If you want to work from home and have been looking for a remote job for a while, there’s a new list of the top 25 companies that are taking applications right now!

FlexJobs: These 25 companies are hiring for part-time, remote jobs in 2018 

“Working part-time can be a great solution for many people, such as working parents, caregivers, semi-retirees, career changers, and others who for whatever reason don’t find a full-time schedule appealing,” said Sara Sutton, founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “The good news is that we have seen significant growth in the depth and variety of opportunities for professional remote, part-time jobs over the past few years.”

There’s a lot of competition for these work-at-home jobs. When shares job alerts for remote positions with companies like Amazon, the ads are usually taken down within a few days.

The online retail giant didn’t make FlexJobs’ top 25 list, but companies in the education, health care and human resources fields are well represented — and they’re hiring employees from entry-level through senior-level management.

With so many people vying for remote jobs, be sure that you meet all the requirements (including education) before you apply:

  1. Scheduling: Full-time or part-time? Days, nights or weekends? If the shift is specified in the job posting, you need to be available to work at those times.
  2. Location: Some 100% virtual jobs are only open to people who live in specific states.
  3. Technical: Do you have a strong internet connection? It’s a basic requirement for many work-from-home jobs, even those that provide other equipment like a computer and headset.

Job scams: What you need to know 

When applying for remote jobs, beware of scams! FlexJobs is unlike most job search websites that you’ve probably used in the past because it charges a membership fee starting at $14.95 for a month.

The big upside is that it filters out the junk postings — there are only legitimate opportunities.

However, if you’re using other search engines, FlexJobs says avoiding two common phrases will reduce the number of scams you see in the results:

Keywords to avoid 

  • Work-from-home
  • Work-at-home

Keywords to use instead

  • Telecommuting
  • Virtual
  • Remote job
  • Distributed team
