Discover The Secrets Of Working While You Travel

   77 views


In the Internet Age, the global work landscape has shifted, and 70 percent of people now do remote work at least once each week, according to CNBC. More and more people are making the decision to work remotely, so they can lead their ideal lifestyles as they earn. If the concept of working as your travel is appealing, you should know that there are some amazing remote employment opportunities out there. This quick guide will give you the inside scoop on polishing your resume, putting together a portfolio, signing up at online agencies and obtaining the right equipment for remote employment.

Polish your resume and create a portfolio

To get the ball rolling with remote employment, you’ll need to put your best foot forward by polishing your resume and putting together a portfolio. For example, if you’re interested in doing Web development as you travel historic Route 66 in an RV, or something along those lines, you’ll need to make sure that your resume reflects relevant work experience. The resume should be one to two pages in length and detail your work background, with an emphasis on your past work in the Web development niche, or whichever niche you’re interested in working in.

Your portfolio should include links to your work online, pictures of your work and information about who you were working for. Without a good resume and portfolio, getting started will be much harder. You may be overlooked by prospective employers. Competition for remote jobs is generally fierce. Most of these jobs are accessed at online agencies.

Sign up at online freelance agencies

The quickest way to start making money, no matter where you are, is signing up at online freelance agencies. When you do so, you’ll be able to bid for jobs in your niche whenever you have access to a Web connection. Some of the most popular online freelance agencies are Upwork, Odesk, and Peopleperhour, but these three options just scratch the surface.

It’s usually possible to get a free membership, although this sort of membership will limit the number of jobs that you may apply for per month. A higher tier of membership, which will cost money, will give you more perks. Examples of types of work offered at these “middleman” agencies include freelance writing jobs, Web development assignments and virtual assistant tasks. You may do piece work or work for an hourly rate. However, before you accept jobs, you should ensure that your computer equipment and Web connection are reliable.

Make sure that you have the right equipment

Deadlines are a fact of life with remote employment. Responsiveness to clients is also an essential component of ongoing career success. Since you won’t be meeting with employers face-to-face, you’ll need to show respect and responsibility by being prompt and dependable. The right equipment will help. You will need a newer-model laptop and access to decent Wi-Fi. To stay responsive, it is recommended to use Fuze for video conferencing. It’s a convenient Skype alternative which offers chat messaging, voice calls and video meeting across every device.

Explore the world while you make money

Traveling is the best ways to nourish your mind, body, and spirit. When you see new things and meet new people, you’ll enrich your life. You don’t need to stay home to earn money. You can do it on the open road. So, why not put together a resume and portfolio, sign up at an online freelance agency and get the right equipment and apps today?
