Who wants to commute, anyway?
Summer is fast approaching and if you're looking to spend more time at home and less time in traffic, you're in luck. There are loads of remote jobs hiring in Calgary and you could even get paid up to $140,000 a year.
Remote work gives you the option to turn your local coffee shop or balcony into your own personal office — which is an extra special perk on those really sunny days. You could work in anything from sales to managing flight schedules without even needing to leave the house.
And while there are plenty of cool opportunities out there, like with The City Of Calgary (currently looking to fill a bunch of positions that pay up to $50 an hour), or with the Calgary Zoo, the fact that you can work from home definitely gives these jobs a leg up on the competition.
So if you're open to the possibilities of remote working, you'll want to check out these roles:
