Doing a job search can be frustrating and stressful enough, especially if you’re between gigs. Searching for a telecommuting opportunity makes the hunt for long term employment even more of a challenge. That isn’t to scare you away, but rather to let you know that most people who are searching for a remote opportunity don’t always find something right away.
It’s not that there are no telecommuting jobs out there. Indeed, there are plenty – and hundreds of opportunities open up each day. In fact, in 2016 there are more ways to work from home than ever. Plenty of employers are now open to the idea of hiring remote workers. However, when you consider how many people are now looking to telecommute, well, the competition is fierce.
