Turns out you don't need a corner office to make a six figure salary. Several open jobs in tech and other sectors with annual salaries of more than $100,000 feature remote work options, according to a recent report from FlexJobs.
"It's a common misconception that work-from-home jobs are scams, only exist in specific industries like customer service or data entry, and are lower-paying, but that couldn't be further from the truth," Sara Sutton, CEO and founder of FlexJobs, said in a press release.
The average telecommuter now earns a higher median salary than an in-office worker, according to another FlexJobs report. "As more companies adopt remote work policies, there are growing opportunities for meaningful and high-paying careers across industries to be built while working from home," Sutton said in the release. "And with today's tight labor market, highly qualified professionals are in a prime position to land a high-paying job that includes highly coveted remote work options."
