Remote jobs are becoming more mainstream and I’m hoping it is a change that sticks around. Employees looking to find greater work/life balance now have lots of options. Where do you go to find remote jobs? We gathered some of the best places to find remote jobs to help you jumpstart your job search.
If you are just starting your remote job hunt, you’ll want to be sure to create an organizational system to help you keep track of the jobs that you have applied for. Trello is a great tool to help you stay organized in your remote job hunt. Check out this downloadable job search template we’ve put together here.
There are many places where you can find remote jobs, especially now that it is becoming the norm for companies to provide options that work best for their employees. These sites will have everything from entry-level remote jobs to jobs for people who are more established in their careers.
Indeed is one of the first places I go when I’m looking for remote jobs. Just put “remote” in the location field and you’ll have loads of options to choose from. I love that they allow you to set up alerts for job searches that you want to stay on top of too, so it can be really helpful if you are actively job hunting.
LinkedIn is a great tool, not just for networking, but for job hunting as well. They have some amazing job postings and once you find a job you are interested in it is so easy to find someone who works for the company if you’d like to try to contact the hiring manager directly.
One of the biggest hassles of searching for a remote job is filtering out all of the nonsense. There are a lot of scams and very low-level jobs out there that can take time to sort through when you are trying to find the ideal remote job for you. FlexJobs pre-screens their job listings, making it easier and faster to find the right job.
If you are looking for higher-level remote jobs, remote.co can be a great resource. They have some of the less entry-level remote jobs and also some great resources to help you in your job hunt.
The Mom Project is a bit different from most job search tools. You’ll have to create an account and apply for jobs directly in their system but they have some great vetted jobs available and many of them offer flexible hours.
We Work Remotely is a great resource for more technical remote jobs. They only show work at home positions so you don’t have to filter out the jobs that won’t allow a flexible work setup.
Sometimes maintaining a bit more flexibility means sticking with freelance work. Freelancer.com will let you bid on individual projects. This is so helpful to get some additional job experience or just work at your own pace.
Virtual Vocations is a great resource for your remote job hunt. They have a great assortment of remote jobs so it is a great way to get a feel for the types of jobs that are available.
If you are looking for professional blogging or freelance writing jobs, the ProBlogger job board is a great place to start. For more information on getting started as a blogger go here.
Upwork is another great option if you are interested in freelance work. You bid on jobs and there are loads of different types of jobs available. It is easier to get a job once you have already successfully completed a few of them but this is a great site for beginners.
If you are looking to break into freelance graphic design, 99 Designs can be a great way to jump in. This site is a bit unique. You can jump in and create content for any project but you are not guaranteed a payout. In order to get paid, you’ll need to have your design selected. This can be a great option to test the waters and build some experience. Once your skills are up to the professional level it can be great to find freelance work.
We hope that these sites will give you a good start to your remote job hunt. Be sure and join the Busy Work at Home Moms Facebook group to see remote jobs posted daily.
