you make sure all the rules are followed and if they aren't, you have the controls to “boot” someone out of the room of ban them altogether. (Please see a full list of moderator jobs here.)
Yes…oh the power! Haha!
I wouldn't say this is a necessarily hard job….BUT, if you get a chat room that is really hoppin' and the conversation is going at a quick clip….you need to be paying attention. So I would say…typing fast…..reading fast – those our minimums for this type of work.
I do my best to find current moderator jobs….sometimes they just need moderators to keep an eye on their message boards and approve or delete messages, respond to posts and questions. This is called “sweeping” the boards. Not hard at all…..and actually kind of fun if you're doing message boards that cover a topic you enjoy.
A lot of times….like I said….there are volunteer online chat host jobs and positions…..but this is a good way to get some experience. It's also a good way to network. You might be able to find work just by being a part of a certain community and volunteering. Or maybe a volunteer job might become permanent. You never know.
Keep your eyes peeled for these types of positions because they go FAST and they go to the most qualified.
