Amelia has been working online for a company based in Denver since 2017. She administers their Sales CRM (Customer Relationship Management) Tools and Sales Incentive Program.
She was able to convert her current job, which was already mostly remote, to a 100% online job over the course of a year. That’s a little different than finding a new online job with a new employer, but it’s another example of a job responsibility that can be done from anywhere.
Finding an Online Job
Ready to start your search for a 100% remote job? Most of the well-known job sites have a dedicated section for work-from-home opportunities:
Crossover.com is a website dedicated to connecting employers and top talent, regardless of physical location. This website leans heavily toward technical jobs so if you have experience in software or engineering, you might qualify for a high-paying job and be able to live in a low-cost country.
Here are several more online job sites:
- Dynamite Jobs
- Hubstaff Talent
- Truly Remote
- Working Nomads
It’s easy to get overwhelmed looking through all of these online job sites and job postings so just take it one step at a time and don’t try to do too much at once.
Create a bookmarks folder called Online Job Sites in your browser and save links to the relevant sites for easy reference. Create another folder for Online Job Postings, and maybe sub-folders for each type of online job if you plan to apply for jobs in more than one field.
As you go through the job postings, bookmark the jobs that you applied for or plan to apply for. Submit your application and/or resume as quickly as possible and message the job poster if possible to show your interest.
Keep in mind that it could take weeks or months to land a new online job, so check the relevant job sites daily and apply immediately for any job that matches your skill set and sounds interesting.
Selling Yourself to Online Job Companies
To stand out as the perfect remote worker, emphasize these qualities in your resume and interviews:
- Self-motivation: Highlight your ability to work independently without requiring constant supervision.
- Focus: Showcase your ability to concentrate on tasks without distractions.
- Adaptability: Demonstrate your flexibility and willingness to adjust to new situations and technologies.
Apply to as many jobs that fit your skillset as possible and accept every interview opportunity. Interviews are great practice, and if you get multiple offers, that’s a good problem to have.
Securing a 100% remote job may take time, but consistency and perseverance will eventually pay off.
In the meantime, consider starting a side hustle to develop your skills and diversify your income streams.
As you explore the world of online jobs, remember that the opportunities are endless, and the right position is out there waiting for you. Good luck on your journey!

Hola todos! Welcome to my author bio page! Let's see. Where to begin... I grew up in the country on a lake outside a small Kansas farm town. As soon as I could, I got the hell outta there! Since then, I've lived and/or worked in Kansas City, Washington D.C., Denver, San Francisco, and Ecuador. I started and sold a dotcom, wrote a book about it, started a YouTube channel, and now I write a lot. Amelia and I have embraced the Unconventional Life and we want to help you do it, too!
