Work from home jobs aren't hard to come by, but finding legit ones in a sea of spam can be tough. You all know I LOVE working from home, but what I do isn't a job that pays by the hour. Blogging can be an amazing source of income, but it's like any empire… it takes time to build it from scratch. I 110% recommend blogging for pretty much everyone, for the fun and of course for the money: I've made $50K+ not even half way into the year and have worked less than 5 hours a week for the most part. If you want to get started with a blog, head over to how to start a blog. If you want to start working from home and collecting a paycheck right away, keep reading this post.
I have a few requirements before I add to this list. Each job:
— Must be legit. I know someone who works for (or has worked for) each company on the list.
— Must pay at least $10/hr or more. Many start at $15.
— Must be an actual job that pays hourly, not a “gig” that pays once in a while.
— Must be able to be done from home!
Many of these jobs also offer benefits such as a 401K. If you're looking to work from home, whether it's to supplement your income or provide for your entire family, these work at home jobs will get you well on your way.

17 Companies That Will Hire You to Work from Home
Most work from home positions are customer service related. There are a few exceptions, and some will be more tech-related (like with Apple), but for the most part they're all similar. You need a quiet background (so put the dogs in another room and wait til the kids are in bed), and a fast, secure internet connection. Some companies require more specific equipment than others, so be sure to inquire about that before applying.

Before applying for any jobs, create a simple resume highlighting any skills you may have that would be relevant to the job. Most of these jobs are customer service related so keep that in mind.
If you're going to be successful working from home, you'll learn to be resourceful! That means looking at each of these companies in depth. Follow them on social media, google them, talk to others who have worked for them in the past if you are able. The more you know about a company and their goals and culture, the better chance you have of getting hired.
