Get Paid to Move & Work from Home
I’m a little tired of working from home. It’s not a pandemic thing. I’ve worked from my couch since 2015 and I think I need a change of scenery.
How about you?
If you’re someone who can work from your couch or someone else’s couch, I have a list of spots - ALL OVER THE WORLD - that will pay you to move there and work from your same couch in their city.
Here’s the list:
The Shoals Area, Alabama
Apply for this program and if you make $52,000 or more per year you can relocate to the Shoals area within 6 months of being selected. What do you get? Perks! And $10,00. Learn more here.
Want to get paid to move and get paid to buy a home? That’s part of Newton’s offer. hey offer up to $10,000 cash to new homebuyers and throw in a welcome package of over $3,000. Learn about it here
Ever thought about moving to…Tulsa? I’ve never been but would consider packing up and heading that way for what they are offering. They’ll pay you $10,000, give you a free desk space at a co-working space, and a ton of other perks.
An unusual perk if you decide to move to Northwest Arkansas? $10k in Bitcoin and…a free bike. If that’s enough to make you curious, learn more about the perks offered to those who make the move.
Italy sounds a whole lot better than this life I’m living in freezing Brooklyn. They won’t pay you to work from there, BUT you can work from some iconic locations that will make your remote life so incredible. Look at what I mean.
Looking to go somewhere that’s beautiful? Maine offers $4,500 tax credit if you live and work there. So why not?
Computer programs - get this: Chattanooga has a Geek Move program (odd name) offers computer developers $1,250 in relocation expenses and a $10,000 forgivable mortgage.
All you need to do to score $10,000 is to move to Hamilton, Ohio and be a college grad. Sounds like a decent deal if Ohio is on your radar!
One of the places paying you the most to make a move is Japan. The government-sponsored JET Program is recruiting people to live in Japan and work as Assistant Language Teachers. You’ll receive about 2,800,000 yen ($25,666 U.S.) in your first year, 3,600,000 yen ($33,000) in the second, 3,900,000 yen ($35,749) in the third and 3,960,000 yen ($36,300) in the fourth and fifth. Here are the details.
