Looking for a little extra cash on the side? You can’t do much better than a part-time job that lets you work from home.

Fortunately, many companies are hiring for such positions right now, according to FlexJobs, a subscription-based job board for remote and other flexible positions.

In fact, during the first six months of the year, 30 companies were particularly active in advertising such positions, according to an analysis of more than 50,000 companies in the FlexJobs database.

In its analysis, FlexJobs looked for companies hiring for positions that are either partially or fully remote, and that required fewer than 35 hours per week of work.

The top 10 companies hiring for such jobs are:

  1. Landi English
  2. VocoVision
  3. Grand Canyon University
  4. U.S. Department of Commerce
  5. Cozymeal
  6. Supporting Strategies
  7. Robert Half International
  8. GreatAuPair
  9. Rosetta Stone
  10. Kaplan

You can find the full list of companies on FlexJobs’ blog.

According to FlexJobs:

“Education and healthcare are among the top industries represented on this list. The jobs these companies are hiring for range in experience from entry-level through senior-level management and have varied educational requirements.”

Finding the right work-from-home job

While the companies on the FlexJobs list are trying to fill part-time roles, full-time jobs that let you work from home also are available. And some of them are unexpected, as we revealed in “11 Surprising Jobs You Can Do From Home.”

In that story, we also highlight ways to find and land a home-based job.

Finally, if you do land a work-from-home job, you likely will need to make some adjustments to help you succeed. They include mastering the challenge of setting up a professional workspace. As we have reported:

“Most remote workers don’t have an employer investing in the right equipment on their behalf. They do their jobs from living-room armchairs, restaurant tables, airports and other places that aren’t easy on the body. Over time, these ergonomically incorrect spaces can spark back pain and other health problems.”
