Finding a great work-from-home job

Now that you know about some of the best-paying positions, it’s time to find companies that are hiring for work-from-home roles. You’ll find a list in “The Top 15 Companies Hiring for Fully Remote Jobs.”

If you find a great remote gig, you’ll need to prepare for working from home. Kathy Kristof — a former Los Angeles Times financial journalist — has worked at home for 30 years, and she has found a great balance between working and parenting.

As we report on Kristof in “7 Common Challenges of Working From Home — and How to Master Them“:

“This allowed her to mesh parenthood with career, to the point of being able to volunteer at her children’s school. But this was possible only because she held specific work hours — in a home office with the door shut. When her children were small, she hired a nanny.
Anyone who plans to work at home also needs to create productive work routines, Kristof says.”
