Best sites to find remote jobs
You’ll need to pay for FlexJobs but the depth and quality of the service would appear to pay for itself. You can choose a one, three or twelve month subscription to suit your needs and in return you get not just job listings but vetted and legitimate opportunities that are deserving of your attention. It’s not just a great site to find remote jobs, either – listings are also available for part-time and flexible jobs.
Working Nomads will be especially appealing to the side of you that most wants to find remote jobs and work from home: they bring the jobs to you! Sign up for their daily or weekly newsletter to get job listings in your inbox or go old school and peruse their uncluttered website.
The name of this site gets right to the point. In addition to listings that make it easy to find remote jobs, SkipTheDrive also sports a telecommuting calculator that will help you figure up the money you’ll save by
foregoing your commute skipping the drive.
If you’re looking for a long term commitment (you romantic, you), Staff.com is where you want to start. Contract jobs are de-emphasized in favor of permanent part-time or full-time jobs, all of which can be done from home. If you’re tired of living contract to contract, Staff.com has you covered.
How to land the gig
You’ve shortlisted a few sexy opportunities – now what?
When attempting to find remote jobs you will most likely not find yourself engaged in an in-person interview so making a first impression stick will be somewhat more difficult than usual.
Blrt is a great tool to help with that particular difficulty, allowing you to introduce yourself via a Blrt. We dedicated a blog post to strategies for landing your next job, including tips for recording an introductory Blrt like this one:
Naturally you can record one Blrt about yourself and your qualifications to send with every application but because Blrts are so easy to record, it’s also possible to record a different Blrt for each job application you submit and tailor the content to that specific role within that particular company.

Blrt helps you get your point across quickly by allowing you to talk, point and draw over images, documents and websites. The resulting video-like recording is called a Blrt.
Your Blrts require much less bandwidth than video and can be shared with anyone on mobile or desktop. This makes Blrt ideal for both collaboration and the creation and sharing of dynamic content, as public Blrts can be embedded into any webpage.
Once recorded, Blrts are stored in the cloud and are exchanged with others in a conversation-like fashion. A record is kept of the exchange, and new parties and media can be added at any time.
Blrt shifts time and place, allowing users in a conversation to participate in their own time. In an era where activity-based working and distributed teams are commonplace, Blrt is revolutionising the way people interact to get things done.
