TOP 10 websites to find a work-from-home job reviewed
Working from home is quickly becoming a reality for many people in 2020.
It might have seemed like a joke just a few months ago, but with the new threat of coronavirus, more and more companies are adopting this business model.
According to CNN, major companies like Facebook, Twitter, Slack and others are planning to shift into a work from home system FOREVER.
If you are looking for a work-from-home job - but don’t know how to find it - you are in the right place.
Keep reading below to find out the TOP 10 websites where you can find a work from home job.
FlexJobs is one of the biggest platforms to find work-from-home jobs.
There are more than 30’000 jobs listed on the website from all over the world. You can filter by industry, employer and location.
Now I know what you are thinking - Location? Wasn’t it supposed to be an online jobs platform? YES - but - for some online jobs you have to be located in a certain country for different reasons:
You might have to show up at the office sometimes
Also, FlexJob is NOT free to use, their membership starts at $6 per week up until $50 per year.
To sum up, FlexJob is great if you don’t mind spending a little money and it can offer a great amount of job postings, especially if you are based in the US.
I personally prefer Remoters.net as a website to find work from home.
First of all, it’s completely free.
Plus, it’s very easy to apply and you can search jobs by industry. Remoters offers a variety of online jobs that you can work from any place in the world (unless specified) and does not just focus on the US market.
On the down side, there are only a limited number of jobs posted on Remoters compared to other sites, but it’s worth checking it out.
Remotive is very similar to Remoters (not only in the name).
The best thing about it is that it’s also free of charge.
They have a pretty wide selection of online jobs mostly from Europe and the US.
If you live outside these zones, it might be hard for you to find a job on Remotive.
What is great about Remotive is that (if you don’t live in the US) you can select the option of “Hide US-only jobs” to facilitate your search.
AngelList is great to find an online job for startups. If you are looking for this kind of experience, this is the site to use.
The only “annoying” thing is that you have to sign up to access the list of jobs, but they don’t ask for any payment or membership fee.
Also the job descriptions are very clean with valuable information and salary transparency.
WeWorkRemotely.com was one of the first online jobs platforms to be established.
It’s very easy to use, jobs are listed divided into categories and it’s clear how to apply.
The only drawback of WWR is that their majority of listings are for IT jobs, such as web development, software development, technical support etc…
If you are not an IT genius, they offer listings for customer support jobs but not much else. However, it’s worth checking it out!
This website has a huge amount of job listings available for digital nomads. You can find online jobs in almost every industry, even nursing! (not sure how that would work though...)
You don’t have to pay any fee to use their services and they even have a nice blog to check out for advice.
It is not super easy to navigate though, when you click on a job it usually sends you to another window hosted by a different website, however - aside from this - it’s a great way to find a work-from-home job.
Teleperformance is not only a website, it’s a company. What Teleperformance does is similar to a hiring agency, basically it connects talents with other companies who need specific services from them.
It offers a great variety of work from home jobs in the customer service industry.
Who doesn’t know Amazon? The good news is that this giant offers remote job openings all around the world!
Their listing is pretty varied and you can find all kinds of positions.
The only drawback - in my opinion - is that most job openings have pretty harsh requirements in order to apply. For some positions (not even managerial) you need something like more than 10 years of experience in the same field.... crazy
However, if you do have the experience, you can definitely find a great job here!
This website is great to find an online occupation regardless of where you are in the world.
It’s fairly easy to navigate and search for an opening. Completely free to use for job seekers, it’s definitely worth the time!
Workew is fairly easy to navigate and you can filter jobs to find exactly what you are looking for.
It’s great for people all over the world as it offers jobs for all kinds of locations and it’s totally free!
You can even sign up to receive notifications on twitter about new job postings.
So this is the end of my list of TOP 10 websites to find a work-from-home job.
There are many more websites out there but these are the one that I tested and would recommend.
