How to apply for new work from home job that’s in high demand

Working from home became the go-to mode of labor for much of the job market during the COVID-19 pandemic. But now, as the pandemic shifts in new directions, many are wondering whether this remote work trend is here to stay.

From what we can tell, signs point to yes. Not only does working from home give employers less overhead to worry about, but it also helps workers stay safe from potential exposure to the virus. Tap or click here to see how to get yourself started working from home.

With work-from-home gigs still in high demand, many job seekers are struggling to find openings as the new economy takes shape. Luckily, at least one company is giving workers new opportunities by allowing them to turn their home office into a remote call center. We’ll show you how, plus, we’ll connect you with 19 companies that are currently hiring remote workers.

NexRep is making it easy to find remote work

Staffing agencies are often a great starting point for job seekers. These companies typically connect workers with employers looking to bulk up their crews, and they can easily transition workers to new employers once contracts expire.

But with in-person jobs at an all-time low, remote staffing agencies like NexRep are leading the pack in bringing remote workers and employers together. According to CNBC, NexRep has helped companies like Teledoc expand their workforce by 40% since the start of the pandemic.

What kind of jobs is NexRep helping people find? Call center jobs, that’s what. But unlike traditional call centers, which typically reside in unremarkable office buildings, NexRep allows workers to use their own office or living room as their base of operations. It’s an easy way for workers to get back on their feet without ever leaving home.

Remote call center work offers a good balance of safety and pay, with most workers making well above the federal minimum wage. Starting pay is usually in the range of $10 hourly, with most workers averaging between $12-$14 hourly. This is similar to the pay most essential workers are getting these days, but with none of the risk of infection.

It also offers parents with children an opportunity to keep a closer eye on their family while schools remain closed.

To get started, all you’ll need to do is visit NexRep’s official website and select Agents to apply. You’ll be asked to provide your personal information and resume, and you’ll be able to enter any additional preferences like hours as you progress through the application.

NexRep’s staff continues to grow, and although the pay may not be as high as some of the pre-pandemic rates, it’s a good opportunity to keep the money rolling in while you look for additional work.

Bonus: Which companies are hiring remote workers right now?

NexRep isn’t the only company looking for remote workers right now, but it is one of the easiest to get started with. But if you want to cast your net as wide as possible, you can’t go wrong with applying to several of these lucrative remote positions compiled by FlexJobs. Even if just one of these companies makes you an offer, that’s a win for you.
