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 common reason for desiring part-time work is having kids at home. Then there are others who need part-time 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. If the job closed now, just check back later.
Good luck if you apply to any of these!
