What to Know About Work-From-Anywhere Jobs

Given the continued interest in work-from-anywhere job postings, finding this kind of job is easier than ever. However, before you apply, here’s what you need to know.

1. Check in With Yourself

Being a digital nomad, while exciting, can be challenging as you combine your career with travel.

FlexJobs’ career experts suggest asking yourself these questions prior to embarking on being an “anywhere worker” or applying for work-from-anywhere jobs.

  • What are the pros and cons of working from anywhere?
  • Which remote work skills are required, and do I have them?
  • What is my budget for travel expenses?
  • What are my top travel destinations?
  • How well does the employer support digital nomad workers?

2. Identify and Set a Budget

Before becoming a digital nomad, it’s important to assess expenses and put together a budget. Consider whether rent or a mortgage will need to be paid while traveling.

How much will be budgeted for hotels or accommodations? What about food, transportation, internet, and other necessities?

Whether you’ll have a full-time job or freelance gigs, make sure to determine how being a digital nomad will add expenses and budget accordingly.

3. Research the Market

The beauty of work-from-anywhere jobs is that a worker isn’t confined to their local job market.

Companies around the world may offer positions that align with a candidate’s skills and expertise, which could lead to higher pay or more enticing benefits than what’s available in the immediate vicinity.

When conducting a job search, utilize trusted resources, like FlexJobs’ list of companies for work-from-anywhere jobs, or research fully remote companies to keep an eye out for employers that support this style of working.

4. Learn the Remote Work Lingo

When job searching, start by learning the distinction between “fully remote,” “flexible,” and “work-from-anywhere” positions, and utilize keywords such as “digital nomad,” “time zone-independent,” and “distributed team.”

Terms like “asynchronous communication,” “digital-first,” and “time zone overlap” are also commonly used in remote jobs worldwide.

Beyond the job search, stand out in interviews by mentioning common remote tools used frequently in work-from-anywhere environments, such as Slack, Zoom, Trello, Asana, and other popular platforms.

5. Double-Check the Location

A job being fully remote doesn’t mean it’s a work-from-anywhere job. Many fully remote jobs have a location requirement for a number of reasons, including:

  • Legal and tax requirements: Certain laws and regulations may restrict where employees can work or where businesses can hire.
  • Licenses and certifications: Some roles require state-issued licenses or certifications for workers.
  • Time zones: Virtual companies may want staff to collaborate in real time, requiring them to live in overlapping time zones to ensure synchronous communication.
  • Clients: Some jobs require employees to live near the company’s client base.

You may need a digital nomad visa to legally stay in your chosen country.

6. Communicate Your Skills

Because being an “anywhere worker” is growing in popularity, there may be a lot of competition for the roles. Make sure your resume demonstrates why you’re perfect for the job:

  • If you’ve worked remotely before, include it as the location of your job (Name of Company | Remote).
  • Create a “Remote Work Experience” section on your resume.
  • Include a “Technology” section, highlighting your experience with remote tools (Zoom, Google Suite, Trello, etc.).
  • Mention your job responsibilities.
