As a part of its planned expansion in global markets, ChaCha invited UK residents to serve as "Guides.” To become a home-based guide for ChaCha, the candidate should be tech-savvy.

This is a uniquely flexible extra income opportunity for university students, professionals, stay-at-home parents, night owls, pensioners, pub trivia players or just about anyone who wants to spend their time helping others while building a new and unique skill set. Guides complete an extensive training program and receive access to proprietary tools equipping them to become expert Web searchers.
