UPDATE: With the current COVID-19 situation, this is the PERFECT time to work remotely.

- You always think of all the things you could get done at home
- Your bills are piling up from unemployment

One of the great things about working remotely, is that you can work from anywhere you have an internet connection. Even someplace…remote. Here is a simple tip to find remote jobs quickly and reduce your competition.
How to Find Remote Jobs
To find remote jobs, enter your desired job title in the WHAT field of your favorite job search site. Instead of entering your city and state, enter alternate keywords like: remote, home based, field, work at home, telecommute, virtual and nationwide in the Where field.
You could also enter these keywords in the WHAT field (one at a time) and then enter your state, or leave it blank for nationwide remote jobs. Finally, you may search for the job title with the word remote to narrow your results. For example: Remote Account Manager.
You’d be surprised how many remote jobs are currently available and unfilled because no one has applied.
