The world of work is changing, and remote work is taking center stage. For solo female travelers, this shift brings exciting opportunities to combine a career with globetrotting adventures. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll walk you through the ins and outs of finding and thriving in remote work.
Working Remote for a Company: This entails being employed by a company that allows you to work from anywhere. You maintain a steady job, enjoy job security, and often receive benefits like health insurance and retirement plans.
Being a Digital Nomad (Possibly Freelance): As a digital nomad, you’re a free spirit. You work independently, often as a freelancer or entrepreneur. You have more flexibility but also greater responsibility for managing your income and career.
Similarities: Both paths offer location independence, allowing you to choose where you work. Both require discipline, time management, and a reliable internet connection.
Online Job Boards: Platforms like FlexJobs, Remote.co, and We Work Remotely list remote job opportunities across various industries.
Company Websites: Check the career pages of companies you admire. Many corporations offer remote positions.
Freelancing Platforms: If you’re inclined toward freelancing, websites like Upwork, Fiverr, and Freelancer can help you find remote gigs.
Networking: Leverage LinkedIn, professional organizations, and industry events to connect with potential remote employers.
