Remote Work: Peculiarities, Popular Jobs & Freelancing

2020 clearly showed that we are at the stage of transition to remote work. If earlier the employer kept everyone in the office, then with the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, most employees were forced to work remotely. According to experts, about 70% of office workers will have been transferred to remote work by 2025 because it benefits the employer: the employer does not spend money on renting premises, Internet services, workplace equipment, etc.

Remote work is very popular in IT, food delivery, the legal industry, etc. Remote work is a great opportunity for people who live in small towns, where it isn’t easy to find a job. Everyone can work remotely, but it will be especially interesting and useful for women on parental leave, pensioners, or people of pre-retirement age. If earlier, people used to go abroad to make a living, they could now work in small towns for big companies located in big cities. 

A remote job is a very popular kind of job to earn additional money. Remote jobs can be different: a full-time remote job when you don’t need to commute and work from home Monday through Friday, and a weekend remote job when you only work during weekends. Weekend remote jobs are gaining popularity at the moment. If you desire to find a weekend remote job, try to visit some reputable job search websites online.

What is required to work remotely?
