5 ‘stay at home, work from home’ options

IN THE past few years, working remotely has become a favored employment setup of many, especially the younger generation. You can make a living right in your living room—all you need are a fast, stable internet connection and a laptop.

The pandemic has made it even more enticing and practical of an option. If you’re currently job searching, these five are just some of the many online and remote jobs you can apply for.

Virtual Assistant

Making appointments, scheduling meetings, taking calls, checking e-mails—it’s your job to keep a client on top of things, like an office secretary would do. If you’re an efficient multitasker, this might be a great option for you.

Content Creator

Many companies prefer to outsource their content, which means opportunities for skilled writers are aplenty. A content creator produces press releases, articles and copies for a client, whether they’re for the company website or social media.

Web Developer

Coding wizards can find a lucrative career as a web developer. There are three types: Front-end, which is involved in the design and visual aspect of the website; Back-end, which tackles more on how the website functions and interacts with users; and Full-stack, a comprehensive mix of both.

Social Media Manager

With a deluge of content to go through across a multitude of platforms, it can be difficult for a brand to be seen by its target market. As social media manager, you’re in charge of making sure the account you’re handling gets the exposure it needs to create brand awareness and boost sales.

Online English Teacher

While a degree in Education isn’t a requirement, you will need to possess qualities of a professional teacher. You’ll be teaching English—both written and oral—to foreigners of a wide age spectrum. Aside from patience and communication skills, you’ll need to have a genuine passion to help others.
