The COVID-19 pandemic has left many people jobless, considering a career change, or on temporary leave.
Those with an office job are for the most part working remotely, and many companies are now hiring fully remote positions.
FlexJobs, a website for remote jobs, has analyzed data on the 5,989 companies hiring in its database and collated the eight highest-paying remote jobs in the fields of HR, recruitment, and business development. Applicants can do these roles from anywhere in the US and earn up to $149,000.
With the pandemic dragging on, more office workers are looking at a switch to fully remote positions.
The community platform Blind surveyed 2,501 professionals, working for companies like Google, Amazon, and Facebook worldwide, on remote working. 78% said they would apply to a fully remote job posting.
Most remote jobs need you to be in a certain city, or state, because of legal, tax, and licensing issues, according to FlexJobs.
This list, ranked by salary, includes roles in HR, recruitment, and business development that can be done from anywhere — apart from the first three jobs on the list, which require you to work in the US.
