Data-entry clerks are always going to be in demand: Companies will always need people to input text and data, whether it’s medical records or invoices. The only requirements are that you be a fast and accurate typist. Since it’s really just you and the computer, many companies hire data-entry clerks to work from home. So, why not make your home/office at the beach?
The average salary is $10 to $13 per hour, according to PayScale.com, with some of the highest hourly rates in San Jose, Calif., Long Beach, Calif. And Miami.
At the Beach: This may be one of those jobs that’s better in an office overlooking the beach, since you may have a pile of papers or other material to be cross-referencing – stuff you don’t want blowing away!
