How do I look for a remote job?

Answered by Kristin Wilson, relocation consultant

The first thing to do when deciding where to look for a job is to decide what you want the nature of your work to be like. For example:

  1. Do you want to keep your same job, but just go remote?
  2. Do you want to work for the same company or find another comparable position at a remote company?
  3. Do you want to monetize a skill you already have?
  4. Does freelancing appeal to you?
  5. Do you want to do something completely new?
  6. Do you want to run your own business or work for someone else?

After that, you'll need to match up what you're looking for with sources on where to find it or how to make it happen.

I made a couple videos on this: • 9 Job Categories of the Best Ways to Make Money Online • How To Figure Out Your Digital Nomad Job • How To Convince Your Boss To Let You Work From Home

To find specific jobs, the best ways are:

  • Remote job boards
  • Freelancing sites
  • Going directly to the HR departments of companies you want to work for
  • Using your personal and online network
