Professional using a computer.

Changes in technology and culture have paved the way for a rise in telecommuting jobs. That is, jobs that allow you to work from home full time. Many companies understand the benefit of employing professionals from around the country and opt for remote work instead of dealing with the cost and headache of moving someone across the country.

Some employers provide telecommuting jobs out of necessity, while others simply want the most qualified candidates, no matter where they're located. Regardless, some companies have more telecommuting opportunities than others. PayScale has tallied 10 top companies that list open telecommuting positions. These jobs are part of a diverse array of industries and career opportunities.

Working from home provides numerous benefits to those who have the opportunity. Travel and food expenses are far lower, and your commute time is however long it takes you to sit down at your desk in the morning. Successfully telecommuting requires good self-discipline since the pressure of working with co-workers in an office is nonexistent.

So if there aren't many job opportunities where you currently live, there might be a telecommuting opportunity in your field of expertise.
