These 20 companies are looking to fill part-time, work-from-home jobs


Interested in bringing home some extra cash without dragging yourself into a stuffy office? Popular job search site FlexJobs made a cheat sheet you might want to consult, in which they share the 20 companies that posted the most part-time, work-from-home jobs on their site between August 1 and October 1 of this year.

Whether you want to work a few extra hours each week to get ahead of holiday shopping costs, you’re unable to commute into an office, or you love the idea of a 1-minute commute, there’s probably an opportunity that fits your skills and interests.

In order to narrow down their list, FlexJobs defined a part-time job as one that was fewer than 35 hours per week, in accordance with the Bureau of Labor Statistics. And they counted a job as remote if a worker could work from home “at least some of the time.”

Did they find that there’s more opportunity in one career sector versus another? It seems that if you’re dedicated to education, opportunities come up often at organizations that teach everything from foreign languages to nursing to test preparation. At Kaplan, for example, recent postings include ESL teachers, adjunct nursing faculty, academic consultants and financial planning instructors.

But beyond education, you can snatch up a part-time gig doing just about anything, from sales to recruiting to data entry to bookkeeping. Robert Half International, for example, a well-known staffing and consulting firm, ranked in the top 10 for recent part-time, remote job postings. They post a wide variety of positions for their clients,  including front desk coordinators, social media specialists, accountants and web developers.
