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.

#5 – Konsus – Content Writing, Graphic Design, & More
Konsus offers freelance positions across many different industries, and you can “work from anywhere” so it may be open worldwide. Most of the jobs listed require a minimum of 25 hours a week, so this can still be considered part-time.
#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.

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.

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.
