Here are the Best Cities to Move to for Telecommuting

I have been Telecommuting as a writer for over a decade now. It has afforded me the opportunity to travel on my own terms.

As long as I go somewhere with a good internet connection, I can practically do my Job from anywhere.

I have written many articles encouraging readers to take telecommuting as a new career or to get a supplemental income.

This pandemic has irrevocably changed life and culture on Earth, especially when it comes to working.

Since March 2020, over 47 million Americans have applied for unemployment insurance because of coronavirus pandemic. Meanwhile, over 40,000 Americans were diagnosed with coronavirus in a 1-day period. If this situation does not improve, there will be more cycles of lockdowns and re-openings. That can’t help our economy.

I have realized that maybe I project my own ease of accessibility when it comes to telecommuting onto others too much.

Over 63% of Americans currently telecommute once in a while, part-time, full-time, or seasonally. Some even divide their time between working in a physical office and telecommuting.

About 41.6% of all jobs in the United States can be done remotely.

It is wrong to assume that everyone can telecommute like I do, as a way to monetize writing or artistic skills online.

Many people are not writers, computer designers, or online auctioneers. There are many brick and mortar offices that require or accommodate nonessential employees working at home.

Additionally, there are many people with families and responsibilities who must be physically rooted to one area while telecommuting.

In short, it may be in your best interests to find salaried telecommuting work instead of freelance work.
