If you've clicked on this article, you're obviously interested in a remote position and the chance to work from home. I'm also going to assume you don't work from home yet, you have a job that doesn't allow it, or you're one of the unlucky ones who aren't offered the privilege to work from home.
It can be frustrating.
After all, you're trying to craft a lifestyle for you and your family. You don't want to be married to your work -- and be a slave to the day job. Totally get it.
But, work at home jobs are scams you find on Craig's List, right? Or they're at least incredibly difficult to find, correct?
Wrong. And wrong again.
It is possible to work from home and find that dream remote job. Fortunately, I had the chance to pick the brain of Brie Reynolds, who just happens to be the Senior Career Specialist at FlexJobs. She spoke about the 14 most common remote jobs (and how much they pay) along with FlexJobs' free guide for finding a remote job.
Let's start with what kinds of remote jobs are available out there. Brie provided some interesting answers to my questions as you'll see below. Time to get on the ball and start seeing if you qualify for one of these exciting positions!
As Brie explains:
"Do your research! It's vital to know what's being offered in your career field when it comes to remote work. Research your job title with keywords like remote, telecommuting, and virtual to see if current listings are available. Look up companies in your industry or career field that have strong remote work reputations. The more research you do at the beginning, the better off you'll be when you're ready start applying!"
Well, there you have it. A crash course in not only how to land a dream remote job -- but an inside look into the top jobs and what they pay!
I know. I know. You're welcome.
And, thanks, Brie and the folks at FlexJobs for the outstanding information. It's a huge help to know what's available for us as we navigate how best to provide for our growing families!
