Definitely, telecommuting is the future. I am not saying it will replace offline jobs but there will be significant growth.
There will be jobs that will be transitioned online, thus can be done anywhere. Examples are the ff: Chat/Email support, Social Media Coordinator, Virtual Assistant, Blog writing, accounting, HR, and more. If your job is something you can do or deliver online, then it can soon be transitioned.
Some companies have a hybrid model where there are days of the week that an employee can telecommute.
