This list represents but a small sliver of the sales jobs from home that are available. Sales jobs can very often be a combination of working from home, on-site work and travel, so few sales jobs are advertised as simply “work from home.” That said, this list--which includes everything from account exec positions to telemarketing--will give you some ideas and leads, but be sure to search local job ads and job boards for industries in which you have experience.
Also, this list does not include any direct selling opportunities (e.g., Avon) because those are home businesses, not jobs. For more on direct sales, browse this list of direct sales business resources.
