Say goodbye to the 9-to-5. Learn the steps you can take TODAY to get a remote job.

Who actually sits in an office these days? Everyone knows that being a remote worker is where it’s at. New data shows that 6.1a million individuals in the US can be categorized as remote workers, whether self-employed or employed for organizations on a full-time or part-time basis. Working from home, a coffee shop or a communal workspace in pretty much anywhere you desire is becoming the norm.

And if people want to say only lazy people work at home (in their pajamas), I would tell them to think again. These remote workers are actually saving companies billions! Gallup estimates that active disengagement costs the U.S. $450 billion to $550 billion per year. In their study on remote work arrangements, they found that ALL degrees of remote work options showed higher levels of employee engagement than without remote work options. Plus, remote workers are cheaper for companies and not limiting yourself to people who live within an hour of your office puts the company at an advantage.

Not every company has realized this awesome secret but many have. Here are some of the best ones across various industries. Many of these are from data compiled by FlexJobs.
