Penny Hoarder Introduces Work-From-Home Jobs Portal

Thanks to blessings like faster Internet speeds, cloud computing, a bevy of team communication platforms, and other technologies, the need to report to a physical office building is diminishing for a number of workers around the world. Moreover, whether they just want to skip the commute or have desires to become digital nomads, there’s also been a growing demand for remote work jobs that can be done from just about anywhere there’s a solid WiFi connection. Given this reality, I’ve noticed that the popular personal finance site The Penny Hoarder and others have really made an effort to bring people’s attention to some of the types of work-from-home positions out there by writing about them frequently. Now the site has taken that idea to the next level, creating a new tool to help lead those seeking work-from-home employment options in the right direction.

Dubbed the WFH (short for “work-from-home”) Jobs Portal, this tool allows users to essentially search Penny Hoarder articles reformated to act more like traditional job listings. Jobs seekers can search by their location and/or keywords to help narrow down the results as well. Naturally, each listing also includes plenty of important details along with a link to apply for the gig online.

Another helpful feature of the WFH Jobs Portal is that certain listings will include a variety of icons on the main search page denoting some of the perks or drawbacks of a certain position. For example, a heart icon indicates that the available position offers benefits and a clock icon conveys that the job allows for flexible hours. Meanwhile a phone icon lets you know that there will be some telephone work involved in the listed position.

I should note that, at this point, it’s unclear how frequently Penny Hoarder will be updating this tool or how many jobs will be listed at one time. Similarly, considering I’m already gainfully employed, I haven’t actually utilized this tool to apply for a job — I’ve only poked around enough to get a feel for the interface and experience. With that said, I think they’re off to a great start with the templates they’ve built and suspect that the portal will play a large role in how they cover future job openings and opportunities. So, if you’re looking for a job you can do in your spare time or have your eyes set on a full-time career you can maintain from anywhere, the WFH Jobs Portal could be a great first step in making that dream a reality.

Lots of people re now considering work from home jobs. With just a laptop and an internet connection, you can enjoy working while having a vacation. Thankfully there are now websites that makes job search easier.

Thanks for the info. Work from home is getting more popular whether as a sidehustle or full time career.
