There are a lot of benefits to working remotely. For some, it’s the lack of a commute. For others, it’s the ability to work from wherever you want.
However, for some people, there is a downside to working remotely. Once they start working remotely, they can’t even imagine going back to an in-office job.
That’s the situation Jeremy K. was in. He was already working remotely and wanted a new job—but only if it were remote.
“I knew that it would be very difficult to transition back to a traditional work setting. I am a traveler who has spent the last several years voyaging around the globe and working from where I have an Internet connection.”
Following the Dream
Jeremy joined FlexJobs in search of another remote job. He enjoys remote work because it allows him to continue his travels and earn an income. “The ability to do that is priceless,” he says, “as it allows me to follow my dream.”
Eventually, Jeremy found a job that allows him to maintain his traveling lifestyle and work remotely. Now, Jeremy is living his best life working as a business development director at Ylopo, a real estate marketing company. Because Jeremy doesn’t have to commute, he feels that he’s less stressed and also having a positive impact on the environment. Jeremy also gets to spend more time with his family.
The Future Is Here
Jeremy also believes that flexible and remote jobs are “the future of work.” As he points out, the most expensive part of any company’s budget is overhead from rent and utilities. With remote jobs, it’s possible for companies to lower that overhead. “Technology makes it possible,” says Jeremy. “Now it is up to employers to make the change.”
He also advises job searchers to be patient in their hunt for a remote job. “Be realistic in your search, and don’t get down if you don’t find something imminently. The right opportunity will come.”
Thanks to his FlexJobs membership, Jeremy found a remote job that allows him to live his dream life, have a positive impact on the environment, and earn an income. His advice on a FlexJobs membership? “DO IT.”
