Find out how to secure and thrive in a work-from-home or remote-access job. Get out of your work clothes and into pajamas for good!

Did you fall in love with working from home during the months of coronavirus restrictions? Is working in your pajamas appealing? Do you want to earn some income on the side?

In 2020, the workplace has been transformed and working from home has exploded. It may, in fact, be the new reality of working for many of us, some full-time, some as a hybrid work scenario.

With some information and expert guidance, you can transform your workday, take control of your time, and explore exciting new opportunities. Great Pajama Jobs: Your Complete Guide to Working from Home is your playbook.

Until recently, you may have gone to an office that was uninspiring or chaotic, or spent a large part of your busy day responding to emails and working on computer-tasks that could easily be accomplished from home. You may have spent hours commuting each day.

Then too, you may be a military spouse in search of an ideal remote job to take with you to a new base, or you may need to manage your personal health issues or caregiving duties. Or you may simply want to inch a little closer to a more favorable work-life balance. The truth is you may need the autonomy and flexibility of working remotely for a myriad of reasons.

Great Pajama Jobs is your ultimate guide to finding a job where you can work remotely and advance your career while working in pajamas (or certainly something more comfortable than traditional work garb).
* Learn the nuts and bolts of how to land a remote-access job you love that will allow you to thrive in your career or bring in extra income in retirement
* Discover up-to-date resources for finding a solid work from home job for professionals
* Read insightful interviews with professionals who have already made the move successfully
* Learn more about leading companies recognized for providing remote employment opportunities
* Explore great remote jobs in a variety of fields

There's something here for everyone, a job-hunter's smorgasbord. No, this is not the master list of every job under the sun, but you'll discover plenty of ideas to spur your imagination about how you can make the most of your talents to create work that, well, works for you. Each job description follows this format: the nitty-gritty, pay range, and qualifications needed, with a smattering of job-hunting tips tossed in.

In "Kerry's Great Pajama Jobs Workshop," you'll reap the benefits of professional advice and strategies with information to help you land that work-from-home job, including a resume revamp, the best online job boards for home-based positions, tips on time management and organizing a productive home office, tax advice, and help with saving for retirement when you're on your own.

Working from home is here, and it's real. This year's work-from-home mandates for many workers around the world, due to the coronavirus, has pushed many employers to embrace and trust remote work.

Technology has already boosted the phenomenal growth of home-based employment in recent years and continues to do so.

Remote jobs are popular for a good reason. They save you commute time and allow you to focus on completing your work productively and successfully, and they typically provide employers significant cost savings as well.

You have the flexibility to choose career opportunities that do not require you to commit long hours inside an office environment. Experience all that a more flexible position can offer when you look to the guidance found in this remote employment roadmap. If you land home office work, comfortable work clothing or even PJs may be your wardrobe of the future. Great Pajama Jobs will help you get on track to finding the best remote job for you.
