The age of the internet has led to a major increase in people working from home. While remote working was already a thing of our culture, the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated it. Now more than ever, people from all walks of life are finding that work from home jobs are a better fit for their lifestyles. 

Organizations also see the benefits of providing work from home opportunities for their employees. With fewer rules about location, companies can find qualified candidates from all over the globe. If  you are interested in a career change but also want to work from home, you’re in luck! There are plenty of careers that can now be done right in the comfort of  your own home. 

  1. Writer

Simply put, anyone can write from anywhere. Today’s flexible work environment has allowed writers from all over the world to come together and produce unique content across a variety of different platforms. Writers come in many different shapes and forms. There are copywriters, content writers, novelists, magazine writers,  marketing writers… the list goes on. Make sure you explore different job boards, specifically those that prioritize diversity and inclusion, when looking for work as a writer.

  1. Proofreader

Similar to a copywriter, a proofreader ensures that written text is error-free in terms of formatting, punctuation, spelling, and grammar. Becoming a proofreader could be the work-from-home job for you if you have good attention to detail and are familiar with the Chicago Manual of Style and the AP Stylebook. As a proofreader, you may proofread for textbook writers, public relations businesses, websites, advertising companies, and more. Given the flexible nature of their work, proofreaders can typically work from anywhere, making it one of the best work from home jobs you’ll find. 

  1. SEO Specialist

A search engine optimization (SEO) specialist reviews, analyzes, and applies modifications to websites in order to increase the number of visitors and enhance the site's ranking on search engines. Most roles demand at least one year of experience as well as knowledge of industry SEO tools and practices, like Google Analytics, and website development platforms, like Squarespace. Similar to any other digital marketing job, SEO specialists can typically work from home (or wherever they choose) as long as they have the ability to get the information they need from all relevant IP addresses. 

  1. Online Therapist

Online therapists provide real-time mental health services using digital platforms such as video conferencing, phone chats, and text messaging. To practice online, you must have a master's degree in psychology or social work. If you are looking to practice across state lines throughout the entirety of the United States, you must also have an unrestricted license. If you only plan to practice in the state in which you were originally licensed, you can maintain your original license. There is a growing need for telehealth services that link healthcare practitioners with patients across all forms of medicine, mental health included. Exploring becoming a therapist and practicing online could be a lucrative career endeavor.  

  1. Web Developer

More and more technology organizations are relocating employment from the office to flexible or remote positions. If you have a bachelor's degree in computer science or a similar discipline, have completed a web development boot camp program, or have other relevant programming expertise, you may be eligible for full-time work as a remote web developer. The great thing about web development is that it can be done from almost any location in the world, as long as where you’re located has a strong signal!
