Remote Jobs That Allow You to Travel

I’ve been trying to get a job in cyber security for over a year now. I haven’t been able to get anything decent despite having a meme degree, most of the required entry level certs, CISSP, listing 5+ years of fake experience on my CV, etc. I just get an automated rejection letter or get rejected in interviews in the very FEW ones I actually get, which is extremely rare. I’ve pretty much given up and accepted I’ll need to do another fast track degree in something that will actually place me into a job immediately upon graduation.

My question is, what are the best jobs for this and which are best for remote work?

I was thinking nursing since apparently nurses can do remote triaging or consulting and nurses usually get hired immediately after finishing their degree. They can also work anywhere in the world.

    I don't work remotely, although I do work from home some days, because I like working in the office with my peers but remote work or at least working from somewhere else is an opportunity I'll probably have in the near future. Here's what I have to say:
    1. Tech jobs are more reliant on having connections than people tell you. Everyone has this idea that you can just go and work for some big company in an epic job based on a degree alone because it's a tech job, it's just not true. I got my connections from my previous career, where I was a real user of the very software I work on now, and would constantly give feedback to the developers about bugs and stuff.
    2. A degree is not a meme. Yes, tech companies are leading the way in not requiring degrees but a degree is still king when it comes to getting yourself that first job. Having a degree doesn't tell employers anything about the technical skills you have, but what it does tell them is that you're willing to put in the effort and have the organisational skills required to get a degree, and that's really what employers want to see.
    3. Remote work/digital nomading is a real thing, but you need to set your expectations.
    Most people doing it had a lot of money in the bank before they started. Most people only do it for a few months at a time. Most people accept a far lower salary than they would if they were working 5 days a week in the office. Most people doing it also have a decent amount of passive income being from investment properties or dividend stocks (and without that, they probably wouldn't be able to work remote). Finally, a lot of people try it, and quickly realise they would rather just work for 9 months of the year and have a 3 month unpaid holiday (paid for by aforementioned passive income) each year instead of trying to balance travelling and working.

    Maybe you can look into cybersecurity jobs in other countries that will allow you to move overseas and work rather than try and work remotely

      the degree thing is truth. People who say that you don't need one for tech is just one big cope. Having that piece of paper will get your resume looked at and shows commitment

        I find it easier to get picked up by promoting my portfolio and open source work than spamming my resume. Once you get an interview the degree does not matter, and it is easier to get an interview by not going through hr filters.

        No the reality of it is that HR homosexuals who don't actually know anything about technology who make the job listings just want an easy way to filter people. So whether or not you put a degree on your resume just makes it an easy target to just throw it out before moving it on to the hiring manager of whatever team that is looking for a position.

        In all honesty, you could probably just say you went to some college in your town for 4 years in your resume and no one will ever know if it's true or not. Because it really doesn't matter outside of your resume not being binned.

      If you're serious on ditching cybersecurity, try these

      >being a sales homosexual for something tech-related
      >most work is email, hence most of your day is free to goof off
      >writing about something tech-related
      >from my experience, you have to churn out around 4-6 long blog posts per month which leaves you with a shitton of free time on your hands

      And you really want a job that doesn't have you accept a fricking call at 9am and answer to million emails after hours. In a nice place, you want to chill not work.

      Thankfully they're shit, otherwise I'd be on the dole.

    Been trying to get a fricking job in Montreal for over a year and there's nothing:

    I used to work in private banking, got an economics degree, worked for crypto exchanges as well as remote work and it was the best job ever (They allowed travel, relocation, paid six figs in crypto, relaxed vibes, could keep the salary in crypto and not declare it as income so i kept 100% of it) then bear market hit and they fired everyone not working in the US lol.

    Then covid came, banking sector jobs in MTL died down to shitty retail banking customer service work and call centers, everything related to private banking/compliance/investment banking is done is Toronto or got outsourced altogether.

    Been looking for remote work in crypto exchanges and there's nothing, and given my background where i focus on financial crimes now since theres no private banking work in my city, i can't find much outside of crypto exchanges.

    One year and only got interviewed for shit clown banking work that pays 1/3 of what i used to make. Absolutely cucked bros.

        It's not even that, banks have been outsourcing work to India for the last 5 years and with covid things accelerated. Now everything related to compliance/financial crimes is done by pajeets who ask for 20% of your salary and private banking downsized to the strict minimum so Toronto is all they need to handle those needs.

        Soon even Investment Banking, Sales & Trading will be done by AI or foreign branches since it doesn't make any sense to pay some bozo 150k/year + bonuses to do M&A for some client that's not even based in Canada. It's not Wall Street so banks don't need to maintain a real presence to keep working as usual.

        Covid just accelerated wage cuck's demise it seems like.

            TTT anon, is that you? I'm sorry to hear you're still stuck in the US. There was a six month period during covid when I was trapped in my shit home country and you went through the Thailand quarantine bullshit and lived a baller life. I waited until Phuket sandbox to get back there. You ran out of money and visa extensions around that time and went home and you've been bitter and depressed ever since.
            I'm going to tell you what I've told you before. Get a remove job and get back to enjoying your life, but do it in moderation. Don't spend a year in Pattaya and Bangkok. Live in low cost of living countries and locations at least 50% of the time. You're living like a monk now and wearing down your body doing manual work. You could leave for a year and come back and get the same type of job. (You're not union, right?) So why don't you make a go of it. You've got a degree and you can use MS Office, so you can get a shit entry level office job that pays $1300-2000/month. You'll live find in SEA on that until you can get something better.
            For you and anyone else who read this far, there are things you can do to get entry-level jobs when you're an older fricktard starting over. Put one job if you've held it 2 years or more, or a couple of jobs if less. Change the work duties to involve paperwork/officework. And remove the dates of your graduation from your education. This makes you look young on paper, exactly the type of malleable person companies want. If you make it to the interview and survive that (which will often be remotely done now), nobody knows your real age until you are processed after signing your offer, and then it doesn't matter.
            I could give IT advice too but

            I don't work remotely, although I do work from home some days, because I like working in the office with my peers but remote work or at least working from somewhere else is an opportunity I'll probably have in the near future. Here's what I have to say:

            Maybe you can look into cybersecurity jobs in other countries that will allow you to move overseas and work rather than try and work remotely

            covered most of it. For OP, I'll say the real cybersec jobs now are rare unless you're lucky, got connections, decades of experience, and likely you've still got either luck or connections. Get a networking job if you don't want to dev, and/or some AWS/Azure certs.

    as far as cyber security goes I know someone with a masters who tried for (2) years to land a job even lying on his resume for the last (6) months and only got a handful of interviews like yourself. It's very bizarre almost fake bc I have never met anyone who actually works in any of 6 figure jobs and I actually interact with businesses daily and before that worked in customer service. I did meet someone unironically at the airport who said they did software dev for disney but I think he was lying. I suspect 99.9% of this tech shit is outsourced to India.

    As far as US remote jobs go most are like this:
    >you work in your state and cant leave but can live anywhere in state you were hired in

    >you can work in certain states as long as you update your address and get approval

    >you can work in any state any time and it doesn't matter

    Most tech jobs do not let you move to another country even if they have offices or are headquartered there if they hired you as a US-based employee. I am sure some do and there are also ways to remote in and bypass all the bloatware they use to lock you down.

    >I was able to remote in to a job for 4 weeks straight from another country unbeknownst to my job but I also had my mom and dad supporting me to facilitate the caper

    Don’t do nursing, do IT. Full remote is very common and easy to get despite what SighSee doomers say just don’t agree to any “hybrid” cuck bullshit. You don’t have to be allowed to work away from the US to do it just do it and use a router level VPN and don’t tell anyone.
