Work-From-Home Ideas

Are you looking for full- or part-time employment that allows you to work from home? Millions of people worldwide enjoy the perk of being able to earn a living as a home-based employee. However, it still takes research and patience to find and land a work-from-home job that fits your needs. Before you start your search, ask yourself this question: Am I ready to work from home (click here for more information to help you answer this question).

At A. J. Baron Communications, we appreciate the many benefits of maintaining a virtual office that allow our contributors to work remotely. Most people have to work, but we don't think work should be all-consuming. We value work-life balance and flexibility and in return are rewarded with creative, hard-working, dedicated employees who enjoy what they do. That benefits everyone, but most importantly, our employees and our clients.

On this page, you'll find lists of some of the companies that utilize remote employees (also "work-from-home employees," "virtual employees," "teleworkers" and "telecommuters"). A short description  and direct link accompanies each entry. There is no guarantee that any of the companies listed on this page still have unfilled positions or that you will land one of the openings. However, they are a place to start your search, get a feel for the process and learn more about the types of positions that are typically available.

Please be aware: you should NEVER be asked to pay to apply for a job or take a survey (or any of the other opportunities discussed on this site). There are exceptions, such as a fee for joining a job search site like Flexjobs (they list thousands of vetted remote work opportunities). Be diligent when looking into opportunities and use common sense, especially when an opportunity seems to good to be true. Keep in mind, however, you may be expected to provide your own basic equipment (e.g., computer, anti-virus software, internet access, printer, cell phone) to be eligible for a position.

Good luck!
