Culture Of Remote Work
21st century has brought about a lot of drastic changes in our culture and style of living mainly due to it’s technological advancements. One of such areas where our traditional system of living has been challenged is what we call “work” or “job“. While before the advent of the internet we had to go to a physical location called the “office” and spend the entire day there working, nowadays we are free to work from anywhere we like. We have moved towards a culture of Remote Work.
Overcoming the boundaries of distance, remote work opens up opportunities to work with any team around the world working from the comfort of our homes. While one might argue the benefits of remote work and regardless of the advantages and disadvantages of working remotely, one thing is evident in this culture of remote work. Finding a remote work is not that easy!
More than 3 billion people are now on the internet. So while before there used to be competition only at the local level for any given job, now the competition has become global. There could be thousands of applications for a single position to work remotely. So, how can one find a remote work easily in this context?
