Are you interested in working from home but aren’t sure where to start, how it works, or if it’ll be good for your wallet? Well, Inc.com gave a comprehensive look at the financial gains of working remotely.
The publication notes that remote work saves the average person around $5,000 per year on expenses like gas, car maintenance, dry cleaning and laundry, lunch and other cafe munchies, and a business casual wardrobe, to name a few.
According to Forbes, between 2005 and 2015, the number of employed Americans who do at least 50% of their work remotely, grew by 115%. In true keeping up with the Joneses fashion, it’s not just tech companies that hire remote employees; Fortune 500 companies are paying attention to the changing job market and adjusting their corporate structure to reflect the times. Even big names like United Healthcare, American Express, Oracle, and Cigna are among the list of businesses making the transition.
Inc.com provided a helpful list of companies and their available remote positions, including the obvious customer service positions, but also careers like business analysts and technical trainers at Amazon, at-home Mac experts for Apple, security architects and analysts at IBM, and more.
In addition, FlexJobs curated a list featuring the 100 Top Companies with Remote Jobs in 2018.
