Work-from-home jobs are in high demand these days.
I mean, it seems like everyone (and their mother’s cousin’s uncle’s sister’s neighbor’s babysitter’s friend) wants a job that allows them the freedom to work from their living room sofa.
But there’s some fierce competition out there, and it can often be difficult to stand out in the pool of pajama-wearing, couch-lounging, just-rolled-out-of-bed workers.
So when we see jobs that have a location requirement — such as “must live within 100 miles of a hub site” — we know that a lucky few will have less competition for a particular job.
Such is the case with these two Capital One work-from-home customer service representative positions: They’re open to applicants in Florida and Virginia — within 100 miles of Tampa and Richmond, respectively.
(And if you don’t live in one of those two areas, don’t worry! We post plenty of opportunities on our Jobs page on Facebook. Be sure to stop by and give it a like so you can stay up to date!)
