For example, FlexJobs reports that 95 percent of remote jobs require candidates to be based in a certain location, such as a city or state. Also, some jobs such as a psychiatrist or data scientist will require certain educational degrees and certifications. But jobs such as affiliate marketing or a customer service representative may offer on-the-job training and allow you to work the hours that best suit your lifestyle.
When applying for such positions, make sure you still follow the rules of any job applicant seeking a new position. "Since being a successful remote worker requires some specific skills, showcasing a track record of remote work skills and experience can really boost employment prospects for remote positions," advises Brie Weiler Reynolds, senior career specialist for FlexJobs.
If you're looking for a remote job, try using different keywords in your search such as "work from home," "virtual," "telecommute," "part-time" or "partial remote." You can also search using specific occupations, such as "teacher + remote" or "data scientist + telecommute."
