Chat Host Operator Jobs

These are a fairly new concept in the Internet world. This line of telephone work allows a person, usually female, to sit on the phone or voice chat and offer support, guidance, advice or just an ear to listen to people’s problems. People all over the world will call in and you’ll just sit there and listen to people’s problems and offer advice when asked.

Sounds too good to be true? Think about the number of people who don’t have anyone they can turn to during tough times. Or the fact that studies have found that people are more likely to tell a stranger about serious problems than their loved ones. All of these reasons have made chat host operator jobs popular.

As with all jobs there are always pros and cons with working for these types of jobs.

Become A Chat Operator

Working as a chat host operator allows a person to be able to stay at home with the children and bring in a little bit of money. Day-care or babysitting fees can cost hundreds of pounds a week. By being able to stay at home and watch the kids and make money you’re able to bring in a little bit of extra income and save the money that you would have spent on day-care or babysitting.

Another great benefit about chat host jobs is that for the most part you can choose your hours. Many companies allow you to pick the shift that you want to work. The majority of these companies are open 24/7 so that you can pick a shift while your kids are asleep or at school. You are also considered a freelancer, so if you need to take some time off for a holiday or family emergency it’s fairly easy to do without all the hassle of filling in paperwork or finding a replacement.

Working from home

Work at home jobs such as working chat host operator jobs do come with a few drawbacks. Many companies, especially those in the telephone work, will require that you have absolute silence in the background. As a stay at home mother, it can be virtually impossible to make sure that your kids are 100% quiet at all times. Another major drawback of stay at home jobs can be the lack of co-worker interaction. You will spend all day working with your computer and a mystery caller, it can get very frustrating and boring if you are the only one working. Many stay at home mums form chat groups to support each other but there is the risk of little co-worker interaction.

Extra cash

Chat host jobs can be a great way for a stay at home mum to pick up a little bit of extra money. As with all jobs there are pros and cons to taking chat host operator work but it can really help pay off especially when you are able to treat your kids to something special, buy that special present during the holidays or birthday time or even to take that family holiday that you thought you weren’t going to be able to afford.
