While we battle through the unknowns of this pandemic, people across the country are struggling to find work. While you may already have a career in mind, perhaps looking for a job that allows you to work remotely as its main aspect would be a good option.

According to Forbes, "five of the most popular work-from-home jobs include accountant, customer service representative, project manager, nurse and writer. Some of the fastest-growing remote career categories include art and creative, bookkeeping, k-12, graphic design and translation."

In January, Forbes published the Top 100 companies for remote jobs. Among those included Appen, Lionbridge, Working Solutions and even Dell!

It's safe to say that there are a vast number of options for remote working, but all of it can be a bit intense. This is why we compiled a list of websites that will make that process a little easier.

1. FlexJobs

FlexJobs helps you search for remote work jobs that are full-time, part time and even freelance! With this website you can even put in your schedule and find a career that fits you specifically. What else is great about this tool is that they even have articles that help guide you through finding a job. Recently, they even put out a live article that's constantly updating with companies that are hiring for remote work currently.

That article can be found here.

2. Still Hiring

One of the confusing things about this time is that you may be applying for positions at company's that are on hiring freezes. Still Hiring eliminates that by showing you all of the places that are still hiring amid the pandemic.

You can search by keyword, country and job type. Some of the job types include finance, sales and customer service!

3. Remote Work Summit

The Summit may have passed, but this group has put together a ton of resources to help you navigate through working-from-home. This includes remote job sites, a list of companies hiring for remote work and freelance opportunities.

They've got a list of free resources AND to be even more helpful, they have a list of all the other remote job seeking sites you can use!

4. Outsourcely

This resource is great for looking for full-time remote jobs and the thing that makes them a bit different than the others is that you can search for work based on specific skills. Looking for a job in writing? They've got you covered. Design? Business Services? They've got you there as well!

5. Skip the Drive

Skip the Drive helps make the job search a lttle quicker by using a filtering system! You can search for everything by category, date, relevance, etc. The other great thing about their service is that you don't even have to register to use it!
