I’m overwhelmed by the amount of emails I get daily from viewers who are looking for work-at-home opportunities. I’m not sure what it is about this last recession that has forced so many of you into this situation. Some have to stay at home to take care of kids or parents. Some of you are disabled. Some of you just want something part-time and commuting isn’t an option.
So this list is especially for you, those of you who write about your current situation and the challenges you face. It’s hard to read some of those emails, and I hope this list of companies will give you at least a head start on the road to getting hired.
