#87: Remote work and digital nomadism have always been of particular interest to folks in the FIRE community.
After the pandemic, remote work was suddenly thrust upon the entire knowledge workforce. And after two long pandemic years, the possibility that remote work for many professions will persist and become long-term viable options is tantalizingly close.
What is the state of remote work right now? Where is the future of remote work headed? What jobs are most in-demand for remote work, and how much can you get paid for them?
This week, I deep dive on these questions with Sharon Koifman, founder of DistantJob, a remote-only recruiting agency that helps companies find full-time remote employees around the world.
How Sharon became an advocate for remote work and got into remote recruitingHow the pandemic changed norms around remote workWhat types of jobs are most in-demand for remote work right nowWhat types of jobs still have not embraced remote workSkills and qualities employers look for when hiring remote employees (profile of an ideal candidate)Compensation: what remote employees can earn for certain roles (including pay range - min and max)How companies adjust compensation for remote employeesHow companies can promote strong, healthy remote work culturesCheck it out here:
And now, I’m super curious…. Are you a remote worker or digital nomad? Trying to be? Wish to be? If so, what type of work do you do?
If you work remotely for a company, was your compensation adjusted when you switched to remote?
What’s the biggest benefit vs. challenge you have experienced as a remote worker? How do you build (and keep) strong connections to people in your company/organization?
Does being able to be remote change your FIRE plans, timeline, or philosophy at all?
