I moved to Mexico a year and a half ago to be with my husband. It was a difficult decision because it would mean leaving behind my career in Vancouver, Canada and taking the chance that I would either not be able to find work abroad or I would end up working in a job that didn’t take advantage of my education or previous work experience. I feel so blessed that I have been able to work virtually from home. I am so lucky to be working for a company where the job is challenging and rewarding and everyday I learn something new. Working from home has been such a great experience and I’m actually find that I’m more productive! Being at home with out any distractions means I am able to focus on my work and get more things done. This has been been one of the best decisions I’ve made.
James – I am originally from California and now I’m living in Mexico. I met my wife about 4 years ago and decided to move here. I made the decision to work remotely from home, which has been one of the best decisions that I’ve made. I have been working virtually for over 2 years and can’t imagine working any other way.. I’m very happy, I feel like my work is always recognized and never overlooked. Working with a company that truly believes in its employees and commits to their development within the company is important to me.
John - After both my partner and I served in the Armed Forces, we decided to do something different. We sold all of our furniture and moved to Mexico for a new adventure!! Lounging around the beach is ok for a while, but still being in my 30’s I actively set out to find a virtual computer position in my field of expertise, administration. I am glad I took the time to apply to the companies advertisement as I was skeptical when the job posting seemed to go to be true. This is a company with excellent labour practices, and also they take the time to train, and make sure you understand all company procedures thoroughly. I am very happy to be able live in the place of my dreams, and financially sustain myself while doing so.
I recently moved to Mexico City with my husband and after being here for just a few months I was starting to get frustrated because I wanted to start working. Luckily I have come in contact with wonderful people and I was able to become a virtual expat! Working from home has been such a great change for me, I am no longer stressing out about being in traffic or that the cost of gas has gone up and it’s refreshing to know that if me family needs me I’m just a yell away! Knowing that I am valued for my work and not for my presence motivates me to work even harder. I definitely would recommend being a virtual expat since it’s a different experience than working in an office and because I know that if something goes wrong with my system within seconds the issue is resolved – Alicia
I am originally from England and lived in Florida for 11 years before moving here to Merida Yucatan Mexico 3 years ago, I met my wife here and started my own computer repair company which was very hard to do, due to the language barriers and I got minimal work through the locals and the expats. I found this company offering a work from home package with great benefits and great staff and have managed to develop my computer skills even further and find that I am happy in my role within the company and within my personal life. Working from home is a great way to develop your inner skills while developing a great role within this great company – Jeff
Jody – I am originally from Halifax, N.S. I moved to Kingston, Ontario when I was 18 to attend university and raise a family. Being a young father, I worked 3 jobs to put myself through school. In 1999, I moved to Vancouver Island for a job in my chosen career. I have worked in the Hospitality industry all my life and held jobs right from Bell Man to Interim General Manager. I have a great deal of experience in opening new hotels and played a key role in the opening of Revelstoke Mountain Resort Nelsen Lodge. I met a wonderful person in Vancouver and decided to move to Mexico in 2010. Not knowing any Spanish at all, it was a daunting experience. Finding work was more than difficult and found myself considering moving back to Canada. I then had the fortunate luck of finding a company offering a work from home experience, where I could utilize my skills, make some money and not have to worry about my bad Spanish speaking!. This company has been a stepping stone for many wonderful things in my personal life, Not only do I get to work from home, I get to work with other Canadians and Americans in similar situations as my own. The company has been very supportive. I like how stream line the communications are between my self and the people I work with. Most times I feel they are right next to me giving me the support when I need it. I feel part of a virtual family. Even remembering my birthday with a nice e-card and many good wishes!

After working six years as a publicist in Australia I am now living in Mexico City to explore this fascinating country and to be closer to my boyfriend’s family. Before I discovered TeleworkingExpatsForHire.com I thought that my only employment option here was to work as an unqualified English teacher and earn a pretty low wage. So I was thrilled to find stimulating work in the field of public relations for a company in Canada, all made possible through the IT connections organised by TeleworkingExpatsForHire.com. Working part-time has given me the flexibility to continue my Spanish studies in Mexico, while also furthering my career. I had always imagined how ideal it would be to have a job I could perform from my computer anywhere in the world, never expecting it could be true! – Nicola
