2020 changed the way we work. Many companies realized that remote work was a real, viable, option for their employees. This means that there are more remote jobs available than ever before.
If you’re looking to work from home but aren’t sure where to start, here are a few unique jobs worth learning about.
- Chat Agents
Are you customer service-oriented but not a huge fan of talking on the phone? A position as a chat agent might be for you. These individuals provide customer support through email or live chat. Email is self-explanatory, while live chat is similar to FB Messenger or texting, but through a company specific customer service program.
- Paid Surveys
Although paid surveys aren’t going to be your main source of income, they can be a worthwhile side gig in addition to your main job. As noted by The Work at Home Woman, popular sites include Branded Surveys, Mindswarms, Respondent, and Survey Junkie.
- Cooking at Home
If you have a flair for food, a job as an at-home chef might be for you. This can be anything from being a personal chef to starting your own business to selling food at local farmer’s markets or events.
- Freelance Writer/Blogger
If you’re a writer, it might be time to explore freelancing. Freelance writers can work for a variety of clients from the comfort of their own home. You can cold call businesses you think might be interested in your services, or check out an aggregate website that connects clients and writers.
Starting your own blog is also an option, although you won’t be making much money right away. A good blog is a passion project with the possibility of income in the future, but it usually takes quite some time to see results.
The job of your dreams might look a bit different than you previously thought. With so many positions allowing employees to work from home, you’re sure to find a remote job you’ll love.
