Though you may not think it but sales jobs are actually a huge source for remote work opportunities. According to the most recent data on the fastest-growing occupations from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, sales representative positions are projected to grow 9% in the next 10 years. “FlexJobs’ Top 100 list has consistently featured a robust number of companies offering remote sales jobs, and 2018 again confirms the natural compatibility of the sales industry with remote work,” said Sara Sutton Fell, founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “Having a career in sales can require a great deal of travel, so finding a sales jobs that can be done from home can have a profoundly positive impact on a sales professional’s work-life balance. For example, we recently heard from one job seeker interested in remote work who happily traded in her travel-heavy sales job for one that allows her to continue her career while being able to spend more time for her family. Every day we hear stories of how remote work can help people find better work situations that fit their lives,” Sutton Fell concluded.
