The most common question I’m asked about finding work-at-home jobs is, “How do I know it’s legitimate?” It’s a valid question, as there are many unscrupulous people in the world ready to steal your money and work-at-home dreams. Fortunately, telecommuting has become a popular way for many big-name companies to save money and hire the most qualified employees no matter where they live.
Here is a list of companies you’ve likely heard of that frequently hire home-based employees.
Note: The links may or may not take you directly to work-at-home jobs. In some cases, there may not be current openings. In other cases, you’ll need to do a search using “work at home” (in quotes), telecommute, virtual or remote to find available home-based jobs.
