Remote Work Round-Up – July 6, 2017

Saving on your commute is nice, but it's actually not the biggest reason people choose remote work. In an article on Bloomberg, retired technology consultant Beth Donovan says, "I was able to get a lot done in a much shorter amount of time than when I was in the office, because there were no distractions from working in a noisy cubicle farm." For some it's a productivity thing, and for others it's the inability to express yourself without judgement.

As the author points out in the conclusion, "there's no single good answer to the remote-versus-office choice, only tradeoffs." Regardless, office sizes are shrinking and employers need to work to accommodate the shifting needs of their employees. Only time will tell how things take shape.

For those of you looking for a little more flexibility, or few less distractions, check out our remote jobs below!

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

5 Tips for Career Switchers: Insight from Work & Co’s Sarah Mogin on Making Use of Your Past Lives

Sarah Mogin never used to like writing open-ended essays in school. She found herself much more motivated by tangible problems.

Calculus had some of those—she never had trouble with her math homework—but when she was in school she never envisioned just how much she could incorporate that love of solution-finding into her daily work, much less that she would have a career as a developer one day.
