The 4 ABSOLUTE BEST Websites to Find Remote Work and Work Abroad

 

The Internet is full of listicles and advice on “How to Make Money While You Travel,” “How to Earn Money Traveling While Working Remotely,”or “How to Get a Job Abroad.” You’ve probably clicked on a few of these articles yourself, in your idle time (or on your employer’s dime). And if you’re anything like me, these articles are usually disappointing—they lack solid details, or the sites they recommend don’t have any opportunities for anyone but super-skilled software developers. They’re the results of a $10/hour content writer who has been charged with slapping together an “SEO-friendly” article about “remote work,” “Location Independence,” “Working while traveling,” and similar search terms. In other words: they lack both authority and investment.

How to Find (REAL) Remote Work and Travel Jobs Abroad

I’ve spent the last 18 months of my life looking for remote work, working while traveling, and job-hopping. I have actively been searching for new and different roles throughout that 18 months—because despite what some sites might tell you, it’s not a quick and easy process.

So I’m not going to present you with a long, meandering list of websites and strategies to try. Nor am I going to recommend UpWork. Instead, I’m going to give you the cream of the crop. From my own experience, these are the four, absolute best resources for finding remote work, travel jobs, and/or international jobs which will sponsor your visa and relocate you to a foreign country.

I hope it helps you chase your dreams!

I recently bought stock in Vail Resorts.

Here’s a fact I bet most ski bums don’t know: Vail Resorts is a publicly traded company. It is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker MTN. You can buy and sell shares in the company using any online stock-trading tool.

Another fact many skiiers may not know: Vail Resorts owns not just Vail Mountain and Beaver Creek in Colorado, but also Breckenridge and Keystone. The company also owns Heavenly, Northstar, and Kirkwood in California, and plans to combine Park City and Canyons in Utah to reclaim the crown of the largest ski resort in the U.S. next year (the record is currently held by Big Sky Resort in Montana).

Vail Resorts also owns much of the real estate and many of the businesses in the town of Vail. I suspect it is a similar situation near their other resorts.

To put those facts in context: Vail Resorts is a large corporation with well-diversified assets. They are positioned as an industry leader in a luxury market.

The stock market is rewarding them.

All while the Vail Resorts empire is built on the backs of employees who are treated like shit.

But the brand standard persists for one simple reason:
