List of 5 Remote Jobs

I’ve compiled a list of five remote jobs that have more pay compared to others and in which a candidate would have a vast future. You can be your own boss and select your own working hours. You can be paid for your service per hour in remote jobs or even monthly depending on the recruiters. Let’s see the first most prominent remote job on the internet in our list.

Virtual Assistant

As we know, most entrepreneurs don’t have time to handle every single task of their business. So here comes the demand for virtual assistants. A virtual assistant is the most demanded candidate for every small or big business. Virtual assistants provide administrative services to a business. These include content management, social media management, email handling, writing, and interacting with clients to give them solutions to their problems. Virtual assistants mostly work from home (remotely).

So how do you become a virtual assistant? You just need to unlock your mind and forget the word impossible. The internet is the main hub for learning anything you want to learn. You don’t need to buy a paid course to become a virtual assistant. There are thousands of free videos and courses on YouTube alone, you just need to look for them. If you get two to three years experience, then this will become your dream job.

Average pay for virtual assistants

Anywhere from $19 to $100 per hour.

Freelance Writing

If you’re passionate about writing and you also want it to be your professional career, then you can start working online with writing skills. No matter what you know about writing or not, there’s a first time for everything. Every professional was once beginners. All you need to start writing is interest. So what do writers do? The most common answer for this question is that they write.

Of course they write, but it’s now for someone and the method of writing for others is just a little different than writing for ourselves. There are millions of websites that demand writers. People need writers for their website to drive traffic there. There are also amazon affiliate websites that promote a product through writing and the websites get commissions for the promotion of the product. Once you get a writing remote job, the recruiter or editor will provide you with a keyword which, in common language, we know as a topic.

You will write on that topic by doing extensive research and imagining you’re teaching a 5-year-old kid. The content should be plagiarism-free, meaning you will not copy anyone, whether it is rephrased or anything else. You can also watch videos on topics to further understand them and also take help from Google to find answers.

Average pay for freelance writing

$100 to $1,000 depending on the word count.

Influential Blogging

Influential blogging is also a prominent and most demanded skill for remote jobs. This is a kind of writing where you share information about your own experiences on a social media platform or any other website which can influence an audience. Blogs in the form of writing are mainly 300 words that encourages people. For instance, in a blog one can tell about the journey of their struggles and the obstacles had in that journey. It can also be for advertising a product. Most people on the internet are becoming bloggers on sites that help them earn high amounts of money.

You can also create your own website for blogging and, in at least 6 months, it will gain traffic of at least 2,000 people. So, this skill doesn’t only have an advantage or demand for the job, but you can also take advantage for your own purpose, making your own website is just one example of it. As for the blogging jobs, you can find a majority of websites on Google demanding bloggers. But before expecting to land a job, you need to create a portfolio that will speak for your experience.

Average Pay for influential blogging

$10 to $50 per hour.

Online Tutoring

Online tutoring is also one of the most famous and common skills for remote jobs. As Covid 19 has caused too much trouble in the world, learning from the internet has become more common, especially for students all over the world. Every educational institute started operating classes online and people are now more likely to rely on internet learning than physical classes. If you’re a professor, teacher, or a person with any other skill and you want to teach someone and earn in return, online tutoring jobs are a good fit for you.

There are some websites that are only for tutoring jobs. This job shouldn’t be a big mess for you if you have any teaching experience previously or presently. A person who hires you for online tutoring might ask for your degree or your education because it is immensely important for them to select a well-educated mentor to teach them. Most people hire an online tutor for academic purposes especially teaching science, English, physics, chemistry and biology.

Average pay for online tutoring

$15 to $30 per hour.

Bookkeeping

A bookkeeper’s job is to keep a record of financial events including transactions, withdrawals, sales, purchases, and many others. Bookkeepers should be a lot more serious about their job because, on this record, the business managers or owners make decisions about the next move in their business. There are a lot of opportunities for bank cashiers, businesses, and financial workers for this job. Bookkeepers are also highly demanded candidates for remote jobs and physical jobs as well.

You don’t even need a degree, you just need to have a portfolio or some samples to show your work in order to be selected or trusted by a recruiter. If you have done it before or know about data entry, then this job is more likely to interest you. Even if you have zero experience or are just starting out your freelance career, then you can start with data entry first and can learn bookkeeping later as well.

Average pay of for bookkeeping

$35 to $50 per hour.

Websites for Finding Remote Jobs

If you want to look for jobs on one of these skills, then you will find plenty of websites on Google, but I’m going to tell you some prominent ones. Craigslist is one of the most famous and easy websites to find jobs. You just need to type the keyword of the job and you’ll see many job advertisements. All you need to do is click one of the job ads and email them. LinkedIn is also one of the main hubs of every kind of job.

You need to find recruiters for the required jobs and connect with them. Also, keep in mind every job also has specific individual websites which are only for one specific job. Indeed, Monster, and Zip Recruiter demand mostly middle and senior candidates for the jobs. I’d recommend Reddit as well; there are many subreddits that contain job listings. If you really want a remote job, you can search all social media websites including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
