4 Best Practices for Reining In Your Remote Work Expenses
With a bit of common sense and planning, you can reel in your remote work expenses and save up. Here’s how.
AND.CO is now Fiverr Workspace
We Work Remotely offers a searchable database of remote positions across more than eight categories, from marketing to dev-ops and everything in between.
Jobspresso lists remote positions across a range of categories and offers the option of creating a profile and posting your resume for employers to see.
Remote.co lists remote positions across 10+ categories. The job board is user-friendly and their blog offers tips and best practices for remote work.
Working Nomads lists remote positions under 15 categories, including Legal and Finance. Set up a profile to keep tabs on bookmarked jobs, but beware that sometimes the listings can be out of date.
Remotely Awesome Jobs offers a list of remote opportunities tailored for technical and programming professionals. An additional resource curated for this crowd is Authentic Jobs.
Outsourcely is the LinkedIn of the remote job market. The platform will ask you to set up a profile and have at least one of your past job positions verified in order to be able to start applying for positions on their site. Here, you can chat with employers, see how many others have applied for the position, and participate in a referral bonus program.
Dribbble is a site that allows UX/UI designers to share their work and see what others are working on. Dribbble’s job board is great as it allows you to easily search by Remote roles only. Behance is another designer resource with a robust jobs board.
AngelList is a job board specific to startups, many of which are hiring for contract and/or “Remote OK” professionals. To begin, set up a profile that includes your employment background. Once you’ve done that, you can apply to jobs with a single click and message employers. Filter by “Remote OK” in the job search to limit your outreach to only those companies open to partnering with nomads like yourself.
The Muse offers a job platform with opportunities filtered by position, job level and company size. As an added benefit, The Muse offers top notch information including career coaching/advice and company profiles.
Glassdoor allows you to search jobs through a keyword search, as well as setting up a profile with your resume. To start, they will ask you to submit one review of a company you have worked at or with, and this can be anonymous.
Indeed is a job aggregator that allows you to search jobs by keyword and location. Since most jobs here are full-time and on-site, you will need to use keywords like “remote,” “freelance” or “contract” to identify the right opportunities.
LinkedIn is an obvious place to search, and makes it very easy to apply for opportunities. Similar to Indeed, since this network is more targeted to traditional opportunities, you’ll need to use keywords in your search to find remote-friendly opportunities.
“If you’re on Slack already (which is increasingly common), consider joining communities there to stay connected with the broader nomad community. NomadList’s Slack Channel, for example, brings together 7,000+ nomads from around the world. You can join at www.join.nomadlist.com.”
