Looking for a Job During the COVID-19 Crisis? These Remote (and Onsite!) Employers are Hiring!

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, over 10 million Americans filed for unemployment in March alone — a record number. While the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act has promised to dole out an additional $600 a week to the unemployed and a one-time payment of $1,200, many Americans are still struggling.

However, remote jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic have brought work-from-home opportunities to the forefront of the employee-employer relationship. Although the circumstances are unfortunate, remote work opportunities have become a viable employment option for the unemployed or underemployed, even for those who had never considered virtual work in the past. If you’re searching for work, here are some companies offering remote jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic.
