    In a similar vein as distance learning, is there such a thing as distance employment? Where you work for an employer based in another country without having to live in that country.

    Yes in some industries it is known - although you are typically not employed as such. It more common for you to be a freelancer/self employed, as employment laws get a bit murky on this basis, especially across international boundaries.

    You can work from home. Typically this is things like admin, audio typing, or answering phone calls (like a call centre, but in your living room).
