During this “interesting” time of dealing with Covid-19, I thought it would be nice to add the voice of a few subject matter experts to the conversation; please welcome Career Advice Contributor, Gabrielle Gardiner, to discuss “25 of the Best Remote Jobs in 2020 and How to Find Them.”
Remote work is the wave of the future, and COVID-19 is speeding up the process. Experts are predicting that 25–30% of the workforce will be working remotely multiple days a week by the end of 2021. It can be tough to sort through the different positions and figure out the right fit. After you’ve found your ideal position, it’s also key to make sure your resume is optimized to get past the hurdles of ATS (application tracking systems) that are designed to weed out candidates.
With this sharp increase in interest in work-from-home careers, it’s overwhelming to figure out the best remote jobs for different situations. Where do you even start looking? Remote online job markets like FlexJobs are a great place to start, but your experience level, desired pay and long-term career plan will all factor into your job choice. Our team created your go-to list of the best remote jobs for individuals with various goals and interests. Many of these jobs can be contractor positions that allow room for growth and have the potential to set you up for similar salaried roles in the future.
