Today’s hot job market has many employers scrambling to fill positions. That means nearly anyone can land a job — even one that lets you work from home.
In fact, you don’t even need a college degree to work in your pajamas. FlexJobs, a subscription-based job board for remote and other flexible positions, recently identified 10 full-time jobs that let you work from home if you have at least an associate’s degree — or the equivalent years of job experience.
“Research into the trend of ‘downskilling’ by Payscale found that 50% of employers surveyed said that they’re hiring more employees with no formal college education and 69% said that their organization prioritizes skills over formal education or degrees when hiring new employees.”
The positions on the FlexJobs list — with average annual salary — are:
- Biomed technician: $49,437
- Care manager: $69,223
- Certified data abstrator: $54,045
- Client support analyst: $47,127
- Inpatient medical coder: $40,747
- Proposal manager: $76,821
- Public affairs specialist: $61,393
- Purchasing buyer: $53,760
- Clinical quality performance specialist: $57,267
- Senior consultant, data manager: $60,317
How to land a work-from-home job
Opportunities to work from home do not end with the list above. As we recently noted in “11 Surprising Jobs You Can Do From Home,” there are a bunch of jobs you can perform from the comfort of home.
There are also employers who specialize in offering these types of opportunities. You’ll find a list of them in “Which Companies Hire People to Work from Home?”
Finally, remember that if a work-from-home position sounds too good to be true, it’s time to do a little more digging. As we have noted:
“The idea of staying home and working in your pajamas can sound really appealing. But use caution when you’re searching for such work. That great-sounding work-from-home job offer may be an internet scam in disguise.”
