From the company’s perspective, offering geographic flexibility gives them access to an extended talent pool and increased employee engagement and retention.

Experts say a track record of remote work skills and experience can help applicants stand out during their job search.

“A surprising number of remote jobs across career levels and industries can be performed without any location requirements, which is amazing for professionals interested in having a more portable job. But they need to keep in mind that being a successful remote worker requires certain skills,” said Sara Sutton Fell, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “Given the popularity of remote work among professionals (81% say working completely remotely is the most desired type of work flexibility) competition is especially strong to land not only a remote job, but the highly coveted kind of position where you can work from anywhere.”

If you’re serious about securing a work-from-anywhere job, you may want to consider a short-term subscription to FlexJobs, which starts at $14.95 for a month.

Yes, the service costs a few bucks — but it filters out all of the scam job postings.
