In this article, I’ll show you the companies hiring the most 100% remote jobs as per the positions posted on FlexJobs between January 1, 2021, and August 31, 2021. I’ll also share some job advice from money expert Clark Howard.

FlexJobs is a job search website that focuses on identifying legitimate job postings, but it’s not free. The service charges $14.95/month because a real person reviews every single job posting to help you avoid bogus listings and scams.

Applying for a Remote Job? Consider This
Clark says the flexibility of a remote job is not the only thing you need to consider. There can be a downside if your employer provides the computer you use for your job at home.
He says many employers install spyware, also known as “tattleware” or “bossware,” on computers that they lend to employees, allowing companies to snoop around on the devices.
“These software programs that the employers are putting on company-issued computers give them the ability to do all kinds of things,” he says on his podcast.
So Clark has two tips of advice if you take a remote position that requires you to use a company-issued computer.
Cover Up Your Camera
Clark says you never know who could be looking at you through your computer’s webcam. “There may be somebody peering in watching you at a time you don’t want them watching you,” he says.
That’s why he says you should cover over your camera most times.
“I’m a big fan of you taping over your camera until you’re in one of those online video meetings,” he says.
Be Careful With Social Media
“Don’t ever use a company-issued machine or any company network for any content that might not look so appropriate to an employer,” he says.
“With all this spyware that companies are using, they are going to know what you’ve been up to on that machine,” Clark says. “It’s their computer, and they can do almost anything invasive on it involving you.”
