Today’s post is a special one that I hope you’ll refer to time and time again. It’s one that’s all about remote-job companies…the ones that have a nice selection of jobs you can do from home – or wherever – because that is the culture they have adopted.
Wouldn’t it be cool if you stumbled upon a remote job with a company that doesn’t have a ton of other applicants clamoring for that one opening?
But how is that possible? I mean, there are so many blogs out there talking about the latest work at home job openings on any given day, everyone puts in their application.
Could it be you don’t know that there are a lot of companies who support the remote work culture, companies that don’t get a whole lot of attention ? Most of them have been around for years, a lot of them are start-up companies, and some are well-known, big names.
The remote work environment is becoming more attractive to companies of all sizes. Not only because of lower overhead costs, because methods of online communication have become so easy, it is almost preferred. Companies can easily keep in touch with their employees, virtual water coolers can be set up so employees can have that comradery they need, and time tracking software is the norm.
That’s great news for us ! So, for anyone who says there’s no such thing as legitimate remote jobs, I say this: being location-independent is now easier than ever.
Let’s get to ’em
