Remote work is becoming increasingly popular, and more and more companies recognize the benefits of offering their staff the option to work from their home or other locations outside their offices. New technologies make this easier than ever before. So, what does this mean for your career chances?
Your growing career chances with remote work
An important factor when doing your job search is usually the location – your location of residence and the location of the potential employer/client. This can be a real problem, especially for professionals living in rural areas, where the job market is usually thinner. Remote working opportunities enhance the search radius significantly, especially for IT professionals and those who utilize computers and the internet to perform their work.
Here are just a few examples of jobs that can be performed remotely:
- Network Administrator/Systems Administrator
- Project Manager
- Customer Service Representative
- Virtual Assistant
- Social Media Specialist
- Web Designer
- Payroll Specialist
- Copy Editor
- Workforce Scheduling Analyst
- Graphic Designer
The remote work job market also offers up new perspectives for people who need to be present at home during usual working hours, for example:
- Stay-at-home mom/dads
- Care-takers of family members
