For those who haven’t quite come to grips with the fact that work is changing (forever), perhaps this blog post will change your point of view.
Virtual Vocations has 2239 open positions posted. This list consists of jobs that companies are hiring where employees will work from home:
- VP Engineering
- HL7 Integration/Interface Engineers
- Software Engineers
- Contract Administrators
- Instructional Designers
- Virtual Assistants
- Swimwear and Toy Designers
There are other openings for positions that are traditionally done remotely like technical recruiters, writers/bloggers/editors, animators/graphic designers, bookkeepers and translators.
As organizations look to be more nimble and respond to changing customer requirements quickly, virtual teams are needed to come together to meet these new and demanding schedules. How companies find, recruit, provide remote work tools for and pay the talent they need is going to be a big challenge. And for those of us who have the specialized skills that are needed, we will need to make ourselves known to these employers.
Flexibility, outstanding communication, updated skills and the ability to adapt are critical to being successful in the evolving world of work. And the best news is; we’re more likely to be able to attend our kids ball games, concerts and parent teacher conferences.
