For many people, working remotely means working at home. Most people like their desk, their multi-monitor set-up, and all the comfort working-at-home offers. For others, working remotely means working wherever you want–at least when things are “normal.” And even though that’s seemingly been flipped upside down of late, travel is oftentimes one of the leading reasons that job seekers look for remote work.
For Tonya A., working remotely allows her to combine the best of both worlds. She’s a full-time RVer, so she’s both a work-from-home and a digital nomad worker. But, finding a job that supported her lifestyle wasn’t easy to come by. But thanks to FlexJobs being “the real deal,” Tonya can work where she wants.
Lots to Offer
Tonya wanted a flexible job that would mesh with her travel schedule. For her, that meant something that would let her work from anywhere whenever she wanted. However, her initial search proved fruitless. “I have three college degrees and a wealth of professional experience, and I just wasn’t finding ‘work-at-home’ jobs that were professional enough.”
That’s when she decided to try out FlexJobs. Within a few months, Tonya found a “great flexible job” with Belay Solutions. Working as an independent contractor, Tonya can choose to work where she wants, and has the flexibility to change plans quickly.
A Better Life
Thanks to her new role, Tonya is certain that the job will make life on the road better.
“I can work remotely from anywhere and still make a decent enough salary to travel.” And it’s changed her views on what her career can look like going forward. “I have pivoted some of my career decisions in a different direction after getting this job,” she says.
For Tonya, using FlexJobs allowed her to take a hands-off approach to her job search. “I actually found that creating a specific job search then getting email alerts about jobs that fit within that search paid off for me.” By using FlexJobs search filters and targeting her job search, Tonya was able to sit back and enjoy the view from her RV while FlexJobs did the heavy lifting for her.
