Want To Work From Home Part-Time? These Are The Top 35 Companies Hiring In 2016

 
The rise of Upwork, Fiverr, Freelancer.com and other gig companies shows how strong the demand is for part-time remote work opportunities.
But if you’ve seen those sketchy signs blaring ‘WORK FROM HOME!!! EARN THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS MONTHLY!’ on subway trains or local bulletin boards or even parking signs, you know that not all such opportunities are legitimate.

The good news is a good number of companies are looking for part-time workers — and that number is expected to rise in the coming years. Nearly one in five workers is part-time, and by 2020, Emergent Research and Intuit project that will increase to 40%.

FlexJobs, a firm that screens companies offering such opportunities (and charges users monthly, quarterly or yearly fees for its listings), has analyzed more than 40,000 companies offering part-time remote jobs in the first half of 2016 and come up with the top 35 to watch for such work.

Industries that topped the list include education, marketing and healthcare, but travel and technology also made it. Some of the more common part-time remote job titles areteacher, writer, speech pathologist, coder, interpreter, editor, and customer service representative.

Part-time work is a very appealing flexible work arrangement for all types of groups, not just millennials, but also working parents, semi-retirees, and others, and there are growing opportunities for part-time work,” said Sara Sutton Fell, founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “In fact, FlexJobs experienced a 31% increase in the number of remote part-time jobs posted in our database from 2014 to 2015, demonstrating this increased need from companies.”

Almost two-thirds of part-time workers choose to work part-time or freelance, challenging the notion that part-timers often can’t find full-time work.

Many of the companies also made FlexJobs’ 2016 Top 100 Companies for Remote Jobs list. Below are the top 35 companies for remote part-time work, based on FlexJobs listings in the first half of 2016.
