Working at home is the jam. Not only do work-from-home jobs sometimes let you set your own schedule, but you get to skip tedious tasks like scraping ice off your car at the crack of dawn, getting stuck in rush-hour traffic and making small talk with your coworkers.
And doesn’t wearing sweatpants all day sound cozy?
Since working from home is a goal for a lot of our readers, we’ve rounded up 12 awesome work-at-home jobs just for Utah residents.
We’ve included a variety of full-time jobs as well as side gigs on this list. Even better? Only two of them require a college degree.

1. Watch Movie Previews With InboxDollars
Many of you already use InboxDollars, but did you know they will pay you to watch movie previews, along with dozens of other videos? Plus, they give you $5 just for signing up.
You need to watch all of the shows in a specific playlist to earn your bucks, but you can easily do that while tidying up the house or making dinner. InboxDollars lets you know how long the playlist runs before you start watching, and playlists range from a few minutes to about half an hour.
It’s possible to earn up to $225/month watching these videos!

2. Sew Some Magic as a Seamstress
Talk about the perfect side gig for sewers!
We found two work-at-home seamstress jobs located in Utah — both of them involve creating simple items for small designers.
3. Get Paid to Download Apps
Lots of companies, including Google, will pay you to install their app on your cell phone. And there’s more: they’ll also pay you for every month you keep those apps installed.
Why? Because the apps collect data from your cell phone, which companies use to better understand web and mobile usage — gathering information such as what times of day people browse, how long they stay on websites and use apps, and what types of sites and apps are popular (or not).
Here are a few of our favorite companies that will pay you to download their app:
Smart Panel: Once you’ve qualified and downloaded the app, they’ll give you $5. If you keep it installed for at least two weeks, you’ll earn another $10. And then for every month you keep the Smart App installed, you’ll get another $5. All total, you can earn up to $75 for the first year!
Media Insiders Panel: This one pays you $5 a month, and you can install it on up to three devices, making your total possible earnings up to $200 a year.
Nielsen Mobile for iPhone Users: If you have an iPhone, this Nielsen panel will pay you $50 a year to keep this app on your cell phone.
Nielsen Mobile Panel for Ages 45+: If you have a smartphone and are 45 years of age or older, this Nielsen panel will pay you $50 a year to keep this app on your cell phone.
MobileExpressions for Androids: This one can only be downloaded on Android phones. After you’ve installed it for one week, you get to play an instant rewards game for a prize — and everyone wins something! We won a $25 gift card to Amazon, but some of the other prizes include iPads Samsung TVs.
Placed Panel: This one is also for Android phones only. It’s a bit newer than some of the other options, so we’re not completely sure what the earnings potential is yet, but from what we can tell, it’s around $50 a year.

5. Set Your Own Schedule as a Transcriptionist
If you want a work-at-home job that doesn’t require sales experience or a college degree, transcription might be a good fit. This gig requires listening to audio files and typing out what you hear; you can work as little or as much as you want.
Though the work can be repetitive (think: listening to the same audio files over and over), it pays well and offers a ton of flexibility.
