If you're looking to make money and grow your career from the comfort of your own home, we have some good news: The number of work-from-home opportunities is on the rise.
Year over year, there have been more organizations listing work-from-home positions including both full-time and part-time positions, according to FlexJobs. What's more, many of these openings offer great benefits and cover a variety of industries including education, nonprofit, and marketing.
"We've definitely seen remote working increasing over the last several years," Brie Reynolds, FlexJobs' senior career specialist tells WomansDay.com. "From our own data, we've found that remote job listings increased 52% in the last two years. And that growth is happening across a wider variety of career fields than most people realize."
Better yet, the number of fields offering work-from-home jobs is also growing too. "Remote work is prevalent in more obvious fields like customer service and computer/IT, but it's also regularly offered in fields like medical and health, education and training, sales, administrative, nonprofit, project management, accounting and finance, marketing, and more," says Reynolds. In other words, there's an opening out there for everyone. Here are the top companies hiring work-from-home employees right now (there are hundreds of jobs available!):
- UnitedHealth Group
- Robert Half International
- Thermo Fisher Scientific
- Connections Education
- Grand Canyon University
On UnitedHealth Group's career site alone, you'll find 129 telecommuting jobs covering consulting, business, and healthcare positions, while Conduent, a company that offers human resource services, learning services, and more, is currently offering 138 remote opportunities—and those are just a few of the possibilities.
