Find a Job During The COVID-19 Pandemic - Work From Home

If you have been laid off or furloughed, and the COVID-19 "Stay at Home" policies remain, it might be helpful to identify, prepare, apply and obtain a "virtual" or "stay at home" job. This page has been designed to help you during this turbulent time. Please let me know your feedback so that I can enhance this page as needed. Identify and obtain a job - yet stay at home and stay safe. Please stay strong as you move forward.

This page will take you through 6 steps to identify and find job listings for virtual and work-from-home jobs. After you identify the job you want you will find resources to prepare for the job, and gain access to many job-specific resources.

Step 1: Identify a Job(s): Use our links to identify virtual jobs and/or work-at-home jobs.

Step 2: Enter a Job Keyword: Enter a keyword related to the job you identified from Step 1. For example, if you found a work from home job as a "Customer Service Representative", you might enter "customer". This will identify (from a listing of over 58,000 specific jobs) all jobs that contain the word "customer". You can enter in more than one word. For example, you can also enter "customer service" to get more specific results.

Step 3: Select a Job: Based on the keyword you entered above, you will be presented with a listing of occupations. The list may be quite long. There are two ways you might like to use this list:
1) Filter - As you enter a word, you will filter (limit) the list of occupations below
2) Browse the list (Don't Filter) - You can simply browse the list of occupations. There may be many that you might never have considered. This may help you to discover jobs that might be of interest.

Once you have identified an occupation of interest, simply click on it.

Step 4: Identify Additional Jobs: Based on the keyword you entered above, you will be presented with a listing of additional jobs currently available. They may or may not be listed as "virtual" or "work from home", yet it is worth it to contact the hiring companies to see if this is an option.
