8 – Bonus Tip – Check FlexJobs For Even More Well-Known Companies Hiring Writers To Work at Home
FlexJobs is one of my favorite sites to use for finding remote jobs and learning about new companies that hire remotely. Most of what I see there when I check the listings pays well above minimum wage and are known companies.
The great thing about FlexJobs is that they guarantee ALL listings are scam-free. They list hundreds of jobs — all of which are either remote or flexible in nature — five days per week. There are also no ads on the site.
Because there are no ads, they do charge a membership fee since that is the only way they can see a return on their job-searching efforts. But it's cheap — $14.95 a month. And you can get a 30% discount if you use promo code AFFILPROMO.
If you sign up and don't like it, it's very easy to cancel right away so you are not billed again for the following month.
Go here to check out FlexJobs.
