As working from home is a new trend, there is not yet one clear search term that everyone uses, so you might find jobs listed in the following ways:
- working from home, work from home, work at home, home based jobs etc.
- remote jobs or remote work jobs
- online jobs
- freelance jobs
- virtual jobs
- telecommute jobs
- digital nomad jobs
- agile jobs or
- location ‘open to discussion’.
The most common terms are around ‘working from home’ and ‘remote jobs’ so it’s probably best to stick with those unless you’re looking for something very specific. There’s one other thing to look out for, which may or may not be a category of job, which is ‘hybrid’ or ‘flexible’ working. This is where you may be mostly working from home, but with some requirement to go into one or more office locations for larger team meetings. You may find this kind of work pattern discussed in the job description itself as often as it may be in the title or category.
