Hello, I am posting this question on behalf of a fellow SearchUnifiedCommunications.com reader: I have a valid Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification, and was wondering if there are any network administrator positions available that would allow me to telecommute? More specifically, I'm looking for a position where I could telecommute from other countries such as Chile. I learned from a Cisco article that some jobs within PC networking would be positions where workers would have the option to telecommute in order to maximize profits. If this is true, I plan to take advantage of these opportunities in order to be with my family, and still have a reasonable income to sustain myself and the debt I currently have here in the United States.

    Dear CCNA:This may be theoretically possible, but it will take some serious looking around to find a job where you can remote in from one country to another. Most of the telecommuting jobs about which I'm aware require employees to be citizens of the country in which the job is offered. As to whether or not that job could be performed outside that country, you'd have to discuss this with the HR or hiring managers at the company with the telecommuting position.My gut feel is that such opportunties will be few and far between, and that it might be harder to land such a position than you might think. My advice is to approach and talk to HR professionals at companies that offer telecommuting jobs, and ask them if you can be hired out-of-country to fill such a position. I would bet that at least half the time, the answer would be "no."You may want to try out this Google search to read some of the materials it turns up. In particular you might find these items helpful:1. 10 Top Telecommuting Jobs to Live Abroad (Yahoo Finance, Aug 2012)2. International Telecommute: How rare? (City-Data.com Sep 2010)3. Telecommuting Jobs (The Computer Nomad, undated)4. Global Telecommuting (WorldHum Sep 2006)5.

    I imagine there are numerous opportunities to do this type of work, especially given today's remote access technologies. Still, you'll likely come across scenarios where you'll want or need to be onsite such as when you're making network changes that would otherwise disconnect a remote connection. Overall, though, I don't see why not. It just depends on the organization's needs.
