The Downsides of Digital Nomadism

While a life of perpetual travel has its advantages, traveling attorney Paul Karl Lukacs thinks would-be vagabonds should know the drawbacks, too.

He’s published “five facts about being a digitial nomad that the more ardent boosters won’t tell you.”

In a sluggish economy, employers can be as choosy as they want, and they are hiring the candidates with the most traditionally impressive resumes. One of the issues currently percolating in the United States is the (completely legal) refusal of many employers to hire anybody who is not already employed. That includes you, nomad.
