TUCSON, Ariz. (PRWEB) September 13, 2018

In their latest report, Virtual Vocations proves that jobs which can be performed offsite, away from a centralized company headquarters, appeal to professionals in numerous areas of expertise.

"The average telecommute jobseeker is over 40 years of age with a minimum of a bachelor's degree and at least five years of experience working remotely, so it's no surprise that the best jobs of 2018 reflect many diverse, mid-level career specialties," said Laura Spawn, Virtual Vocations CEO.

To generate their list of the Top 20 Telecommute Jobs of 2018, Virtual Vocations examined their mid-year company data through June 30, 2018 as well as salary and job growth data compiled by research bodies like PayScale and the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics(BLS).

From their company data, Virtual Vocations determined the most popular job industries for which their website members seek telecommute jobs then identified which telecommute jobs are most prevalent within those fields. The company also found that each of the following Top Telecommute Jobs for 2018 will experience job growth through at least 2026:

1. Software Developer
2. Sales Representative
3. Nurse
4. Account Manager
5. Instructional Designer
6. Consultant
7. Project Manager
8. Interpreter
9. Manager
10. Customer Service Representative
11. Teacher
12. Marketing Manager
13. Writer
14. Business Analyst
15. Fundraiser
16. Speech-Language Pathologist
17. Quality Assurance Specialist
18. Researcher
19. Recruiter
20. Finance Manager

Additionally, the report identified trends in seasonal hiring. Jobseekers can expect a boom in seasonal hiring through the end of 2018, according to Virtual Vocations.

Employers have begun filling seasonal telecommute jobs especially in career fields like customer service, sales, marketing, and travel. Seasonal workers, who typically work a particular job for six months or less per year, are in high demand by retail trade companies in need of additional staff to mitigate a surge in end-of-year business leading up to the busy holiday shopping season.

"Seasonal telecommute jobs are a great fit for anyone interested in job flexibility while earning supplemental income during a traditionally expensive time of year," said Spawn. Virtual Vocations' CEO continued, "Seasonal telecommute jobs can also serve as a stepping stone for professionals who have been interested in working from home but are hesitant to make the switch to a full-time, year-round remote job."
