I love working remotely — so I can’t help telling nearly everyone I know about the benefits of working remotely and encouraging them to also consider a remote job!

This is a resource for all the peeps I am encouraging to check out remote work. Since I talk about it so often, I thought I would just create a friendly guide of resources and tips that have helped me. p.s. working remote is not just for freelancers — you can land cool full time gigs too.

I love working remote because I save time and money on commuting, I actually have an opportunity to do better, independent work, and have a quiet space that is comfortable and customizable to me.

Working a remote job can be hard and isolating, there are great communities out there to support you! Here are some awesome places to meet fellow remote workers and remote-friendly companies

What to expect from companies while working remotely.

There is a difference between a company that hires remote workers, and one that is “Remote First” from benefits and expectations to culture…When looking for a remote role, understand what type of “remote” company it is:

Remote-Friendly: A company that hires remote workers and has some remote workers on staff, as well as has office/s where people work from.

Remote First: Work where ever you want to, building a team around a workflow that is based on the concepts of remote work, whether or not everyone is remote.

Remote Only: Everyone is remote, there is no brick and mortar.

Some benefits you can usually expect are:

  • Getting money to help make your home office comfortable and furnished is a typical benefit
  • Expect a new computer and the tech equipment you need to get the job done!
  • Sometimes working remotely can be lonely, it’s not a-typical that you could also get a co-working space stipend.
