  5. Fiverr - the first gigs marketplace that started the trend. Fiverr is great for entrepreneurs that are just starting out but it really takes a long time to build your profile and get enough five-star reviews to get more gigs.

Is it hard to get a remote job?

Finding a remote job is not that difficult it’s just different than applying to a regular job and requires a different approach. You have to make sure that you’re active on social media and have set up (and optimized) your various profiles - LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

You also need to be more creative and show your flare and your personality online. It may require getting creative and offering to do test assignments or test projects for positions that you apply to.

How long does it take to find a remote job?

This can vary greatly depending on the industry and your level of experience. In general, it’s pretty standard to find an opportunity in 3-6 months, in any job search whether traditional or remote.
