Top Websites for Finding Remote Work

I'm a big fan of Linkedin for securing remote work, which I dove into in Issue 1 of The Weekly Nomad. However, it isn't the only site that'll help you land that remote role you want! Here are some other sites that will surely help you secure one:


FlexJobs is a job board specifically designed for remote and flexible jobs. With over 50 career categories, job seekers can find opportunities across a wide range of industries. The platform offers a monthly or yearly subscription fee, but it's worth the investment for the quality of jobs and the peace of mind that comes with knowing the listings are legit. If you're determined to land a great remote role in a short timeframe, FlexJobs is for you.




Remote.co features a curated list of remote jobs from around the web, as well as interviews with successful remote workers and company leaders. This website is a great resource not only for remote job listings, but also for those looking to learn more about the remote work lifestyle and the companies that offer remote work opportunities.


We Work Remotely is one of the largest remote job boards, featuring positions in categories such as programming, design, customer support, and more. The site is super easy to use and has detailed job descriptions, so it's easy to find opportunities that match your skillset and interests.



Indeed is a general job board that features remote opportunities along with traditional office-based jobs. Job seekers can search for remote work by using the keyword "remote" in their search criteria, and use filters to narrow down their results by location, salary range, and job type.


The options are there, it's just up to you to start that job search!

 
Budgeting for Your First Camper Purchase

If you're considering buying a camper for your digital nomad lifestyle, it's important to plan ahead and budget accordingly. Here are some key factors to consider when determining your camper budget:



Type of Camper

The first decision to make when budgeting for a camper is deciding on the type of camper you want. There are several options to choose from like travel trailers, fifth wheels, truck campers, and motorhomes. Each type of camper has its pros and cons, and the price range can vary greatly. Check out Issue 1 for a great website that'll help you decide which camper type best suits your needs


New vs. Used

The next factor to consider is whether you want to buy a new or used camper. While a new camper may offer the latest features and warranties, it can also come with a much higher price tag. Used campers can be more affordable, but may require more maintenance and repairs. If you're handy, go the used route and save the money. If you're not handy at all (like me), the warranty that comes with a new camper will prove useful.



Size and Amenities

Size and amenities can greatly affect the price of a camper. A smaller camper with fewer amenities may be more affordable, but may also offer less comfort and convenience. A larger camper with more amenities can offer a more comfortable living space, but can also come with a higher price tag. I recommend visiting a RV show or local dealer to tour a few and figure out what space you require.


Additional Costs

In addition to the cost of the camper itself, there are additional costs to consider such as insurance, registration, and maintenance. These costs can vary depending on the type and age of the camper, as well as your personal circumstances.


To get a better idea of your camper budget, start by doing some research online to get an idea of the types of campers available and their price ranges. Then, factor in your personal preferences and needs to determine the size and amenities you require. Don't forget to also factor in the additional costs associated with camper ownership.



 

Your nomad lifestyle is just a remote job and a camper away, so hopefully this info sets you on the path to full time adventure. Stay tuned for more info & tips next week!
