All about Digital Nomads
Take Your Skills Abroad
It is evident that throughout the previous few years, the widespread use of technology has changed everyone’s lifestyle, and even work style. For this reason, more and more employees are now able to work from home, a library, or a coffee shop. All they need is a stable internet connection. But why stay at home when you can become a digital nomad?
Being a digital nomad is a combination of traveling while at the same time working from a laptop. Such combination allows digital nomads to choose their favourite place in the world where they are able to explore the surroundings, while supporting their adventures with their online job.
Although the number of digital nomads around the world is uncertain, it is expected that more employers will allow employees to work from anywhere in the future. Some experts forecast to have over 1 billion digital nomads by 2035. Also, based on a German survey, more than 60% of digital nomads ranged in the ages of 26 and 36 years old. In contrast with other generations, millennials are not seeking to stay with their employers for the next twenty years. They want experiences, flexibility, and freedom. As of 2017, 33% of millennials are freelancers.
Furthermore, a survey conducted by TINYpulse, shows that remote workers in the U.S. display a more positive attitude and feel more valued at work compared to workers based in an office.
Considering that traveling can be quite an adventure in itself, as you are stepping out of your comfort zone, Market Inspector has created this infographic to guide every amateur digital nomad. Here you will find the most essential information to start your life as a digital nomad.
