Remote work allows employers to eliminate the need to travel to remote locations. It also allows them to reduce the number of employees and the amount of time they spend away from their families.
According to a study by the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) “Remote Work in the United States” the number of “work from home” workers in the US has increased from 7.5 million in 2009 to 10.9 million in 2015. This means that we now have more jobs with remote work than we did in 2009.
Of course, there are a couple of drawbacks to remote work that will affect the way you feel about it. As a remote worker yourself, you might feel that you don’t have to do anything to get the work done. As the hours and travel are fewer, you’ll probably have a harder time getting things done. It may also be difficult to find work that you’re passionate about, if you aren’t already working remotely.
If youre a remote worker yourself you might have a little trouble accepting that there’s a huge amount of jobs that are out there in the world that are out of your control. It’s not as though you can just hop online and start digging for work. And you might even feel a little resentful that most of the jobs that are out there don’t pay very much. But it’s not like you have to make a choice between the two.
For some reason, I feel like it may be a little harder for me to accept the idea of remote jobs because I have a degree in computer science. But that doesn’t mean I can’t do it. When I was in high school, I was a student in the online computer science lab at my high school. I had a job doing software testing as I had a good understanding of the ins and outs of the internet.
So what I found even though I had a good idea of what the internet was and how it worked, I wasnt really able to figure out just how to go about setting up my own website. I knew that I had to learn how to install a.Net framework and then get a web server running to host my website. But I didnt know how. I had a lot of questions about how to find out what my market was.
I actually started off learning how to do this sort of thing from the beginning. I would spend days just trying to figure out what my niche was. I would find out that there werent really any specific niches to go after. I would find out that there were a lot of niche markets of interest and I would spend days figuring out which ones to hit on. Eventually, I would realize that I didnt actually have a niche.
You basically have to learn which markets are the most profitable to hit, and then you can figure out how to set your rates and how to price your goods. I’m sure there is more that can be done, but this is my way of starting out and getting my feet wet.
Remote work is a hot topic right now. There are so many different types of remote work and it can be hard to know which ones to focus on, so I recommend starting with some smaller markets and see what they are doing. As your skills with computers, programming, design, marketing, etc grow, you can look for opportunities in more markets. There are plenty of opportunities for people who have technical skill but no design skills in design/marketing.
I’m a remote worker because I’m a designer and I didn’t have the bandwidth to go to a big office. If you don’t have technical skills, the last thing you should do is go to a big office. Most of the places I’m looking for remote work are small design or marketing agencies. There are plenty of opportunities in small design agencies that have no need to pay you all that money per hour.
