Top 6 sites for creative nomads to find the best remote work, side hustles + seasonal jobs

Hey, nomads: It’s a brand-new year, time for a brand-new job, or way to work. And we’re right there with you.

In our own job searches, we’ve uncovered these sites to help you find better jobs to fit your own schedules and needs.

Also: There are no shortage of job sites dedicated to the tech industry. We concentrate here on creative (or at least non-tech exclusive) job boards.


FlexJobs: Tired of scam ads or jobs that seem to be advertised everywhere? FlexJobs offers a plethora of “hand-screened remote, part-time, freelance, and flexible jobs” in 50 categories. I’ve been a subscriber on-and-off for a few years, whenever I need to add a little side or remote work to my mix.

As a special thanks, our followers can use promo code NOMAD to receive 30% off any subscription. What a deal!

Rat Race Rebellion: Looking for a great side hustle? Rat Race Rebellion has you covered. From virtual assistants to remote customer service for travel companies or transcription, here’s where you can find a quick gig to help pay the bills. Be sure to sign up for their free daily newsletter for a round-up of the newest opportunities.

For those looking to fast-track their hiring success, RRR is offering a new ‘How to Find a Work-from-Home Job or Gig in 30 Days or Less’ video course. Use promo code ‘AFF20OFF’ for 20% off regular price of $49.

CoolWorks: Looking for a great seasonal or contract job in the recreation or travel industries or at national parks? CoolWorks has been a personal go-to since 1995 with “great jobs in great places.” I especially love their “older and bolder” section for retirement age nomads that still want to work and travel.

The Working Traveller: One of our favorite websites to look for seasonal or contract opportunities abroad. Of special note: Their curated JobSpy postings of interesting jobs they’ve found around the web, as well as this collection of 600+ ways to get paid to travel.
