Let’s say that you’re looking for a fresh start. 2020 was the year that you lost your long-time job due to COVID-19 and you’re starting 2021 with a clean slate. A new year means a new you and a new job could be on the horizon.
But you don’t just want any old job; you want this year to be your year! And after the year we’ve all just had, no one can blame you. Here are some of the best online jobs to get into this year.
6 Best Online Jobs To Do in 2021
1. Content Writing
If you’re a writer, it’s likely that you’ve always been one. You always had a gift with words and were writing stories and before long you had a blog and now you’re here, faced with a choice of what to do with your writing skills.
One such option is becoming a content writer. This is something you can do from the comfort of your own home (or pretty much wherever you go), and there’s always someone in need of content being written for their website.
If you speak another language, or many other languages, you could be making a steady yearly wage doing translation jobs in one form or another. Translations from English to any other language are in very high demand.
Translation jobs can range from occasional assignments done on a freelance basis, to working for corporations and NGOs, even the government hires translators and pays them very well indeed. Put your language skills to good use today!
3. Online Tutoring
In the age of COVID, schooling is transitioning to online-only for millions of people. This also means that the age of in-person tutoring is waning as well.
If you have particular skills in one school subject or another, consider becoming an online tutor for a student struggling with a particular subject.
The types of tutoring for the specific subjects are almost endless and the pay is pretty good too! It’s the perfect gig for a university student looking to make a few extra pennies to put towards their student loans every month!
4. A Job In The Tech Field
If you’re familiar with technology, there’s a whole field of work that is open to you! From data entry to project management to software development or training to remote support for individual clients and large corporations.
The tech field is exploding, particularly with the COVID-19 pandemic. There’s never been a better time to join such a field, where your work is pretty much always guaranteed.
5. Virtual Receptionist
Given that most businesses are operating on some level in a work-from-home model, the office receptionist transitions their daily office life to doing their job at home.
If you’re looking for reception-style work, applying for receptionist positions at various jobs might just be your ticket to a virtual lifestyle.
6. Social Media Manager
Another ticket to an online workspace that you can do from anywhere is to manage companies’ or individual’s social media accounts. As much of the world is spending so much more time at home, social media usage is skyrocketing.
This means that many more companies that were previously hesitant about jumping online and using social media marketing as their primary method of getting their products out there to the wider audience will now be left with little choice but to do exactly that.
This will open a whole new swath of positions for managing social media for these companies. If you spend a great deal of time on social media and know-how the landscape works, consider becoming the go-to person for a company’s social media ambitions.
Whatever your skill set, there’s an opportunity for you to capitalize on it in the online space this year. You may even find that you enjoy the online workspace more than you did the office life.
The world is transitioning away from bricks-and-mortar offices as companies begin to realize that they don’t actually need the expense of having a physical building in order for employees to do their jobs – you could be a part of the future of our planet and perhaps even help build better business practices into the online space.
