I get frequent emails from readers asking me about part time work from home. There are a lot of different reasons people prefer part time over full time. One of the most common is having kids at home, while other people can't do it because they work another job and aren't able to put in 40 hours.
So today, I dug through open work at home job leads to find those companies with part-time openings now. Note that even if this post becomes dated, some of these companies have ongoing openings. So if the job closed now, you can always check back later.
Good luck if you apply to any of these.

This company is hiring now for work at home law enforcement transcription. They claim you can do this to fit your own schedule whether you need to do it very part-time or even full-time. It is required that you have prior verbatim, multi-speaker transcription experience, and their job listing page claims that the most successful candidates have experience doing law enforcement transcription or court reporting.
The job listing page has a list of several requirements, but you must be a US citizen and you must be able to pass a criminal background check in order to qualify.
#4 – Appen – Social Media Evaluators

#5 – Universe – Customer Support
Open Worldwide. Ideal candidates have prior experience in Customer Service OR Tech, but the position is entry level. Hiring for both full time and part-time positions. Salary is unknown.
#6 – Crowd Content – Product Description Writers
While this is extremely low-paying writing work (starting at 3.2 cents per word), you have the flexibility to do as few as ten product descriptions per week, so this qualifies as one of these part time jobs from home. The product descriptions are only 50 to 60 words in length, so doing these quickly is a possibility. Crowd Content pays every other Friday provided you've earned at least $10 for the pay period. No prior professional writing experience is necessary, but they do want writers who have a good understanding of AP Style.
#7 – Chegg – Online Academic Tutors
Chegg is usually looking for online tutors. You must have a Facebook account to apply. Chegg makes it possible for you to tutor middle, high school, or even college students in subjects you have familiarity with. Also, it's possible to turn this into part time work because it's permissible to work as much or little as you want.
#8 – 3Play Media – English & Spanish Transcript Editors
3Play Media needs English and Spanish transcript editors to work remotely. You can work whenever you want (provided there is work available), which makes it possible for this to be a part-time position. This is US only. Your pay is project-based; equivalent to $10 – $30 per hour, depending on your efficiency.
#9 – Daily Transcription – General Transcribers
Daily Transcription has clients in the entertainment, corporate, legal, and academic industries. They claim they're always hiring transcribers to do either full or part time jobs from home. While I'm not 100 percent certain, it looks as though they may consider applicants who live both in and outside the United States.
#10 – Alchemic Dream – Customer Support, Community Management, and More.
This company has a variety of remote positions open. In the application, you are given the option to select if you'd prefer full-time or part-time work, so this indicates they are open to people needing part-time hours even though the positions don't specifically say what is required.
