While most of our jobs lists do feature a couple international opportunities, we heard your feedback about wanting more international opportunities! December’s work-from-home jobs list includes a new batch of companies you can apply to, all of which are hiring employees who live in Canada or the U.K. Many of these jobs are also available in the U.S. and other countries around the globe.

When you live with a disability, chronic illness or mental health condition, working remotely might be the one accommodation you need to get back to work. One report found that 7 percent of people with disabilities in the U.S. used the option to work from home as a reasonable accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Not to mention, research keeps telling us that most employees get a boost from the flexibility of virtual careers.

So whether you’re a tech genius, a marketing maven, customer champion, teacher, interpreter or more, these companies may offer you the chance to flex your job skills from the comfort of your own home. Check them out and let us know how your job search is going!
