Work from anywhere in the world: 10 companies hiring remote employees
Everyone at least occasionally thought about giving up office life forever and working without leaving home (or without leaving the beach). As of 2017, according to the latest data from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, 3,4 million employees in the United States mainly worked at home, and since then this number has probably increased. Writes about this CNBC.
For those who are interested in remote work, it is worth knowing that the vast majority of employers (95%) still make demands on the location of the employee.
And these requirements - whether it be a specific city, state or region of the country - must be met so that the employee can visit the office of the employer for personal meetings in order to facilitate timely communication in a specific time zone.
Only 5% of job vacancies do not have a location requirement.
According to Bree Weiler Reynolds, career development manager and trainer at FlexJobs, the best way to look for a remote job is to find out first which companies work remotely. These organizations operate without a physical office or headquarters and rely on a set of digital collaboration tools (such as online messaging, video conferencing, document sharing, project management programs).
FlexJobs has recently identified the top companies in its database to publish the largest number of remote jobs in 2019. According to Reynolds, these organizations cover various fields of activity and industries. But companies specializing in certain areas, including computers and IT, writing and editing, project management, marketing, software development and training, usually work best in a remote structure.
Applicants interested in these roles should highlight the qualities that demonstrate their strong communication and teamwork skills, as well as comfort in working with technologies and previous experience in remote work.
“Even if the company does not have open vacancies in your area, you can consider contacting their HR team or even the CEO, if it is a small company, and introduce yourself,” says Reynolds.
