Having a career where you can work from home used to be a dream for many people. The drive to work from home where you don’t have to commute to an office was once just a concept.
Thanks to technology, now more than ever there is a plethora of career paths you can go down, where you can operate completely remotely.
Every successful business needs an accountant, but not every business needs one that’s in the office 24/7. Accounting is a solid profession that can be done completely from home, anywhere in the world.
Do you think you have a knack for writing? Maybe you’ve got a particularly friendly tone, or even a corporate one. Copywriters are needed in all walks of life, and they can also come from all walks of life, so long as they’re a native speaker of the required language.
Social Media Manager
Social media is something that most new companies are adapting to tap into millennials and gen Z. Social media managers only need a working computer, and a steady internet connection and they can work from anywhere.
No site can expect to organically grow without at least a bit of SEO. Much like social media, an SEO specialist is a tool that you need to have in your toolbox for any successful marketing strategy. If you’re an avid traveller, you can balance that with an SEO career with the right client.
Times are changing, and therapists no longer need to be face-to-face to run consultations. You can now (if qualified) be a therapist completely online, provided you have the means to be able to do so.
Similar to a traditional personal assistant, a virtual assistant simply helps a business run more smoothly, without having to be in an office. Often virtual assistants work flexible hours, helping reply to emails, scheduling calls and updating calendars. An easy-going option for those who don’t want something too mentally taxing.
If you’ve an artistic bone and know how to code, you could be a web designer and enjoy the world of remote work, too. Web designers can work from anywhere in the world and is a valid career path for both 9-5ers and entrepreneurs.
Despite the plethora of platforms now making it possible to mentor people online, the very best mentors take matters into their own hands. Mentors can work from wherever in the world, which makes sense. Say you have a mentor who’s an eccentric businessman, it only makes sense that they can work from home.
Customer support assistant
We’ve all been there; you call your local UK business’ customer service and have an American customer service agent. This is because most customer service is actually outsourced, and a big portion of those agents are working from home.
If you’ve got a knack for the spoken word, a home studio and a track record of experience. You could enjoy a remote working life as a voice over. Voice overs rarely, if ever, have to go into a studio to record, and enjoy a life of remotely recording projects with many interesting clients.
For those who want a simple job that pays the bills, data entry professionals are also able to work from home. Again, provided they have a stable internet connection and a working computer.
Videos are needed for all sorts of purposes, be it for a corporate video, music video or even for a YouTube content calendar. Video editing is something that can be done remotely, and only requires some editing software and a computer with decent RAM.
