Work at Home Customer Service Positions

Do you have customer service skills and currently work from home or plan to transition to working from home? There are many home based customer service positions available that allow you to work from home and utilize the customer service skills you have without all the extra expenses of gas for a daily work commute or endless expense of a costly career wardrobe.
There are a couple items to remember, most companies require you have a noise reduction or noise canceling head set that you must purchase and they also require that you have a land line phone line that you can receive phone calls on. There are also some hardware requirements that include the computer you will be working on, the internet connection etc. and each website clearly lists the requirements you need to work for them. In researching the noise-canceling headset with microphone I found a Logitech ClearChat Pro USB selling between $20.00 and $60.00.
Most schedules are flexible and the best part is you can work from home.
Take a look at these different sites and figure out what one is best for you.
