300+ Legitimate Companies that Pay You to Work At Home
UPDATE (9/5/16): This list was recently updated from 192+ to 300
When I first wanted to work-at-home, my options were limited to technical work, sales, writing, day care and direct sales. While each of these options still exist and are good income choices, the opportunities to make money from home are now vast and wide. Below you’ll find a list of
192 300+ resources that hire home-based workers or will pay you to help them with tasks. Not all the resources listed below are jobs and not all will pay a full-time income. Some will give you mad money and free stuff. But all offer a way to make money either on the side or as a career.
This is just a sampling of all the work-at-home opportunities that are available. You can get over 400 work-at-home resources in Jobs Online: How to Find and Get Hired to a Work-At-Home Job. Grab a copy at Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
Special Note: This list includes work-at-home jobs, freelance/contract work, and extra income opportunities (i.e. surveys). It is listed in alphabetical order by 29 categories.
