Enjoying a high-paying career used to mean trudging to an office every day. Well, not anymore. Companies have been retooling their workforces to contain the transmission of COVID-19, which means there are more remote job opportunities in Montreal than ever before.
Working remotely means a dramatic shortening of your daily commute because your office is just a few steps away from where you slept.
It also means fewer distractions from chatty coworkers and a reduction in office drama but it doesn’t have to mean less money.
Check out this list of high-paying professional jobs that can be done from home.
Why You Should Apply: The clerk will be responsible for, among other things, "[developing] and [administering] document control policies and procedures including all correspondence, email," and "project documents."

Incumbent Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante turned up the heat on this election at a press conference on Tuesday after she slammed what she called Denis Coderre's lack of transparency.
Plante said she wants the Ensemble Montréal leader to do "what is reasonable and what makes sense" by opening his books to disclose his past work history and revenues.
When asked why it's important for the public to know about Coderre's past, Plante didn't hold back.
"It's about transparency," she explained. "It's common knowledge that all elected officials should be willing to open their books.
"To be honest, as well, it's not because you work for the private sector that you have to hide your numbers and your clients."
Coderre has reportedly said he would only release his work history if he gets elected mayor.
Following the former mayor's loss in the 2017 mayoral election, according to his LinkedIn page, he worked as a Strategic Development Councillor at the Stingray Music Group, an ambassador for the Montreal Jewish General Hospital, an administrator at Eurostar and a Special Councillor for Urban Mobility at the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile, the governing body of Formula 1.
They have jobs that range from part-time to full-time, and entry-level to executive. If you're just looking to freelance, they have listings for that, too.
Due to the increase in people wanting to work remotely, there's been an uptick in job scams even if you search reputable places like LinkedIn. Luckily, the team at FlexJobs filters through all that so you don't waste your time. It's part of the reason why it's worth paying for premium.

While dismayed Habs players held back tears at their post-game press conference, Lightning player Nikita Kucherov shared his thoughts about the season — including Canadiens fans — in his own emotional (and shirtless) audience with the media.
Players held back tears as they shared both their disappointment in the results and pride in their teammates.
"I've played on a lot of really good teams, with a lot of really good guys, it's hard right now," Gallagher said to the press.
"We've got so many players that worked their entire careers to get to this point and it's a tough pill to swallow."
Shea Weber reflected on the Canadiens' run as the league's underdogs.
"This group has a lot of character and we put up with a lot of adversity this year, we proved a lot of people wrong, in a tough year to boot."
When asked what he thought about the season, meanwhile, Price attempted to blame himself for the Habs' performance in the Stanley Cup Final, saying he didn't think he "played well enough at the start of the series."
Weber cut in to shoot him down. "I don't think that's the case at all. To be honest, I think we weren't good enough in front of Carey."
Though you don't need to be a professional actor, the company is looking for outgoing Montrealers who are regulars at a sandwich restaurant in Montreal. Only Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada can apply.
Auditions for "Project Sandwich Montreal" will be held online on July 16 and the shoot will take place on a day between July 23 and 27.
If selected, sandwich-lovers have to take a COVID-19 test on July 20 or 21, so you'd need to keep both dates open until the test is booked.
Those who get hired will make $75 for a wardrobe appointment, $75 for a COVID-19 test, and $750 for one day of filming. If your footage is used in the final commercial, you'd receive an additional $1,500 to $2,000.

Company: Groundglass Casting
Who Should Apply: Montreal-area sandwich lovers aged 18 to 75 years old. No acting experience is required, and this job posting specifically asks for Anglophones.
