Desperately looking for legitimate way to make money working from home without starting your own business? I’ve got the hookup, and it won’t cost you a penny!
Like many parents, finding a real work-at-home job was my American Dream. Rising gasoline prices, daycare costs and other financial hurdles really impacted my ability to find and maintain lucrative employment while juggling a family.
As I searched for something I could do at home, it became more apparent that I was not the only person looking to trade my commute and cubicle for PJs and a laptop. Forums were flooded with individuals who were desperately looking for decent-paying home-based jobs that didn’t involve taking surveys or stuffing envelopes. There were dozens of scam sites promising hot leads for a small price, but nobody was delivering.
These days, thankfully, the corporate landscape is looking very different. Technology advances have enabled much of the work that powers many prominent businesses to be done remotely; and fortunately, more and more companies are recognizing the advantages of allowing its workers the freedom and flexibility to work off site.
Whether full-time employment or contract work, telecommuting is no longer an elusive dream, but a commonplace reality for nearly 43% of Americans per a 2018 Gallup poll.
A recent CNBC article cited statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau claiming that remote workers often earn more than their commuting colleagues, which makes perfect sense when you consider the elimination of overhead for the employer and employee alike.
Finding legitimate jobs that you can work from home is easier today than it’s ever been. Below is a current list of companies that are hiring right now. Many of these jobs don’t require a college degree or any special certification and most, if not all, of these companies are nationally and internationally recognized award-winning organizations. So if you’re ready to get working today, take a gander through the list below and find the perfect job for you!
