In an effort to secure the best talent on the market, more and more companies are expanding their applicant pool to include professionals without a traditional college degree.
Job search site Glassdoor compiled a list of who some of these companies are, with top employers like Apple, Google and IBM making the cut. Recently, FlexJobs examined that list to see which companies are also in their database with open positions that allow employees to work from anywhere. (FlexJobs notes that while some of the available work-from-home positions at these companies do require a college degree, there are many open positions that don’t.)
Take a look at the list below to see which flexible companies you should consider working for if you don’t have a four-year college education:
