It’s a common misconception that telecommuting jobs and work from anywhere jobs are one in the same. In fact, one of the most commonly asked telecommuting questions is, “Why do some of the best telecommuting jobs require you to work from a specific location?”


Let’s consider some of the reasons why an employer may have a location requirement. An employer may have particular state tax requirements he/she is obliged to, or perhaps this particular position requires many on-site meeting. An employer may also have a need for the employee to reside within a specific, or range, of time zones.

If you’re looking for a telecommuting position with NO location requirements, we’ve compiled a fairly comprehensive list of offerings. Below are 10 recently posted “work from anywhere” telecommuting jobs which can be done from anywhere in the world.

To find these kinds of jobs, When you’re searching the FlexJobs database, choose between these two options, depending on your needs:

    1. I run my transcription company from home and 100 percent of the people who work for me telecommute. As long as my team meets their deadlines and consistently produces top quality work, I don’t care if they work from their home office or a beach in Mexico.

      Telecommuting jobs are becoming more available each year, as companies are starting to see the benefits that come with allowing their employees to work from home (or where ever). The internet and availability of digital resources make telecommuting possible for many jobs and industries.

      By the way, I just found your blog and love it! Keep the good articles coming.

      1. Thanks for sharing Lettie – I have recommended others get into transcription work. Do you have a way for people to contact you if they’re interested in being clients or contractors?

      2. Lettie, I am looking for work as I am fixing to move to Germany to do Humanitarian work. I have a degree and a host of experiences . Are you hiring?
