While most employers who allow telework make it a benefit or perk, some have embraced it wholeheartedly. With them, you interview, train and operate ‘virtually’ from your very first day on the job.
The biggest opportunities for pure telework are in the following fields:
- call centers
- virtual assistants and virtual concierges
- remote tech support
