Yes, you can actually ditch your daily commute.

A good work-from-home job used to be like finding a needle in a haystack, but, as The New York Times reported, a Gallup poll earlier this year found 43 percent of employed Americans said they spent at least some time working remotely in 2016.

If you’ve ever wanted to be a person who could avoid the rush hour and work from your couch, or maybe even the beach, companies have never been more friendly for remote employees.

In fact, working remotely is increasingly becoming a regular part of office culture, and workers are becoming more productive and more engaged when working from their home office.

Turns out, there are a ton of resources out there for finding the right remote job for you — and a ton of companies to look to. The project management company Trello has laid out some tips for your customized job search, how to prep for your interview, and what you need to know if you already have a remote job.

For example, job boards like and We Work Remotely cater to the remote-minded, and some skills are especially important when interviewing for remote work.
