A decent group of gigs today, although people might take the time to write better job ads…
And on that note, your job tip’ o the day is: Location specific gigs might be suitable for telecommuters, but if you don’t ask you won’t know. I posted at least 5 gigs today that were super vague about location. These are jobs that could be done remotely, but maybe they want on site. Sometimes, jobs that state a location may not find someone they like and could be willing to take on a telecommuter. In my opinion, it never hurts to contact a location specific gig and see if they’d hire a telecommuter. UNLESS the job states one of the following:
- Must be able to attend meetings.
- Must supervise/work with the on-site team.
- So and so candidates ONLY!
- Needs to interview local sources in person.
When gigs state the above, it’s a good bet they’re not up for remote writers. But otherwise it never hurts to ask.
