According to a piece on Forbes, there’s good news we pretty much already knew: Virtual jobs aren’t only here to stay, they’re an opportunity to create big bucks. That is, if you select the right path.
In addition to careers like telepharmacists and telenurses (and yes, even phone sex operators seem to bring in mighty greenbacks per the piece), technical writers are included in the top ten list with an average annual salary of $63,000.
Michael Haaren, cofounder and CEO of jobs website Rat Race Rebellion and coauthor of Work at Home Now, explained to Forbes,“Younger workers don’t want to limit themselves to commuting and cubes. Several trends support the prediction that working from anywhere will soon be the new norm.”
Plus, the market is heading to a state of independent contracting. He added, “People with the old employee mindset will suffer. The entrepreneurial and self-driven will prosper.”
