companies hiring now

When I started my work-from-home journey almost nine years ago, I searched everywhere to find legitimate online jobs. Even when I found something that sounded good, it was kind of disappointing when I found out that they were not hiring at that time.

Though there are many work-at-home options now, knowing which companies are hiring makes it easier for you to apply and land the job quickly.

So I decided to make a list of work-at-home companies that are currently hiring in different categories like transcription, customer service, chat agents, etc.

Hopefully, this list will help you decide which ones to apply to and help you get the job. Please note that, to my best knowledge, I have researched and found out that these companies are presently hiring unless the positions get filled quickly.
