Cisco, Humana, and Citizens Bank among top Fortune 500 companies hiring remote workers
Companies of all sizes, from small startups to major conglomerates, offer great opportunities for remote and flexible jobs. Fortune 500 companies, in many instances, are leading the way when it comes to integrating remote workers into their standard hiring practices, with many shifting to longer term remote work following the pandemic. Salesforce, for example, is allowing all employees to continue working from home until at least July 31, 2021. To showcase the major global companies embracing remote work, FlexJobs has highlighted 20 Fortune 500 companies that were also featured on FlexJobs Top 100 Companies for Remote Jobs in 2021 list.

FlexJobs offers career coaching and resume writing services to help job seekers throughout every stage of their job search. To help job seekers land a work-from-home job this year, FlexJobs’ career coaches also suggest using these 7 job search strategies:
1. Know What You Want
Perhaps the most important part of formulating a job search strategy is to figure out not just what kind of job you want, but what type—full-time, part-time, freelance, remote, a combination of on-site and remote, etc.
What type of company do you want to work for—a nonprofit, an agency, a firm in a specific industry, a small company, a large corporation, etc.? Do you need a traditional 9-to-5 schedule, or do you want alternative hours where you work late or overnight? Do you want to work on the weekends, or only Monday through Friday?
