Reduce stress, anxiety, and research for job seekers and those supporting them with this quick reference guide.  Some jobs are listed twice and marked with an * as they are classified under two or more industries.  This time of crisis is hard. You don’t want added frustration looking in circles. I followed links, websites and resources, to find legit work, weed out fraud, places with zero openings, places that only hire in other states, etc. to bring CALIFORNIANS REAL JOBS RIGHT NOW. 

Below is a listing of companies hiring remote and essential service workers in California for part, full time and contract work. Many of these companies are nationwide so this is a helpful resource for friends in other states too.  

For resources, tips and ideas for job seekers during COVID-19, listens to our Legit You podcast.  Find Legit You anywhere you listen to podcasts or a https://anchor.fm/jamie-beck4where you listen to podcasts or at https://anchor.fm/jamie-beck4

NOTES: 

  • What is a gig vs a job?  Gigs are normally part time and sporadic and have flexibility in how and when you do the job.  You are normally a contractor rather than an employee of the company. Some of the listing may be both or possibly misclassified.

  • While these links are to apply online, we recommend you call your local essential service providers, let them know you applied online and to watch for your application. This expedites the process.

  • Remote jobs sometimes list a city, but the description will clarify - telecommute or live anywhere in the US.  Telecommute or remote positions without a stipulation attached have been listed with the assumption you can live anywhere.

  • If you find a lead that is no longer good, not a viable job, or you have jobs to add, please email: legityou.jamie@legityou.com.  This page is generously being maintained by Legit You and we will do our best to keep it updated.  

  • We are offering a class through Cuesta Community College about job seeking during shelter in place with additional resources. 

UPDATE

We too have been impacted by COVID. We were generously providing this free to our community but now need to spend our time on paid projects we have found using this site.  No updates have been made as of 04/30/2020 so many of the jobs you will see are expired, HOWEVER you should still look for remote work at that employer by following. the link and searching for new opportunities.  We apologize for any inconvenience.  We would love to keep doing this......but just can't at this time.
