The companies listed below regularly hire individuals for home-based positions – some positions are freelance, some are independent contracting, and others are full-time gigs with full benefits. While all companies are believed to be legit, they have only been soft checked, meaning that I did a quick search to see if there were any negative reviews or ratings. As is always the case, you need to do your due diligence (research the opportunity extensively) prior to enrolling in any business opportunity or applying for any job.
