Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestmail

Remember 20 years ago, when going to work always meant leaving the house? Or even 10 years ago, when telecommuting was barely a thing? These days, office work is so 2007.

If you like the idea of part-time work (and extra income) but can’t feasibly work outside the home, you might try looking into jobs at one of these seven companies who routinely hire employees for work-from-home jobs.

1. JetBlue

JetBlue Airways occasionally hires full-time work-at-home reservations agents in Utah. Training is in Salt Lake City, after which employees work from home. Requirements include:

  • High school diploma or General Education Development (GED) diploma.
  • Two years of customer service experience.
  • Able to type 25 words per minute.
  • Knowledge of Microsoft Office Suite and Internet Explorer.
  • Flexible and able to work at any time, including nights, weekends and holidays.

2. VIPKid

VIPKid (and similar companies SayABC, QKids and Magic Ears) hires work-from-home tutors who practice English with Chinese students. Because of the time difference between the U.S. and China, tutors usually work late at night or in the very early morning, which makes the schedule ideal for parents with kids still at home. Learn more at VIPKid’s website. 

3. BYU-Pathway Worldwide online teaching

If you have a master’s degree (or bachelor’s for certain postings), you might consider applying to be an online instructor with BYU-Pathway Worldwide. Online instructors typically work about 10 hours per week. The hiring process includes applying to a course-specific listing, a digital interview and a two-week online training course.
