Four places to get your first short-term gigs

So, you want to work from home. You’ve got your laptop, your jumbo cup of coffee, and your favourite pair of slippers… all you need is a gig (or two) and you can officially call yourself a remote worker.

Your dreams of working from home might be closer to reality than you think. Remote work and gigs are becoming more common and easier to come across. In fact, a recent poll showed that 43% of working Americans have spent at least some time working remotely (source: nytimes). And of course, technology is making it all easier to do, with video chat, file sharing, and plenty of ways to collaborate from nearly anywhere in the world.
